, our most economical sheet, is the choice to make when the cost of materials and labor is the primary consideration. GPA is available in clear, translucent, transparent and several metallics. It is available in widths up to 110 inches. GPA can be formed, decorated, cemented and cut to any shape or size. With superior product and thermoforming properties, vast color selection and size availability, Aristech GPA offers exceptional
design freedom at an economical price.
GPA can be cold formed at room temperatures to yield generous curved surfaces with consistency. For applications requiring smaller curvatures or unusual shapes, it can be thermoformed by heating to approximately 360 degrees Fahrenheit and then drawn into the desired shape by vacuum or air pressure.
Outstanding weather resistance properties have made Aristech GPA sheet the product of choice in outdoor signs for more than 30 years. GPA sheet can withstand temperatures up to 190 degrees Fahrenheit with little of no effect on product properties. Higher temperatures can be tolerated for short periods of time without permanent damage. GPA sheets remain serviceable at extremely low temperatures (-30 degrees Fahrenheit).
Aristech's GPA has impact (or breakage) resistance that is many times greater than glass of equivalent thickness.
Clear GPA sheet has clarity equal to or better than ordinary glass. GPA has approximately 93 percent light transmittance compared to 88 percent for ordinary glass of the same thickness.
The overall coefficient of heat transmission (U factor) of GPA is 1.04 compared to 1.25 for glass. This means that GPA insulates approximately 20 percent better than ordinary glass of the same thickness.
