Extruded Acrylic and Polycarbonate
Polycarbonate and acrylic extrusions are strong, lightweight, and offer enormous visual possibilities for a wide variety of lighting lenses and applications. Our decades of experience creating custom lighting profiles has given us a second-to-none understanding of their characteristics and appropriate lighting use cases.
Acrylic Lenses & Diffusers
Acrylic lighting profiles offer a great balance of strength, weatherability, and clarity. Available as a clear compound, acrylic extrusions (or co-extrusions) can be tinted, frosted or diffused to your custom specification. Acrylic typically has better optical properties and light transmission, but not as strong as polycarbonate lighting profiles. It’s also naturally UV stable for exterior functions and has excellent LED light diffusing properties.
Polycarbonate Lenses & Diffusers
Extruded polycarbonate light lenses provide a good balance of stiffness, impact resistance (approximately 250 times stronger than glass), abrasion resistance, extreme temperature performance, and color-ability. Tougher and more durable than acrylic lighting profiles, our custom polycarbonate lenses are known for their great high-temp operation, flammability resistance, strength, co-extruded possibilities, and flexibility.
