Arkema Plexiglas® ELiT II

Plexiglas ELiT II EDGE-LIT TECHNOLOGY ACRYLIC SHEET Plexiglas ELiT II acrylic sheet is a melt calendared acrylic APPLICATIONS sheet that has the ability to diffuse light coming from light n Poster boxes or light boxes sources located at the edges of the sheet. Light is diffused towards the front face creating bright and evenly illuminated display panels. This effect is achieved through technology that will reorient the light source towards the surface n Illuminated signs for airports subways train stations bus shelters and terminals of the sheet. n Display panels for restaurants hotels department stores banks movie theaters and casinos PRODUCT OFFERING n Menu boards or information directory panels Thickness Sheet Size 0.157 51 x 100 0.197 51 x 120 0.236 0.315 0.394 Custom sizes available upon request. FEATURES n Can utilize either Fluorescent or LED light sources n Edge Lit technology allows for extremely thin frames for light boxes n Can be edge lit from one or two sides depending on sheet size n Weatherability is comparable to standard Plexiglas MC sheet TYpical StanDarD PROPERTIES - Plexiglas G Acrylic Sheet PROPERTIES TEST METHOD UNIT VALUE PHYSICAL hickness for data unless otherwise noted Nominal T in Specific Gravity ASTM D-792 - Rockwell Hardness ASTM D-785 M scale ASTM D-570 a W ter Absorption 24 hr immersion 73F 1 a W ter Absorption Long eT rm Equilibrium 28 days 21F 1.19 ASTM D-570 1 0.236 10 0.2 Poissons Ratio NA 0.8 - 0.35 OPTICAL Refractive Index ND 73F ASTM D-542 Luminous Transmittance - 1.49 ASTM D-103 1 92.0 ASTM D-103 eT nsile Strength maximum ASTM D-638 psi 105 eT nsile Strength yield ASTM D-638 psi 105 eT nsile Elongation ASTM D-638 eT nsile Modulus of Elasticity ASTM D-638 psi Flexural Strength maximum ASTM D-790 psi Flexural Modulus of Elasticity ASTM D-790 psi Haze 1 2.0 MECHANICAL 4.9 450 160 450 Notched Izod Impact 73F 23C ASTM D-256 ft-lb in 0.3 Un-notched Charpy 73F 23C ASTM D-256 ft-lb 0.5x1 section 7.0 THERMAL ASTM D-648 F
