SHINKOLITE™ is the registered trade name of Mitsubishi Chemical's continuous cast acrylic sheet. Known as acrylic resin, this material has excellent weather resistance, stainability, and processability properties, and so is used in many applications such as signage, display, large water tanks, LCDs, and light guide plates. We will continue to leverage these properties and develop new products such as the flame-retardant and impact-resistant grades of SHINKOLITE. It is our goal to provide environmentally friendly products that make society safer and help people to have more comfortable and prosperous lives.
SHINKOLITE™ L/DX/LXContinuous Cast Acrylic Sheet
SHINKOLITE™ L, DX, and LX have high consistency uniform thickness, which helps ensure that finished products made with SHINKOLITE™ are both beautiful and superior in quality every time.
- Displays, etc.
SHINKOLITE™ MRHard-coated Acrylic Sheet
In addition to the typical SHINKOLITE™ properties of excellent translucency, processability, and stronger against breakage than glass, SHINKOLITE™ MR is also significantly resistant to scratches.
- Various electronic display protection sheets
- Various building materials
SHINKOLITE™ PXSanitary Ware Grade
In comparison with normal SHINKOLITE™ products, SHINKOLITE™ PX can be formed over a wider range of temperatures. The elongation phase of the forming process is less dependent on temperature. This enables us to produce sheets with a more uniform thickness. Bondable with FRP, this grade of product is optimal for sanitary applications, such as bathtubs and sinks, that require a backup.
- Wash basins
SHINKOLITE™ FRFlame-retardant Acrylic Sheet
In addition to the properties of continuous cast acrylic sheets, this product is self-extinguishing such that any flame will die if this material catches fire.
- Gasoline stand signs such as pole signs and canopy signs
- Store signs such as facade signs and billboards
- Display boards used in train stations, airports, and other public facilities
SHINKOLITE™ DX-IRImpact-resistant Acrylic Sheet
Because SHINKOLITE™ DX-IR is manufactured with the continuous cast process, this product has approximately 300% better resistance to impact than typical acrylic sheets. It also has better heat resistance and mechanical properties than impact-resistant extruded acrylic sheets.
- Store signs
- Elevators, stair handrails, and partitions
- Exterior panels for ticket and vending machines
