Description of acrylic aquarium application

Surrounded by colorful sea creatures, visitors to this mall enjoy a peaceful aquatic environment thanks to ACRYLITE® block. The structure consists of three massive round aquariums varying in height and diameter. All blocks were thermoformed in a heating cabinet and then bonded using ACRIFIX®, a multi-component adhesive to ensure a bubble-free, durable bond.
