Optical and Weathering Properties

PLEXIGLAS® acrylic resins offer outstanding optical properties, affording one of the highest spectral transmissions in the plastic industry.

These same resins offer the user low haze for a truly spectacular appearance.  Combine this with the superior UV weatherability of the resin and it's no wonder why PLEXIGLAS® acrylic resins are the material of choice for automotive, sign, glazing, lighting, and many other exterior end-use applications.

Spectral transmission

PLEXIGLAS® acrylic resins are naturally water-like in appearance and exhibit high transmission with low haze.

Refractive indices

PLEXIGLAS® acrylic resin is often used as a glass replacement and conveniently its refractive indices are relatively close to those of glass.

Weathering properties

PLEXIGLAS® acrylic resins remain virtually unchanged after long-term exposure during both accelerated and real-time weathering.
