Acrylic (PMMA) and Polycarbonate (PC) profiles


ATHEX generally extrudes customer-specific profiles. Based upon customer drawings, ATHEX designs and manufactures tools for the production of the desired PMMA / PC profile.

 

The product range essentially covers the following profile types:

  • LED-scattered light and cover profiles for linear lighting systems, with or without clip mechanisms
  • Hollow profiles as luminaire housing (also with internal fins for LED-tray support)

 

Using various combination alternatives, ATHEX can cover a very broad range of customer requirements:

  • Longitudinal prisms on the inside or outside 
  • Types of materials with different light effects, e.g. transparent, light dispersing, opal, satin or colored
  • Co-extrusion to achieve design or functional requirements
  • Material types for other properties: high impact resistance, fire protection requirements, UV resistance, heat resistance, etc.

 

At ATHEX, quality and accuracy are already measured during production with visual and dimensional controls, in addition with functional tests, such as pass tests with customer metal housings or end caps.

 

The ATHEX supply range includes the extrusion of the plastic profile as well as its additional fabrication (such as length cutting, fixing of end caps, milling, drilling, etc.).
