Acrylite® OP2 is
ACRYLITE® OP-2 acrylic sheet filters out 98% of the UV-range of light (200-400 nanometers) and offers excellent light transmission in the visible range between 400 and 700 nanometers. ACRYLITE® OP-2 sheet’s proprietary technology eliminates the objectionable “yellow tint” evident in other UV-filtering products. Easily fabricated, it can be thermoformed, cold-formed, screen printed and painted.

ACRYLITE® OP-1 acrylic sheet is a
UV transmitting, cell cast sheet that is usually used for instrument
applications. It contains no additives or stabilizers and, therefore,
should not be used in applications where resistance to degradation from
long term exposure to UV light is an issue.
ACRYLITE® OP-4 acrylic sheet it a UV transmitting, cell cast sheet. The difference between ACRYLITE® OP-4 sheet and ACRYLITE® OP-1 sheet is that ACRYLITE® OP-4 sheet contains thermal stabilizers, making it more more suitable for applications requiring resistance to degradation from long term exposure to UV light. ACRYLITE® OP-4 is used in appliations such as sun tanning beds and terreriums. It transmits 70 percent or more of the available ultra-violet light in the 340 nanometer range.
