CRYLUX®re is an acrylic sheet material which is made using 100 % recycled methyl methacrylate (rMMA), obtained from PMMA scraps and waste. The rMMA is gained from depolymerisation of acrylic sheets and liquid waste coming from our own production by using a cracking and distillation process which recovers MMA.

CRYLUX®re comes not only in clear transparent but also in opal white, dense white and black. Other colours and finishes are available upon request, including mat surface finishes as well as with increased chemical resistance (Beauté).

CRYLUX®re, made of recycled acrylic, is the perfect choice for a wide range of applications due to its high optical transparency, durability and UV stability. Whether you are looking for a new corporate signage, a high quality POS/POP display, a luxury shop fitting or even individual pieces of furniture and art works. CRYLUX®re will maintain the same properties as material produced with virgin acrylics.

Recycled content

We use 100 % recycled methyl methacrylate (rMMA) for the production of our CRYLUX®re cast acrylic sheets. The material is obtained from PMMA scrap and waste produced during manufacturing processes (read more about this process on page 3 of the PERSPEX®re brochure). Furthermore, all raw materials used in making our CRYLUX®re sheets also comply with the requirements of the most recent version of the European Union Chemicals Regulation (REACH). In particular, CRYLUX®re sheets do not contain any of the substances listed in the current version of the ECHA Candidate List of Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC). PMMA does not contain any toxic substances or heavy metals which may cause environmental damage or pose risks to health.

Fossil CO2 bound in the material

Owing to the MMA used as a raw material in the manufacturing process, CRYLUX®re contains fossil carbon. By using 100 % recycled MMA in the manufacture of CRYLUX®re acrylic sheets, a valuable contribution is made to reduction in waste and CO2 as this cuts down on the amount of virgin material required.

Product life cycle

Acrylic glass (PMMA) is a robust, highly transparent and extremely durable material featuring excellent UV stability and resistance to weathering and ageing. We guarantee a service life of ten years for the CRYLUX®re product family. The sheets are protected against the harmful effects of ultra violet rays and there are no significant changes with regard to optical or mechanical properties. When processed, used, and cared for in an appropriate manner, the life cycle of our sheets can be considerably longer than ten years. An extended service life also leads to saving resources as fewer replacements are required. Our CRYLUX®re sheets are used in a wide variety of interior and exterior applications where priorities include durability, UV stability and, above all, transparency (92 % light transparency for colourless sheets). CRYLUX®re is a product offering sustainable, long-term use and excellent product performance.
