ACRYLITE® for Signage
Build Your Brand Visibility with ACRYLITE®
Signs and the material they are made of are the most essential instrument for wayfinding.
Wayfinding enhances people's understanding and experience of a space. It is an information system that supports guidance through a physical environment. In complex surroundings such as campuses and urban centers, wayfinding is important. You can find it at healthcare centers or transportation facilities to guide people. In complicated architectural environments maps and symbols support wayfinding.
This page summarizes for you what ACRYLITE® material is best for your sign applications.
ACRYLITE® LED color changing back lit
ACRYLITE® LED coloring changing back lit is an extruded, gloss sheet that, when unlit, the sign appears Black. When illuminated, the sheet will evenly diffuse the color of the LEDs, whether White or RGB.
It’s superior diffusion hides LED hot spots when backlit at minimal distances. This eliminates the need for diffuser films previously required by the older cast formulation. It is manufactured from a special pigment formulation that yields 25 percent light transmittance – significantly more light output than traditional perforated films.
It is a popular choice for signage at large retail stores, where standing out from the crowd is a necessity.

In addition to enhanced print performance, our sheet comes standard with a custom masking configuration for fabrication and quality checks and each skid is specially packed to preserve sheet flatness.
Originally designed for picture framing (link to framing), ACRYLITE® non-glare, formerly P99, quickly became the go-to material for interior wayfinding as its light matte non-glare finish also meets ADA requirements. Its subtle textured finish creates a glare-free view from any angle, while showing off the natural beauty of your artwork and prints. This extruded sheet’s thickness tolerance make it ideal for braille signage. Its high optical quality and the fact that it contains 0% recycled content significantly reduce the occurrence of issues such as voids and char which can be found in other non-glare sheets.
