General Purpose Acrylics

When it comes to representing your brand, Aristech’s GPA & Acrysteel® brands offer superior light diffusion and UV resistance for a more durable sign, coupled with the excellent color consistency you need and the Right-Sizes you want.

Features & Benefits

  • Extreme temperature and UV resistance over the long term

  • Greater UV resistance than UV-treated polycarbonate – Polycarbonate yellows rapidly with exposure to UV

  • Greater UV resistance than UV-treated polycarbonate – Polycarbonate becomes brittle over time after exposure to UV

  • Superior thermoforming: unlike polycarbonate, continuous cast acrylic does not require drying prior to thermoforming – performing better than extruded acrylic and polycarbonate both

  • Greater manufacturability: continuous cast acrylic is easily routed, does not require special resin for trim capping of channel letters (vs polycarbonate), and does not warp, shrink or expand like extruded acrylic

  • Excellent color-matching ability and consistency

  • Exceptional light transmission

  • Right-Size sheets available to minimize labor and scrap costs
