Architectural Resin Material

What it is

Uniting incredible strength with aesthetic beauty, architectural resin is the material of choice for thousands of products in many industries.

Architectural resin is a polymer created when giant carbon molecules combine chemically. Finished resin sheet exhibits glass-like qualities – clarity, brilliance, transparency, translucence – but at half the weight and up to 60 times the impact resistance. It can be tinted or colored, mirrored or made opaque. A number of coatings can be applied to a sheet or finished part for performance enhancing characteristics such as scratch resistance, anti-fogging, glare reduction and solar reflective.

Because it's a thermoplastic and softens under extremely high temperatures, architectural resin can be formed to virtually any shape. Incredibly durable, architectural resin is a suitable solution over a broad temperature range, and has superior weathering properties compared to other materials.
