about

Perclax® is the name of the cast methacrylate produced by Clax Italia. It is entirely composed of PMMA, a thermoplastic polymer obtained by bulk-monomer polymerization by casting processes.

Based on the most innovative and advanced technologies, Clax Italia’s Perclax® stands out for its outstanding optical properties, extreme purity, transparency, lightness, toughness and excellent light, aging, weathering and chemical reagent resistance, as well as for the rigorous

checks systematically performed on thickness tolerances.

It can be opaque or transparent, colourless or coloured.

Clax Italia’s standard production line mainly includes: Plates and flat and/or curved Blocks(thin and large monolithic blocks), Bars and Pipes.

They can be employed in a variety of uses, including roofing and building construction, finishing

and furnishing, objects, noise barriers and in many other fields such as the food, energetic, scientific, military and medical ones.

AQuariA® Aquarium glasses represent one of the most interesting applications of the above-mentioned blocks.

According to a wide array of artistic, hand-crafted and industrial production processes, PMMA plates can be processed or thermoformed.

production

Perclax® block production consists of pure cast methacrylate monolithic blocks.
Renowned for their extreme purity, they also stand out for their brightness, transparency,
lightness and aging resistance.
They are produced up to the highest (unstratified) thicknesses, with a high molecular
weight.

They can be opaque or transparent, colourless or coloured with both the smooth surfaces
and/or a frozen, orange peel, anti-glare, stardust, sandblasted and fluorescent surface.
They can also encompass objects within their thickness.
Available in monolithic standard production measures and/or cut-to-size products, with
polished edge on demand, Perclax® blocks provide excellent physical and chemical
properties and a high transparency index, with a minimum of transmitted light greater than
or equal to 92%.
Perclax® blocks are constantly monitored throughout all production stages ending with an
annealing process, thanks to which complete polymerization and less internal material
tensions are guaranteed.
