The principle of co-extrusion
During co-extrusion, the white PVC substructure and the coloured acrylic glass (PMMA) are permanently fused with one another. Acrylic glass is a high-quality product that has proven its qualities in industrial sectors such as the automotive industry (tail lights) and interior design. The vinyl profile acts as a carrier material, while the thin layer of acrylic glass is responsible for the profiles’ colouring.
A one-of-a-kind surface texture
Brushing the acrylic layer not only produces a standardised grain, but also a fine, semi-matt gloss on the surface. This high-quality finish is unique on the coloured window market.
BENEFITS OF ACRYLCOLOR
The hard acrylic surface is scratch-resistant and insensitive. acrylcolor windows are therefore counted amongst the most resistant of construction elements. Measuring around 0.5 mm, the acrylic layer is thicker than any layer of varnish. Should scratches ever appear on the surface, there is sufficient material left over to buff out the scratch.
Spalling or chipping of the coloured layer is permanently avoided due to the inseparable bond and hard surface.
Acrylic glass is an extremely colour-stable and light-fast material. Car tail lights are clear proof of the properties of this material.
Extremely weather resistant
As part of the external façade, the window profiles in particular are subjected to sunlight as well as weather, environmental and mechanical influences. So that coloured windows retain their aesthetic appeal over the years, profiles capable of withstanding this exposure are required. You are on the safe side with acrylcolor profiles from GEALAN. Over the years, acrylic glass has proven its resistance to the effects of aggressive weather in millions of car tail lights. The same material is also used for the surface of acrylcolor profiles. Windows featuring acrylcolor profiles are therefore robust, even under extreme climate conditions.
The non-porous surface makes acrylcolor windows easy to clean. The elegant brushed effect also makes them insensitive to dirt.
