Transparent acrylic in fluorescent colours such that the edges seem to light up brightly. This material is striking and ideal for eye-catching applications.

Acrylic is hard, weather-proof, UV-proof and colour-fast. Furthermore, it has a high-quality finish.

Typical applications: Fluorescent acrylic is used mainly for decorative applications in the advertising industry and in consumer products. Light shone from the side is scattered across all its edges and engraved lines, creating a clear contrast, which makes the material very suitable for edge-lighting applications. Even in unlit applications, the edges seem to glow.
Fluorescent acrylic lends itself perfectly to the creation of professional-looking products that can be used immediately without any finishing. Typical applications include advertising billboards, product displays, give-aways and machine housings.

Design: For most applications acrylic is an easy-to-use material with few issues. However, when connecting the material by means of slots or finger joints, it is important to take the thickness tolerance into account. The sheet thickness can vary by a few tenths of a millimetre; it is therefore advisable to design sufficiently large joints.
Acrylic is a brittle material; rather than becoming deformed, it will sooner split or break if the stresses are too high. To reduce the risk of splitting of stress-bearing components, inside corners can be rounded off. Flexible connections such as snap-locks and sninges can be made reliable, but must be designed in such a way that the internal stresses in the material do not become too great. Testing and optimising these features before actual production is a must.

Finishing: Finishing is usually not necessary because of the high quality finish the material has as standard. It is however extremely suitable for dyeing or printing on. Surfaces can be given a matte finish using fine sandpaper or by sandblasting.

Bonding: It is possible to glue acrylic, but solvent-based adhesives are not recommended for use with laser-cut parts. Acrylic can be easily attached or joined with double-sided adhesive film.

Appearance: Acrylic is excellent for laser-cutting and the process leaves behind very few traces. The cut edge becomes shiny and clear with no discolouration. As there is virtually no melting of the cut edge it is possible to cut fine details.
Surface engraving is possible and results in a matte white surface. The protective film is removed before surface engraving such that very minor smoke formation can be observed around the engraving. Line engraving is also possible and results in a clearly visible line.
