ACRYLITE® Hi-Gloss is a co-extruded sheet with a super thin layer of color topped with crystal clear premium acrylic. This perfectly combined product provides the depth, luminosity, and high-end gloss look at a fraction of the cost of similar solutions such as back-painted glass.
As a co-extruded product the color is an inherent part of the acrylic and can withstand almost any fabrication method. This process creates a major advantage over other processes that call for additional coatings such as painting or laminating.
ACRYLITE® sheet manufactured with this technique has excellent surface quality, thickness tolerance, and has all the advantages of acrylic; lightweight, impact resistant, UV stable, and weather resistant. It offers amazing versatility and unsurpassed depth for your most discriminating designs.

Co-extrusion Is the Key...
The complex co-extrusion technology calls for ACRYLITE® molding compounds with perfectly adjusted rheology and a suitable co-extrusion line in order to manufacture optically superior and innovative acrylic sheet.
During co-extrusion, our molding compounds are independently plasticized (melted) and brought together in a profile die, where they fuse to form a homogeneous and inseparable composite before they exit the die.
The molten ACRYLITE® is polished and calibrated between high-gloss, hard chrome-plated steel rolls. Our sheet manufactured with this technique has excellent surface quality and thickness tolerances.
