PET

This polymer is a major development in the world of plastic sheets.
PET sheets have an excellent fire resistance (BS476: Part 7: Class 1Y) and they are self-extinguishing. They are safe to use with foodstuffs and are highly resistant to chemical agents and weathering. They save time and energy since they do not require pre-drying and can be quickly thermoformed.
These sheets have a wide range of applications, from roof domes, roof lights and greenhouse glazing, to bus shelters and vandal proof glazing, signs, displays, trays and vending machine facials.
An important new feature of certain thicknesses is the availability of the product on rolls.
Different colours, or anti-UV treatment are available on demand.

PET is 100 % recyclable.

Anti-glare finish:

  • This sheet has an anti-glare finish. This property makes it especially suitable for protecting all types of photographs, paintings, diplomas, posters,...
  • A smooth crystal product with anti-fading protection (not anti-glare) is available on demand.
  • Main advantages of Arraglass compared to glass: Anti-reflection, Impact resistant, Lightweight with good rigidity, Easy to handle

The ultraviolet radiation from the sun causes the image's colours to fade.
Exposure with anti-glare finish
The anti-fading treatment of the sheets preserves the vividness of the colours almost like the original image.
