Specifically designed to give optimum performance in terms of even light distribution and superb brightness, our edge lit technologies bring your graphics to life! PPERSPEX® S-Lux & G-Lux are grouped together under one umbrella range, specially developed for visual communication, display and signage applications: PERSPEX® Illumination.

PERSPEX®  S-Lux, patented technology, has a special textured finish on one side of the sheet, producing an even illumination across the surface. Perfect for anything from small signs to large poster boxes and Euro posters, it is a versatile product giving optimum edge lighting capability regardless of the size of your sign.

PERSPEX® G-Lux is a transparent sheet with a double-sided gloss finish that contains a new particulate filled technology to carefully control the reflection of emitted light; giving excellent sign efficiency and superior even illumination with a graphic/diffuser. This allows for thinner light panels, optimized for diverse sign sizes, with no need for laser engraving. Created to complement PERSPEX® S-Lux, it is a versatile product that gives optimum edge lighting for any visual communication application.

In addition, PERSPEX® S-Lux & G-Lux offer all the product characteristics you have come to expect from PERSPEX® acrylic: outstanding weathering, light weight, easy to install and excellent durability.

Recycled content

The current production of our PERSPEX® cast acrylic sheets already contains a proportion of recycled MMA material. The majority of this material is waste from the manufacturing process which can be completely recycled by means of pyrolysis to provide raw material (MMA) for new acrylic sheets. Furthermore, all raw materials used in making our PERSPEX® sheets also comply with the requirements of the most recent version of the European Union Chemicals Regulation (REACH). In particular, PERSPEX® 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, PERSPEX® contains fossil carbon. However, thanks to its lower density, PERSPEX® PMMA contains less fossil carbon per m2 than other transparent plastics. As well as the lower density, another factor to note is that, compared with other plastics, the polymer molecule contains a lower percentage of carbon atoms.

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 thirty years (transparent sheets) as well as ten years (standard colours) for the PERSPEX® 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 PERSPEX® 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). PERSPEX® is a product offering sustainable, long-term use and excellent product performance.

PERSPEX® sheets can be converted back into their original raw material, methyl methacrylate (MMA), using various recycling processes. Most modern recycling processes convert PMMA sheets or waste from production processes into a MMA liquid monomer using chemical recycling (depolymerisation). The recovered MMA can then be reused to create a new product from an existing one. Renowned chemical companies are currently undertaking intensive research into improved depolymerisation technologies to achieve a more efficient and sustainable means of recovering the precious raw material MMA, which is used in manufacturing PERSPEX® acrylic sheets. These developments support efforts made by the market to increase the rate of PMMA recycling in Europe.
