Light guide plate
Plastic sheets you need for creating a light guide plate
Light guide plates are made of clear cast acrylic. Our premium brand Astariglas® is particularly suitable for light guide plates. Astariglas® has 2 major advantages compared to the other A-brands such as Plexiglas®. Astariglas® has an improved optical purity, which means that the light output is 5% higher than if you were to make light guide plates from Plexiglas®. Astariglas® also has an improved thickness tolerance compared to the DIN standard used in the production of cast acrylic. Because light guide plates are often used in a profile, this is a good thing.
When using a light guide plate, a reflector sheet (Primo N084 white) is used behind the light guide plate and a diffuser sheet (Greencast PyraLed4) at the front. You can also find these two records here.
