What is ACRYLITE®?
Since 1976, ACRYLITE® has been the acrylic material for inspired minds. Each one of our products provide consistent quality, groundbreaking versatility and excellent performance characteristics for designers, architects and creatives alike.
We are a German engineered, American-based brand, specializing in PMMA plastics. PMMA stands for Poly(methyl methacrylate) which is a clear plastic acrylic material that can be used as a replacement to glass. To stop there in defining who we are would be to insinuate this is all we are but that is far from the truth.
With the help of Walter Bauer, a new chemist on the scene, research showed that poly(methyl methacrylate) or PMMA is a solid and transparent material. About 20 years after Röhm decided to venture into the world of plastics, his team was finally able to control the polymerization of the raw material between conventional glass panes. This produced thin acrylic glass panes which Röhm registered under the brand PLEXIGLAS® in 1933.
Under new company leadership, we combine tradition and innovation and take big steps towards our overriding goal: being the global market and technology leader in methacrylate chemicals. We have a new company name, a new look and a completely new demeanor, but one thing will not change: we will remain your reliable and indispensable partner.
Here at ACRYLITE®, we are dedicated to providing our customers with quality products. We stand by our warranties to ensure that we are providing top grade acrylic products that uphold to our company standards and deliver in the way our customers expect.
