PLEXIGLAS® Hi-Gloss: Brilliant colors with piano lacquer effect

Light + Building 2010, Hall 4.1, Booth H31

• PLEXIGLAS® Hi-Gloss: glossy solutions for interior design
• High-gloss surface with a noble appearance

PLEXIGLAS® Hi-Gloss offers fascinating brilliance paired with high functionality. These colored PLEXIGLAS® sheets are provided with a coextruded high-gloss layer of transparent PLEXIGLAS® that is homogenously fused with the core material. This gives a stylish surface with a glossy deep-view effect that is quite unique, while retaining the proven properties of PLEXIGLAS®.

The piano lacquer effect gives the colors their special glow. This makes PLEXIGLAS® Hi-Gloss excellently suited for trendy wall designs, high-class store fixtures or exhibition booths and for modern furniture. The material can be sawed, routed or drilled with ease. It is thermoformable yet extremely tough.

PLEXIGLAS® Hi-Gloss is available in nine trend colors, but can also be provided in all colors of the PLEXIGLAS® range, from opaque to translucent, in line with customer requirements. The sheets are 6mm thick and can be provided with the transparent high-gloss PLEXIGLAS® layer on one or both sides.
PLEXIGLAS® Hi-Gloss stands out through its elegant piano lacquer effect, lending incomparable gloss to decorative interior design and lighting.
