Optimum Light Diffusion

ACRYLITE® Satinice optimum light diffusing acrylic products take advantage of special particles that diffuse light passing through the sheet. These particles, distributed throughout the material, work to eliminate hot spots. Light will be diffused and transmitted differently depending on the grade (and sometimes depending on the thickness). The right balance between light diffusion and transmission can soften the light in a room and enhance any environment.

Grades such as 0D010, WD008, and WD500 offer an evenly textured finish and varying degrees of diffusion and whiteness. If it is important to have a white appearance with the lights off, you might choose WD008; for higher efficiency, 0D010 might be better in your application.

ACRYLITE® Satinice optimum light diffusing acrylic can be easily fabricated just like other ACRYLITE® acrylic sheet and tube products and it retains its frosted surface when thermoformed, unlike other matte finished products. Some benefits include 100% recyclability, 11 times impact strength to glass and very high weather resistance.




Features & Benefits


  • A soft frosted texture throughout the entire sheet
  • Light diffusing beads evenly distributed throughout material
  • Texture is retained after thermoforming
  • Excellent balance between light diffusion and light transmission (up to 91%)
  • Fingerprint and scratch resistant surface



Light Transmission & Product Range


All products below are available in sheet sizes of 49” x 97” and 48" x 96" and thicknesses of .118” and .060” to .472”.

Applications


This grade of materials provide an excellent balance between light diffusion and transmission which can enhance any environment. Preferred for backlit applications such as luminaires and exhibition booths, they can also work well with the following applications:

  • Architectural lighting, decorative glazing, privacy partitions, shelves, furniture, POP, retail/store and fixture displays
  • Wall paneling in architectural applications
  • White/translucent grades as lens for luminaries and skylights
  • Tubes for architectural lighting

Also Available in Tube Form


ACRYLITE® Satinice is available in tube form as well. Our frosted acrylic tubing is manufactured with a light diffusing polymer which creates a frosted, velvety non-glare surface. They are available in a frosted colorless, 0D010 DF, and frosted white finish, WD300 DF. The frosted finish hides fingerprints and scratches, while maintaining high light transmission. ACRYLITE® Satinice tubes are ideal for exterior and interior lighting applications, as well as store fixtures and POP displays.


Optimum Light Diffusion - Enhanced

For the ultimate in fixture performance and accuracy, the Enhanced Satinice grades--which include WD852, WD853, WD854, and WD855--offer greater light transmission and diffusion while having a neutral appearance with very little color shift. Choose a higher color number for more diffusion and a lower number for more light transmission. All of the thicknesses within a particular grade of Enhanced Satinice look the same, so the thickness you need is only determined by the mechanical considerations of your application.




Features & Benefits


  • Four grades provide wide range of diffusion
  • Optics are consistent across all thicknesses
  • Matte surface provides better light scattering, glare reduction, and scratch resistance
  • 100% recyclability

Velvet Texture

ACRYLITE® Satinice velvet texture acrylic sheet is perfect for designs that charm and amaze. The elegant texture adds beauty to any environment without sacrificing durability. This translucent acrylic has a smooth velvet-like coating on one or two sides of the sheet and is clear along the edges.

It is 100% recyclable, offers very high weather resistance, and is easy to fabricate. At 11 times the impact strength of glass, this material is still lightweight, at about half the weight of glass. It is a better alternative to frosted and sandblasted glass that you see on the market. Coming in a wide range of colors, this material works great for a variety of applications.

Features & Benefits


  • Velvety frosted texture on one or both sides
  • Extremely easy to machine and fabricate
  • Wide range of thicknesses and colors available
  • Fingerprint and scratch resistant surface

The following products are available in sheet size 48” x 96” and thickness of .236”:

Applications


This material offers excellent solutions for the following applications:

  • Architectural lighting, decorative glazing, privacy partitions, shelves, furniture, POP, retail/store fixture displays, and exhibition booths
  • Wall paneling in architectural applications
  • White/translucent grades as lens for luminaries and skylights
  • Tubes for architectural lighting


Crystal Surface

ACRYLITE® Satinice crystal surface has a frosted acrylic surface that helps diffuse light to enhance your design options. Its appearance is reminiscent of etched glass and is available with a frosted surface on one or two sides. The grade shows clear along the edges and is a great material to use for applications needing high light transmission rates.




Features & Benefits


  • Medium frosted texture on the surface of the sheet
  • Excellent thickness tolerance
  • Texture is retained after thermoforming
  • Crystal clear edges when polished
  • Fingerprint and scratch resistant surface
  • 100% recyclability
