LUMAsite® is American Acrylic's trademark for fiberglass-reinforced acrylic panels, and for fiberglass-reinforced acrylic-modified polyester panels.
These shatterproof sheets combine the attractive appearance and long term outdoor durability of cast acrylic with the strength and translucent beauty of the glass fibers. Whites and colors intended for signs and displays have these fibers to impart strength and durability, but they are not visible.
