Geel (Belgium), October 24, 2013 – Polycasa (formerly Quinn Plastics), the largest non-integrated manufacturer of plastic sheet, today announced an extension to its range of Polycasa CAST polymethylmethacrylate sheets. Polycasa CAST Argenta is a unique dual-surface acrylic sheet that is ideal for innovative creative concepts in high-end design applications such as luxury POP displays, interior design (shops, restaurants, casinos, museums etc.), exhibitions, furniture, advertising, lighting, and thermoformed pieces.
Polycasa CAST Argenta is currently the only dual-surface acrylic sheet on the market with similar features. Its upper surface is sparkling and coloured, with gloss and a depth effect; the other surface is metallic silver with an opaque appearance.
“We are very excited about our new Polycasa CAST Argenta range of dual-surface acrylic sheets,” says Agnes Sanchez, Product Manager for the Polycasa CAST range. “Designers are constantly on the look-out for new materials to make their designs stand out. Polycasa CAST Argenta’s unique dual-surface sparkling/opaque appearance, wide range of special colours, intriguing depth effect, and easy thermoformability, will give designers a new material to make revolutionary and innovative designs to attract the attention of consumers.”
Polycasa CAST Argenta is almost opaque in flat application, but can be easily thermoformed into any shape, thus increasing light transmission to 30-50 per cent. Its inner composition and production process give it a certain pigment orientation, resulting in colours with different colour shades. The colour intensity of the thermoformed piece varies depending on the thermoformed shape.
