Metallics – a huge range of metallic colours in acrylic that are thermoformable. Manufactured in 4 different grades – standard metallic’s, matt 1 side, IRO – a guaranteed metallic for external use and the Iridis or Pearlescent range.

The Metallic range is however available in colours such as Black, Copper, Titanium etc and offers the designer the ability to provide eye catching displays with a degree of originality.
