PLEXIGLAS® is by far the most common material in our production, and we process it in a wide variety of grades.


We work with different types of PLEXIGLAS® such as:

  • PLEXIGLAS® gs (moulded)
  • PLEXIGLAS® xt (extruded)
  • PLEXIGLAS® Resist (impact resistant)
  • PLEXIGLAS® Optical
  • PLEXIGLAS® Satinice (satinised on one or both sides)
  • PLEXIGLAS® Hi-Gloss
  • PLEXIGLAS® Reflections
  • PLEXIGLAS® Textures

We process these types from solid sheets and blocks. Acrylic glass profiles (tubes and rods) are also processed.

Due to these different end applications, design, functionality and aesthetics as well as cost-effectiveness are mandatory attributes for our products. To get an impression of some of the products we have realised so far, take a look at our custom-made products.

The material PLEXIGLAS® offers a lot of advantages:

PLEXIGLAS® is available both colorless and in a wide range of colors. The most striking properties of colorless PLEXIGLAS® in particular are its outstanding light transmission, absolute colorlessness and brilliance, and its excellent surface quality. PLEXIGLAS® is also extremely resistant to aging and weathering, unbreakable and easy to shape and machine.
