cast (GS), translucent, satiny/glossy, both sides with protective film, 49 % light transmission (reference value at 3 mm thickness)
Satined acrylic is a material made for lighting. Its exquisite finely roughed surface cannot be seen through but still transmits more light than a white-translucent ACRYLIC GLASS SHEET. It also reflects a lot less light, which means that when used in lamp construction the greater part of the lamp’s light finds its way into the surroundings.
The firm Degussa (Röhm) has introduced into the market a collection of cast acrylic glasses under the name “Plexiglas Satinice” which especially stand out because of their semi-gloss satined surfaces. The material is offered in two different surface combinations: glossy/satined (SC) and double-sided satined (DC). The matte-finished surface doesn’t easily scratch and fingerprints do not show up on it.
The matte-finished surface makes Plexiglas Satinice an excellent choice for a multitude of creative uses. It is often used at trade shows or in model making (e.g. closet doors), for room dividers or displays, in illuminated advertising or in the production of lighting fixtures. When making a lamp one must keep in mind that it is not only the separation distance from the light source but even more the ventilation of the lamp that is important in regards to overheating. To achieve this, you must make sure that the hot air has an upward escape route.
The matte-finished surface of Plexiglas Satinice SC and DC remain intact during heated deformation. On top of that, it can be sawn, bored, milled, laser-cut and glued just like normal acrylic GS.
