  • works with White & RGB LEDs
  • cast, easy to fabricate and route

Features & benefits

ACRYLITE® LED optimized letter block acrylic is ideal for everything from standalone dimensional letters and logos to push through letters. This material can be routed out for LEDs to be embedded or left solid and backlit. It’s specially formulated color that blends 7328 & 2447 whites to be more visible when unlit and brighter when illuminated.  It also eliminates the need for painting or applying white or frosted vinyl to thick, clear sheet in push through applications.

This product offers a high degree of white opacity in indoor light and daylight. Its translucency has been optimized to offer maximum transmission paired with optimum light diffusion to eliminate unsightly hot spots and fluctuations in luminance.

It offers the following characteristics:

  • No LED hot spots due to optimum light diffusion
  • Extremely weather & UV stable to retain whiteness for many years of service
  • High luminous efficiency and therefore cost savings, through improved diffusion
  • Easy to machine and fabricate
  • 100% recyclable

LED optimized letter block greatly reduces fabrication cost by reducing or eliminating labor steps such as sanding and painting or the application of a diffuser film, which are required when using materials with inferior diffusing properties. When manufacturing channel letters, the cost savings can be significantly higher as there is no need to fabricate the aluminum light cans.

It is available in a bright luminous white, this letter block allows you to go directly from machining to assembly, saving time and cost. If your design requires a secondary color, you can apply a translucent film to the sheet prior to machining which allows for a multitude of surface colors. A third option for coloration can be achieved by adding a coating or film to the sides of the letters or graphics. Coating the sides of the letters could eliminate the halo effect. Depending on the color and opacity of the coating or film, blocking out the sides will increase the luminance of the letter face.
