ACRYLITE® in One of the World’s Largest Diamond Sculptures

Unique sculpture designed as a sign to promote Denney Jewelers in Springfield, Illinois

ACRYLITE® Satinice crystal Ice acrylic sheet was used to create one of the world’s largest diamond sculptures measuring 8-feet-tall. Ace Sign Co., Central Illinois’ largest sign manufacturer, developed and produced the two-ton diamond sculpture. “We didn’t want a traditional sign. We strived to make something more exciting and POLYVANTIS Sanford LLC's ACRYLITE® Satinice proved to be an excellent solution for achieving such a unique design,” said Scott Bringuet, manager of Sales and Design at Ace Sign Co. “The acrylic sheet’s frosted and abrasion resistant texture mimicked the exterior and durability of a diamond. It also had excellent light diffusing properties and high light transmission, which gave the diamond the ability to ‘glow’ with the 2,000 LED lights behind it.”

Antoinette Spages, a product manager at POLYVANTIS Sanford LLC, said she was impressed with the way that ACRYLITE® Satinice crystal surface acrylic was used. “POLYVANTIS Sanford LLC is known for its innovative acrylic products, and it is always a thrill to see our customers create unique and inspiring designs with our material,” says Spages. “Satinice is such a versatile product that offers a variety of excellent design possibilities for signage, Point-of-Purchase (POP) store fixtures and decorative glazing applications, however, this type of outdoor illuminated structure is definitely a first.” The ACRYLITE® acrylic sheet was obtained through ACI Plastics, a St. Louis, Missouri, distributor and fabricator of plastic sheets, rods and tubes.
