3A Composites GmbH has developed, manufactured and marketed high-quality aluminum composite panels, structural composite material, plastic sheets and lightweight foam boards for architecture, visual communication and transport & industry markets since 1969. The company’s famous brands ALUCOBOND®, DIBOND®, ALUCORE®, KAPA® and FOREX®, have established its reputation as a global company.
Following the integration of the Polycasa group in April 2015, 3A Composites GmbH has extended its product portfolio with a wide choice of plastic sheet to strengthen its position as a diverse and leading manufacturer of materials for display, building and industrial applications in Europe.
At this year's K show, the company will introduce its uniquely combined product range and the new brand names for the proven acrylic glass range by Polycasa – the cast acrylic glass "CAST" is now called "CRYLUX™" and the extruded acrylic glass sheet "XT" is now "CRYLON®".
CRYLUX™ – cast acrylic in lively, vibrant colours
Acrylic glass is the perfect choice when it comes to looks because of its high transparency, resistance and UV stability.
CRYLUX™ (formerly POLYCASA® CAST) is one of the optically strongest plastic sheets in this group. Manufactured from cast polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), it is versatile and can be used for company signs, shop fittings, individual items of furniture and in the building industry. The product provides perfect transparency for displays and lively, vibrant colours for visual communication. It also encourages the attractive expression of form because it is easy to work with using most techniques.
The assortment of colours goes from gloss grade (CRYLUX™ Argenta) through glowing fluorescent colours (CRYLUX™ Neon) to matt, non-reflective surfaces (CRYLUX™ Design). A whole palette of colours in opaque, matt, transparent and translucent finishes is available. Customer-specific colour ideas can be manufactured on request.
There are also product variants suited to the requirements of particular applications: CRYLUX™ Beauté with enhanced resistance to chemicals, CRYLUX™ Anti-Bacteria with antimicrobial and fungicidal protection and CRYLUX™ Lumina, Optima and Vision, which are specially formulated to be used with LED lighting or as projection walls.
CRYLON® (formerly POLYCASA® XT) are large-format acrylic glass sheets with brilliant clarity and very good optical characteristics and outstanding colour reproduction which comes in various transparencies. CRYLON® can be shaped and is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. The sheets are characterized by the following attributes:
- Very good weather and age resistance
- Resistant to foodstuffs and free from toxic substances or heavy metals
- Available in anti-reflective, opal and opaque finish
- Easily recyclable
- The impact resistant CRYLON® 610, CRYLON® 620 and CRYLON® 630 variants are notable for their outstanding mechanical characteristics and excellent impact strength.
- Manufactured in compliance with ISO 7823-2
Polycasa Lenticular® sets your product apart by bringing images alive which leads to captivated consumers. Lenticular is a range of extruded Polyethylenterephthalate Glycol (PETG) sheets, specially created for lenticular use. This dynamic technology leads to unique opportunities to create dramatic multi-imaging visual effects including displaying before and after images; making a logo or product jump out of the page; showing animation or action video sequences; adding 3D to a graphic or typography; and morphing one image into a completely different one. Lenticular is suitable for all kinds of standard and special format applications. It’s ideal for the promotional, packaging and point of purchase display industries.
