PLEXIGLAS® Resist

These impact-modified multi-skin, corrugated and solid sheets and tubes combine toughness with excellent weather resistance.

PLEXIGLAS® Resist Cast

Cast PLEXIGLAS® Resist is a highly weather resistant sheet material from impact-modified acrylic (polymethyl methacrylate, PMMA). The sheets offer greater break resistance than standard acrylic during transport and handling, the entire fabrication process, installation and subsequent use.

PLEXIGLAS ® Resist Extruded

Extruded PLEXIGLAS® Resist is a highly weather resistant sheet material from impact-modified acrylic (polymethyl methacrylate, PMMA). The grades PLEXIGLAS ® Resist 45, -65, -75, -100 show increasing impact strength in that order. The sheets therefore offer greater break resistance than standard acrylic during transports and handling, the entire fabrication process, installation and subsequent use.

PLEXIGLAS® Resist Properties & Applications

PLEXIGLAS® Resist Properties

PLEXIGLAS® Resist combines the positive product properties of PMMA with the toughness of other plastics such as polycarbonate (PC). Besides the general properties of PLEXIGLAS® like - Easy to fabricate , - High surface hardness, - Light weight – Half the weight of glass, - 11 times more break resistant than glass, - External light transmission and brilliance, Outstanding weather resistance

PLEXIGLAS® Resist Applications

Due to these properties PLEXIGLAS® Resist is suitable for the following applications:
- Glazing of store fixtures, counters and fair booths,
- Protective glazing such as general access protection, housings for machines, equipment and workplaces,
- Vehicle glazing, e.g. windshields for motorcycles and scooters, interior glazing in buses and trains
- Signage, e.g. illuminated signs, indicator panels, poster pillars,
- Structural glazing outdoors, e.g. barrel vaults for bus stops, bicycle stands, walkways,
- P.O.P. displays and sales racks, glazing of vending machines, drawing implements, etc.
In the field of vehicle glazing, PLEXIGLAS® Resist 75 is suitable for use in classes E to F according to the German regulation ABG No. 2326 (e. g. trailers, caravans, building site vehicles, forklift trucks, motorcycle windshields etc.). Moreover, it is approved to DOT-112, AS-6, M-34 to M-84. All clear-transparent PLEXIGLAS® Resist sheets are approved for food-contact applications.
