INEOS Acrylics Inc. has introduced its new higher molecular weight extruded acrylic sheet called Lucite® CPX.

"We're very proud of this new product. Lucite CPX is definitely the next generation of acrylic sheet," said Alan Ledger, sales and marketing manager at INEOS Acrylics. "A global team effort went into the research and development of this product and the result is that we have a product that will provide fabricators and thermoformers with a greater degree of usability and reliability."

Ledger said fabricators and thermoformers making products used in retail jewelry and clothing displays will be able to have an even greater degree of confidence in the performance and longevity of their products because Lucite CPX is more forgiving in the fabricating process.

"Lucite CPX will heat and line-bend better and has a greater degree of resistance to crazing," said Ledger.

"Other fabricated displays such as skylights, as well as museum and artifact vitrines will be stronger, more durable and even better suited for long-term use when made with Lucite CPX," said AI Brown, technical service manager at INEOS Acrylics and Lucite CPX R&D team member.

This higher molecular weight extruded acrylic sheet was developed within the confines of INEOS Acrylics' unique proprietary polymer technology.
