19 May PLEXIGLAS® – 10 Year Guarantee
PLEXIGLAS® will not yellow! Guarantee Statement
Evonik® Industries guarantee that clear-transparent solid sheets marketed under the PLEXIGLAS® trademark will show no yellowing and will retain a high level of light transmission for 10 years.
Many plastics yellow visibly over time. PLEXIGLAS® does not. Even after 10 years, the absolute yellowness indices are among the lowest possible for plastics at the present time. We give you our guarantee that sunlight will not visibly change the appearance, brilliance and surface of clear-transparent PLEXIGLAS® in the course of 10 years.
Many plastics lose a considerable portion of their light transmission during use. Sheets may become darker. PLEXIGLAS® does not. Depending on material grade and region, clear-transparent sheets still retain up to 90% light transmission after 10 years of service life. This is one of the best transmission levels offered by any plastic.
Hardly Any Smoke
Upon combustion, many plastics produce thick smoke and/or toxic gases that may be very dangerous to human health. PLEXIGLAS® does not. PLEXIGLAS® in Clear grade and in standard colors burns almost without smoke and forms no toxic or corrosive gases. In the event of fire, PLEXIGLAS® may therefore help to protect people and property.
