Acrylic Backing

Acrylic backing application is used to reinforce acrylic sheets, mainly for acrylic bath tubs. Polipol 341-TA-White with 30% or 40% filler (calcite) content has excellent adhesion on acrylic sheets. Polipol 342-TA-D40-White is recommended for ABS sheet backing applications. 

Polipol 341-TA-D40-White, used in shower trays and bases, has excellent adhesion to acrylic sheets with very good fiber wet-out.

Acrylic Vacuum Forming Application

1- Heat acrylic sheet to softening point. 

2- Mount soft sheet on the mold and apply vacuum pressure to get the desired shape. 

3- Demold the sheet and cool down. 

Note: In order to have uniform thickness through out the sheet, it is important to have a good mold designed for vacuuming. 

Acrylic Vacuum Forming Application

1- Incorporate desired amount of filler into Polipol 341-TA White and connect to spray up machine.

2- Adjust peroxide ratio and pressure of the gun according to application environment.

3- Adjust chopper fiber/resin ratio.

4- Spray catalyzed resin with chopped glassfibers on the sheet.

5- It is possible to insert hardboards at this stage if needed.

6- Spray more catalyzed resin with chopped glassfibers.

7- Release trapped air with the help of a roller and brush.

8- Reinforced acrylic sheets are cured in curing oven at temperatures between 40-50°C.

9- After curing, trim the edges and mount accessories.
