For outdoor applications, Acrylite Plus zdf impact light diffusing acrylic molding and extrusion compound offers superior light diffusion, good outdoor durability and three times more impact strength than standard acrylic.

Produced by Cyro, the material allows higher light transmittance and output ratios than conventional pigment-diffusion polymers. The high-level light transmittance is achieved by incorporating high molecular weight polymer beads with a different refractive index into the acrylic. The end result is an even distribution of light through the acrylic and a 30 percent greater light transmittance compared with white pigmented light-diffusing acrylics.
