For over 40 years the creativity and technological know-how offered by Clax Italy and its technical staff have overstepped the boundaries of production and scientific innovation in acrylic production.
The constant evolution of its know-how has enabled Clax Italia to develop special products obtained through casting processes involving specific integrated moulds, large, thick monolithic blocks, standard and special sheets for food, military, medical and scientific use, as well as chemical resins, better known as “glue”, specific for acrylic underwater use. The company’s advanced chemical PMMA plants, fully in compliance with ISO 14001 environmental specifications, fully suits the quality certification that apart from extreme transparency and durability, a strict production quality control system aimed at assuring backward traceability of any single plate and/or block.
As a matter of fact, the company’s advanced chemical acrylics plants, fully in compliance with ISO 14001 environmental certification, guarantee, apart from extreme transparency and durability, a strict production quality control system aimed at assuring backward traceability of any single plate and/or block. These plants and technologies have enabled Clax Italy to launch itself into the methacrylate market as the only world producer of large thick UNstratified blocks.
Nowadays, Clax Italia is one of the world’s leading producer of large cast methacrylate (Perclax®), and PURE cast methacrylate for underwater use (AQuariA®). All our product and production are internationally certified, including PVHO-1.
Perclax® is the name of the pure cast methacrylate
produced by Clax Italia. It is entirely composed of PMMA,
a thermoplastic polymer obtained by bulk-monomer
polymerization by casting processes.
Go To Aquaria
Among the most interesting applications of
Perclax® methacrylate blocks are AQuariA®
Aquarium glasses. Acrylics, chemically processed
and specifically produced for underwater use (PVHO-1)
Continuos monitoring efforts allow Clax R&D dept. to identify strength and weeknes of the acrylic use form the market.
Laboratory facilities usually perform analytical testing of product batches and purchased raw materials. They also supervise the good functioning of processes and measuring instruments. The overall reliability of the results will be susceptible of further internal and external checks.
