ACRYLITE® LED diffused sign grade Product Information

Diffused sign grade for backlighting

Product

ACRYLITE® LED diffused sign grade is specially formulated for LED sign faces. It possesses a frosted surface with unique optical properties that provide superior light diffusion and eliminate visible LED hot spots without the use of a diffuser film. The frosted surface also works to hide fingerprints and scratches which helps maintain the service life.

Acrylic withstands the effects of weathering much better than other sign face materials. Polycarbonate will yellow and become hazy after only a few years of UV exposure and it will lose much of its impact strength. Our LED diffused sign grade has been specially formulated to combat outdoor elements without yellowing while maintaining its impact strength for many years.

Although it's designed to work with LEDs, it provides unsurpassed performance with neon and fluorescent light sources.
