In need of arcylic products? Aguila Auto Glass now offers a wide variety of acrylic sheets which can be cut into custom designs to fit anyone’s needs. From the basic office needs such as signs and frames to the most commercial of use such as chairs, Aguila now offers acrylic sheets in various sizes, thickness and colors, which can be cut to meet customer demands. Unlike regular glass, acrylic plastic is lighter and has a higher impact strength. It is also easier to shape as compared to glass, allowing for more applications with multiple color or design schemes. Apart from commercial and home use, acrylic plastic is also used in the automotive industry. Most often however, they are used on commercial vehicles and marine transport. Arcylic used as glass is common for these vehicles due to its durability, resitant properties and light weight. Furthermore, it is also easy to fabricate and install. At the moment, Aguila Auto Glass offers acrylic sheets in either 4×6 or 4×8 feet. The clear sheets are available in various thickness, ranging fro 1.5mm to 25mm. Meanwhile, colored sheets are available from 1.5mm to 12mm. Mulitple colors are available. For more inquires abo...

New Materials Shine Bright In Growing LED Market : Plastics Technology

Rapid expansion of LED technology has spurred development of new formulations for a wide range of lighting components. Here are examples of activity in this fast-moving field. Covestro’s high-transmission Makrolon LED2245 OC is found in headlamps as light guides and light pipes, and as a daytime running lamp. Momentive’s Silopren LSR 7189 addresses the higher flame retardance required by outdoor and specialty lighting without sacrificing clarity and long-term color stability Used for LED chip housings, Lanxess’ highly reflective PCT compounds reflect the light of the LED almost completely, keeping brightness loss to a minimum. The MS-2002 Moldable White Reflector Silicone forms the parabolic mixing chamber of Pathway’s downlight. Shin-Etsu newest LSR, with a 95% transparency, meets the increasing demands for higher heat/brightness characteristics of cutting-edge LED technologies. Sheet extruders now have access to precision optics and custom solutions for diffusion, de-glaring and light-guide applications such as this optic microstructure.
