Simply Plastics Launches the PERSPEX®re Range
Published on: 17/01/2023
PERSPEX®re is a new product made from the depolymerisation of acrylic sheets and liquid waste. The manufacturing process uses 100% recycled methyl methacrylate (rMMA) which reduces waste and CO2, and produces an environmentally-friendly product which has high optical transparency, durability and UV stability.
The launch of this 100% recycled cast acrylic product is timely. It will help to meet the increasing demand in the market from a wide range of end-users for high quality recycled substrates which have a long lifespan.
Now in Stock at Simply Plastics
We're very pleased to announce that we can now supply our customers with the PERSPEX®re range
Simply Plastics Director Andrew Haydon said: "As a company, one of our key objectives is to stock products for our customers which are environmentally friendly. Many of our customers have told us that they have a preference for using recycled acrylics in their projects, but until now such products have not been widely available. The introduction of PERSPEX®re is a real game-changer because it not only helps meet a market need but is also beneficial for the environment."
A Wide Range of Colours and Applications
With its high optical transparency, durability and UV stability, PERSPEX®re has a very wide range of applications. It can be used in shop fit-out projects, lighting projects, signage, retail sales displays, counters, screens, marine applications and much more besides – even artworks and high quality items of furniture. Over time it will maintain its inherent properties, just as if it had been produced with virgin acrylics.
PERSPEX®re is currently available in clear, opal, dense white and black sheets, however for larger projects it can be colour matched to virtually any colour. A colour matching service is available across all of our coloured, fluorescent and tinted colour ranges.
10 Year Product Warranty
PERSPEX®re comes with a 10 year external warranty which guarantees the product against the effects of UV rays and against changes in its optical and mechanical properties. This makes it a truly beneficial sustainable product over the long term.
