Our opal and satin tubes are beautiful to be used as lighting fixtures. The light is spread evenly.
Cast acrylic tubes are optically pure and is therefore perfect to be used in certain production machines.
When you bond a clear cast acrylic tube with a fluor sheet, you will get a special and beautiful effect. Acrylic guides the yellow fluor colour which is especially visible in the edges. Even the water gets a fluor tint.
Cast acrylic tubes are optically pure and therefore perfect to be used as machine reactors, provided with drilling holes and flanges.
Round rod Ghost is a light guide round rod that is originally transparent an guides the light up to a length of 1 meter.
Tubes and rods can be ordered per full length. We can cut the full length of the tube or rod to your own measurements with a minimum length of 100mm.
A tube is hollow, a rod is massive.
Acrylic is optically more pure than polycarbonate. Polycarbonate, on the other hand, is much more impact-resistant than acrylic, but yellows faster.
Acrylic GS is optically slightly purer than XT tubes, due to the extrusion process with which XT tubes are produced. XT tubes are more cost-effective than GS because of this production process. GS tubes are available in larger diameters and XT tubes are available in smaller diameters.
XT: Diameters 20-250 mm
GS: diameters 40-610 mm
Acrylic tubes are reasonably UV stable and weather proof, but are not designed for long term outdoor applications. They will yellow after a while.
Yes, We can make cast acrylic tubes in colour for you from 20 kg.
Acrylic tubes are optically very pure and is therefore perfect to be used as a reactor. PyraSied can make reactors cut to size, serially and one-offs.
LumenUs is an interactive light construction that shows how different parts can work together to form a unity. It is an impressive spectacle of acrylic satin tubes and steel cables that keep each other in balance. The lighting and accompanying soundscape respond to impulses that the audience gives. Thus the actions of the public are a dynamic and lively work of art. Earlier, Lumenus was already presented at GLOW Eindhoven, Lowlands and festival Into the Woods.
PyraSied has the largest stock of acrylic and polycarbonate tubes and round, square and triangular rods in the Benelux. All tubes and rods can be ordered per full length of 2000mm. If desired, we can cut the tubes and rods to size with a minimum length of 100 mm. Use our saw module in the webshop for this.
Acrylic tubes and rods are optically pure, strong, and UV-resistant. Transparent tubes made of this plastic are widely used for decorative applications in stand- and exhibition construction, furniture/interior construction, and technical applications such as reactors. PyraSied has a standard stock of acrylic tubes and rods in Versato® cast acrylic and Primo® extruded acrylic. Cast (GS) acrylic is optically purer than extruded (XT) acrylic. XT acrylic, on the other hand, is relatively slightly cheaper.
Acrylic tubes can be ordered in different types: clear/transparent, recycled transparent, opal and satin.
Polycarbonate tubes and rods (Fuerto®) are extremely impact resistant, they are 250 times stronger than glass! It is extruded from normal standard granulate and is not provided with a UV protective layer. Polycarbonate tubes and rods are mainly used for technical applications due to their impact-resistant character. Particularly in lighting as shielding around light sources, but also in the process industry. Polycarbonate is optically less pure compared to acrylic tubes and rods.
Polycarbonate tubes can be ordered in different types: clear/transparent and satin.
You can easily fabricate tubes and rods: sawing, milling, gluing, drilling, polishing, sanding, and lettering. Feel free to contact our plastic specialists for more information about fabricating tubes and rods.
Well-known brand names of acrylic are Versato®, Primo® Astariglas®, PLEXIGLAS® and Perspex®. Fuerto®, Lexan® and Makrolon® are well-known brand names of polycarbonate.
