Applications of transparent plastics: security glazing, strip curtains in industry, protective caps, gauge glasses, sight glasses, LED lighting and transparent partition walls . Note that transparent does not always mean that a material is also 100% transparent or crystal clear.
Transparent plastics are also often used with colored or mirror finishes for “attractive” applications. Plastics are available in all kinds of colors, opal shades, LED quality, in high gloss, satin or matt, in transparent colors, in bronze, gold or silver mirror and in very special versions. These materials are used as a basis for texts (lettering), displays, interior parts, mirrors, boat windows, furniture, letters, art objects and countless more applications.
