ACRYLITE® LED light guiding edge-lit acrylic sheet is a transparent solution for lighting design. When lit from the side with LED’s, the embedded light-diffusing particles cause the light to diffuse forward for bright, uniform illumination. The surface will glow in the same color as the chosen LED. There is no need for surface etching, engraving, or printing to achieve a bright even lit surface.
When no light is fed into the sheet, the material offers a clear view without any imperfections.
To achieve optimal and uniform luminous efficiency, it is very important to use the recommended grade. The higher the grade, the further the light travels through the sheet when illuminated. ACRYLITE® LED light guiding edge-lit colorless 0E011 L is made for applications with widths between 12” and 24” when lit from two sides and for applications with widths between 6” to 12” when lit from one side.
Other product offerings include 0E010 SM, 0E012 XL, and 0E013 XXL to meet a variety of application widths. See the chart below to find the right grade for your project:
This sheet offers excellent solutions for the following applications:
- Transparent illuminated partitions
- Thin profile single and double-sided poster walls
This LED light guiding sheet maintains its properties when bent or formed. Scratches can be completely removed from ACRYLITE® LED by polishing. It is recommended that a white reflective backer be used for non-transparent applications. The light is better distributed throughout the sheet with the help of this backer pushing the light forward. We recommend ACRYLITE® premium WT020.
