Extruded acrylic sheets (XT) have optimal thickness tolerances and high visual quality. The sheets have unrivalled resistance to ageing and weathering, are highly transparent, bright, break-proof and shock-resistant as well as being easy to shape and process. Extruded PLEXIGLAS® XT is available in many different colours.
PLEXIGLAS® XT Antimicrobial
PLEXIGLAS® XT Antimicrobial is an extruded sheet material made from acrylic glass. The surface treatment on both sides provides excellent resistance against abrasion and chemicals and contains an antimicrobial formulation that inhibits microbial growth.
Due to the double-sided coating, the sheet is particularly suitable for use as a glass partition for public traffic, since it is very easy to clean and has mutual benefits. With it, confusing the active side during installation is impossible. It is also effective against a wide variety of bacteria and viruses.
PLEXIGLAS®, the world's first acrylic glass (polymethylmethacrylate/PMMA), manufactured by our company, is also valued as a versatile material thanks to its excellent machining properties. Cutting, drilling, grinding, milling and polishing are just a few of the processing steps permitted by our material.
PLEXIGLAS® XT Antimicrobial can be processed like standard PLEXIGLAS®.
The following specific features must be noted for processing of PLEXIGLAS® XT Antimicrobial:
Scraping, wet grinding and polishing are also ideal for PLEXIGLAS® XT Antimicrobial. Flame polishing is not recommended due to the flashing flame. In this case, the flame may cause ruptures and cracks in the surface so that the characteristic properties on abrasion resistance, chemical resistance and antimicrobial effect may be lost in the affected area.
The surface must be prepared before bonding. First of all, the coating must be wet-sanded or milled away for bonding. When removing the coating, make sure that the adhesive surface is flat, clean and free of tension.
Linear bending or thermoforming are not suitable for processing of PLEXIGLAS® XT Antimicrobial. These procedures may damage or peel the coating.
Suitable for cleaning are:
- Lukewarm water with a little dishwashing detergent
- Pure light petrol (white spirit)
- Soft, moist viscose sponge
- Sponge cloth
- Soft, damp, lint-free cloth
- Glove lining fabric
- Shammy Leather
- Shower wiper with soft rubber lip
- Cotton tea towel
Suitable for disinfection are:
- isopropanol (2-propanol)
Abrasive cleaning agents are generally not suitable for cleaning PLEXIGLAS®.
