    Polycarbonate and PETG

    Coated PETG in barfronts Hermitage

    For the restaurant of the Hermitage, we have coated the PETG sheets because of the strict fire security rules. PETG is the most fire safe transparent plastic there is.

    Circle of Light – Amsterdam Light Festival

    For this art object is made use of polycarbonate light diffusers because they are hufterproof. Architect Rob van Houten chose the advanced diffuser Makrolon DX because this diffuser has a high light transmission and makes it beautifully diffuse.
