American Acrylic, Manufacture of LumaSite and LumaGuard reinforced acrylic sheets
 
American Acrylic Corporation was incorporated in the spring of 1964. The Company was started to manufacture attractive reinforced acrylic sheets for lighting and decorative applications. Some of the original technology resulted from research and development at the DuPont Company in Wilmington, Delaware.



American Acrylic Corporation manufactures reinforced flat plastic sheets in a compression-molding process. In the manufacturing process, liquid resins and reinforcements are combined and molded into reinforced flat sheets at elevated temperature and pressure.

The offices and manufacturing operation were located in East Farmingdale, New York until 1980. During 1980, the Company moved to larger quarters in West Babylon, New York, and at the same time, installed production equipment that nearly doubled production capacity. Additional capacity, including a production line capable of manufacturing sheets five feet wide, was added in 1985.

Today, American Acrylic Corporation manufactures four distinct product lines:

LUMAsite® Sheets and Diffusers
Reinforced acrylic sheets and diffusers marketed under the LUMAsite® trade name for construction-related applications, including architectural and display lighting, partitions, translucent glazing panels, illuminated walls, window treatments, and sign backgrounds.
