ACRYLITE SuPure acrylic polymer Delivers Clean Molding & Superior Clarity
For Optical & Automotive Applications

 

 

Rockaway, NJ – January 18, 2005 – Exceptional clarity for optical and automotive applications is now easily achieved with CYRO Industries’ new ACRYLITE SuPure™ acrylic polymer. ACRYLITE SuPure polymers are free of material defects, dust and contaminants resulting in visibly pure-molded parts and reduced processing defects. The SuPure acrylic polymer system combines proprietary manufacturing technology along with state-of-the-art packaging to ensure polymers are free of foreign materials from manufacturing to the point-of-use in customer facilities. ACRYLITE SuPure polymers are ideal for optical lenses and visual applications offering several processing and durability advantages over optical glass.

Parts molded from ACRYLITE SuPure polymer have better clarity than optical glass with greater durability and ease of manufacturing for higher throughput and lower costs. Acrylic is extremely weatherable, showing no adverse effects to UV light for longer part life.

“The SuPure acrylic polymer system is CYRO’s answer to high-end ultra-clean optical and automotive molding applications requiring the utmost purity,” remarks Cynthia Zey, Marketing Manager, ACRYLITE®/ACRYLITE PLUS®, CYRO Industries

The ACRYLITE SuPure proprietary purification process incorporates the EverPure™ Packaging system to ensure that optimal product purity and quality are delivered to the customer. SuPure polymer is loaded into woven polymer bulk packaging to ensure the product remains free of contaminants during shipping. For the best in clean molding processes, SuPure polymers should be unloaded at customer facilities using a closed system FLEXICON® bulk bag discharger, carrying the polymer into feed systems with minimal handling and outside contact. EverPure woven polymer bags eliminate dust and fibers normally contracted through corrugated container packaging. Fewer visible defects in molded parts result in reduced scrap and higher yields for molders and processors.

Another packaging option offered is PureGuard™ packaging which eliminates dust and contaminants with a heat-sealed chimney liner system.

SuPure acrylic polymers are available in a number of different grades to offer high heat resistance, excellent flow properties, and high molecular weight for stiffer polymers.

Headquartered in Rockaway, NJ, CYRO Industries is the innovative supplier of specialty acrylic solutions to existing and emerging markets in the Americas. Formed in 1976 as a joint partnership between Cytec Industries and Röhm GmbH & Co., KG, a subsidiary of Degussa AG, CYRO has broad technological and global resources to respond to market demands.
