Fascinating effects with PLEXIGLAS® Textures with the Radiant effect

  • PLEXIGLAS® Textures with the Radiant effect: new eye-catching combination of a textured surface with a rainbow effect

  • Applications in store fixtures and exhibition booths, futuristic design in bars, lounges and lighting elements

  • Available with a Honeycomb, Ribbed or Pyramid texture 

 

Darmstadt – The new PLEXIGLAS® Textures in Radiant grade, which Evonik has been offering for about six months, is guaranteed to grab attention. For one thing, its textured surface diffuses light in an interesting way. For another, it creates colors that change according to the viewing angle, which is known as the Radiant effect. Passersby see a colorful play of hues that is set off to particular advantage by the surface textures.

The special Radiant surface coating is available on three different textures: Honeycomb, Ribbed and Pyramid. The combination of texture and color impressions makes PLEXIGLAS® Textures with the Radiant effect the center of attention, and equip the material for all applications that are meant to catch the eye, such as store fixtures and exhibition booths.

PLEXIGLAS® Textures also offers a diversity of options for interior design in bars, clubs and lounges. Designers and creative professionals make use of the material’s mirror-like reflections and scintillating colors. Lighting elements made from this new material in ceilings and floors, or in lamps, are particularly striking.

Ordinary daylight is usually enough to trigger the impressive rainbow effect, but the firework of colors is emphasized when PLEXIGLAS® Textures in Radiant grade is illuminated or backlit. Depending on the focus of the light source, this gives rise to a myriad of different shades.
This rainbow effect is very popular. The existing PLEXIGLAS® Reflections in Radiant grade has already been installed in a large number of applications. The new product that has now been further developed by the Acrylic Polymers Business Line at Evonik builds on this success.
