Fascinating Effects with PLEXIGLAS® Textured Sheet RADIANT

PLEXIGLAS® Textured Sheet RADIANT, the new product that Evonik is set to offer from September, is guaranteed to grab attention. For one thing, its textured surface diffuses light in an interesting way. For another, it creates colors that change according to the viewing angle, which is known as the RADIANT effect. Passersby see a colorful play of hues that is set off to particular advantage by the surface texture.

• PLEXIGLAS® Textured Sheet RADIANT: new eye-catching combination of a textured surface with a rainbow effect
• Applications in store fixtures and exhibition booths, futuristic design in bars, lounges and lighting elements
• Textured sheets available with a Honeycomb, Ribbed or Pyramid texture

The special RADIANT surface coating is available on three different textures: Honeycomb, Ribbed and Pyramid. The combination of texture and color effects makes PLEXIGLAS® Textured Sheet RADIANT the center of attention, and equip the material for all applications that are meant to catch the eye, such as store fixtures and exhibition booths.

PLEXIGLAS® Textured Sheet RADIANT also offers a diversity of options for interior design in bars, clubs and lounges. Designers and creative professionals make use of the material’s mirror-like reflections and scintillating colors. Lighting elements made from this new material in ceilings and floors, or in lamps, are particularly striking.

Ordinary daylight is usually enough to trigger the impressive rainbow effect, but the firework of colors is emphasized when PLEXIGLAS® Textured Sheet RADIANT is illuminated or backlit. Depending on the focus of the light source, this gives rise to a myriad of different shades. 

This rainbow, or RADIANT effect, is very popular. The existing PLEXIGLAS® RADIANT grade has already been installed in a large number of applications. The new product that has now been further developed by the Acrylic Polymers Business Line at Evonik builds on this success.
