ACRYLITE® OP-2 acrylic sheet
filters out 98% of the UV-range of light (200-400 nanometers) and offers
excellent light transmission in the visible range between 400 and 700
nanometers. ACRYLITE® OP-2 sheet�s proprietary technology eliminates the
objectionable yellow tint evident in other UV-filtering products. Easily
fabricated, it can be thermoformed, cold-formed, screen printed and
For your conservation needs, ACRYLITE® OP-2 cell cast continuously
manufactured acrylic sheet provide unsurpassed protection from damaging
ultraviolet (UV) light rays.
These unique products are specifically designed with Envonik's
proprietary technology to ensure exceptional UV protection, excellent
optical quality and clarity.
These properties, combined with ACRYLITE sheet's impact resistance and
ease of fabrication have established ACRYLITE® OP-2 sheet as the
standard for UV protection in the framing, conservation and museum
markets. Because it filters out 98% of the harmful ultraviolet light
portion of sunlight, it is used for display cases and protective
glazing, primarily by museums, galleries and private collections.
ACRYLITE® OP-1 acrylic sheet is
a UV transmitting, cell cast sheet that is usually used for instrument
applications. It contains no additives or stabilizers and, therefore,
should not be used in applications where resistance to degradation from
long term exposure to UV light is an issue.
ACRYLITE® OP-4 acrylic sheet it a UV transmitting, cell cast sheet. The
difference between ACRYLITE�® OP-4 sheet and ACRYLITE® OP-1 sheet is
that ACRYLITE® OP-4 sheet contains thermal stabilizers, making it more
more suitable for applications requiring resistance to degradation from
long term exposure to UV light. ACRYLITE® OP-4 is used in appliations
such as sun tanning beds and terreriums. It transmits 70 percent or more
of the available ultra-violet light in the 340 nanometer range.
