LUMEX® G is the proven brand on the market for premium quality modified polyethylene terephthalate (PET-G). LUMEX® G is the best choice for thermoforming and hot line bending applications. LUMEX® G sheets are flame retardant rated "difficult-to-ignite" (fire behavior according to EN 13501-1: B-s1, d0), approved for use in the food industry and show very high impact resistance. They are also excellent to print with UV curing inks and fast, convenient to convert.

LUMEX® G sheets feature enhanced thermoforming capabilities as they do not crystallize. Vacuum forming requires no pre drying and is therefore significantly quicker and more cost-effective.

LUMEX® G sheets are suitable e.g. for all kinds of glazing (bus shelters, posters, machines), for medical appliance packaging, displays and signs for interior and exterior use as well as for three-dimensional POS/POP displays.

Recycled content

We are already recovering and reusing our own production waste to create new material in the manufacture of LUMEX® sheets, and we aim to continue increasing the proportion of recycled regrind content in the future.

All raw materials used in our LUMEX® sheets comply with the requirements in the current version of the European Union's Chemicals Regulation (REACH). In particular, LUMEX® sheets are free of any of the substances listed in the current version of the ECHA Candidate List of Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC).

Product life cycle

Our LUMEX® product family comprises Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET), a durable thermoplastic. In addition to good long-term properties, this material provides excellent resistance to chemicals, especially our LUMEX®A (A-PET) version. In accordance with EN 13501-1, both LUMEX® A and LUMEX® G sheets are also classified as "B-s1,d0" and are rated “difficult-to-ignite”. The LUMEX® version featuring UV protection offers good weather resistance and these sheets can also be used in outdoor applications for periods of several years. LUMEX®A sheets are sturdy and robust with a high impact strength even at temperatures as low as minus 20°C.

Recyclability

The whole LUMEX® product family can be sorted into individual types for recycling and reuse. LUMEX®A can be disposed of in category 1 (PET) plastic waste in the same way as, for example, PET plastic bottles, meaning it is extremely suitable for recycling. At 3A Composites, we are committed to processing our production waste within the company and using it again to manufacture new products.
