Worktops and surfaces
Acrylic is a high performance, extremely hardwearing material that is resistant to UV light and chemicals yet warm to the touch and easy to mould, thermoform and fabricate into solid sheet and shapes, which makes it a flexible solution for solid surfaces for both domestic and contract installations. The pure, colourless nature of Lucite® Liquid Acrylic Resins makes them an ideal base for dyes and fillers to give designers creative freedom. Our branded acrylic composites for the Asia Pacific region, Asterite® and Avron®, are pre-formulated liquid dispersions, which are easily cast into complex shapes in a variety of colours and effects that appeal to designers and consumers alike.
