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

ACRYLITE® Satinice crystal surface acrylic sheet, formerly called ACRYLITE® Crystal Ice, was used to create one of the world’s largest diamond sculptures measuring 8-feet-tall. The unique sculpture was designed as a sign to promote Denney Jewelers in Springfield, Illinois.

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 Roehm America’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, product manager of Acrylic Sheet Specialties at Roehm America, said she was impressed with the way that ACRYLITE® Satinice was used. “Roehm America 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.
