A picture of ACRYPLEN(acrylic film).

We have been engaged since 1975 in the development, manufacture, and sale of acrylic (PMMA) films through a combination of our unique in-house polymer design and thin film forming technologies.
ACRYPLEN (acrylic film) features the excellent transparency, weatherability, suitability for heat-molding and lamination processing. In addition, it has outstanding UV protection, making it ideal for use as a construction material, a paint-alternative, and a retro reflective material, as well as for a wide range of applications in the field of optical engineering.
Mitsubishi Chemical is a pioneer in the development of acrylic films, and the Company’s lineup encompasses products with a wide variety of thicknesses, widths, and differing degrees of flexibility/rigidity.

Characteristics of ACRYPLEN (acrylic film)

[Close]

High transparency

ACRYPLEN (acrylic film) has superior optical qualities, being one of the most transparent acrylic film yet developed, with a total transmission of 93% as well as a low Haze value.

Superior weatherability

ACRYPLEN (acrylic film) is not only proud of the excellent weatherability, it protects substrate by blocking UV ray being laminated on varies of other plastics.

Effect of Increasing Weather Resistance with ACRYPLEN

Test sample : Decoration sheet(woodgrain print)
Condition of Xenon-weather : Internal (reference ISO4892-2 Method A)

Easy processing

ACRYPLEN (acrylic film) can be used for the heat lamination of plastic sheets and films made primarily of polycarbonates, polyvinyl chloride (PVC), and acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) resins. All these sheets and films can be processed in various ways, including vacuum molding and the wrapping process.
ACRYPLEN’s excellent heat moldability makes it perfect for both in-mold lamination and film insert molding.

Applications

[Close]

Construction materials

The application example of construction material.

Used as the top film in film-laminated construction materials such as PVC decorative sheet, ACRYPLEN (acrylic film) prevents discoloring and deterioration of the underlying material thanks to its UV-protection capability, thereby prolonging the life of exterior materials. Where required, the use of Mitsubishi Chemical’s proprietary matte-finished film gives the material serenity and an appealing design.
The range of applications for ACRYPLEN(acrylic film) is extremely wide, covering garden furniture, plastic imitation bamboo fences, corrugated plastic panels, window frames, front doors, and so on.
Recommended grades: HBS006H, HBS027 (matte finish), FBS007 (fluorine / acrylic)

Paint alternative

The application example of Paint alternative.

ACRYPLEN(acrylic film)’s high transparency makes it perfect for use as a laminate on molded plastic materials, and it is particularly suited to cases where an attractive appearance is important. By using film insert (injection) molding process, customers can retain completely paint like finish on their product without painting process which possibly causes environmental problem.
As a paint-alternative, ACRYPLEN (acrylic film) boasts a surface hardness on the pencil hardness scale, a superior surface smoothness making it suitable for printing, and excellent heat moldability. Thanks to these qualities, ACRYPLEN (acrylic film) is ideal for use as a top laminate for vehicle interiors and exteriors, consumer electronics, telecommunications equipment, and bathroom fittings.
Recommended grades: HBA007P (easy molding grade), HBS010P (molding whitening-resistant grade),FBA015(molding whitening-resistant grade, fluorine/acrylic)

Retro-reflective material

The color film for retro-reflective material. (ACRYPLEN)

Thanks to its excellent weatherability and colorability, ACRYPLEN (acrylic film)  is also highly suitable for use as a high-luminance, reflective cover film for retro-reflective materials for traffic signs. Recently, because of its ability to protect glossy coloring, it has been in popular use as an inkjet print overlay for external advertising displays (shop signs and so on).
