Quinn Plastics launches QUINN ACRYL, a highly transparent, amorphous thermoplastic resin based on polymethyl methacrylate. The company will offer the resin in three different grades: high stiffness (standard), high viscosity and impact-modified grades. Better known for it's sheet products, Quinn Plastics will enter the market for injection moulding supplies, with a proven track record in acrylics technology and development.

The extensive product range contains high-stiffness, standard grades with various levels of heat resistance and flow characteristics for injection moulding. The high viscosity (E) grades are excellent for extrusion applications. The impact-modified grades, with a range of melt viscosities and the right balance of toughness and stiffness, have the best resistance to environmental stress cracking.

'It is very exciting to see Quinn Plastics entering a new market segment, which compliments our current sheet sales strategy. Although we may be a smaller player in this area we are very flexible in production and extremely confident in our quality of product. With the extended product range, as in our core plastic sheet markets, we will continue to offer the 'best fit' solutions to users', says Tom Nulty, General Manager of Quinn Plastics.

Due to its optical and technical properties, QUINN ACRYL is suitable for a wide range of applications. Lenses for signalling lamps in the automotive industry are made of QUINN ACRYL, whilst rod, tube and lighting profiles are seen as target markets. Other applications are foreseen in the electrical, household, medical and lighting environments.
