Minerals Acrylic Sheet

Acrilex, Inc., producers and distributors of highend custom-colored acrylics, announced its Acriglas® Minerals series line of acrylic sheets. Composed of 20% genuine Muscovite Mica flakes, a naturally occurring mineral, the Minerals series is a greener option ideal for use in cosmetic displays, store fixtures and millwork.

The Minerals series was born from encapsulating Muscovite Mica flakes in an acrylic matrix, transforming the natural raw material into a machineable, formable and weather-resistant product. Offered in an assortment of stunning colors, including Sandstone, Black Galaxy Mica, White Quartz, Indian Amber, Amethyst, Wisteria Mica, Garnet, and Natural Mica, the Minerals series line of acrylic sheets is lighter in weight and easier to fabricate than stone and glass and saves time and money by reducing loss due to breakage.

Available in a variety of sizes and thicknesses ranging from 1/8” to 1/2”, the Minerals series can be drilled, routed, laser cut, glued, formed, hot stamped, and silkscreened like any other acrylic sheet. All sheets can be custom cut or configured to meet the specifications of a wide variety of applications.
