Acrylic sheet is often referred to in Australia as Perspex which has become its generic description. Perspex from Lucite is in fact an internationally renowned brand of acrylic sheet which is recognised for its quality and extensive product range.
Perspex is a trademark first registered in 1934. Its first application was for the Spitfire (fighter plane) panel canopies. Today Perspex stands for innovation and quality in acrylic. Perspex has always been at the forefront of innovative design-with each decade in its development demonstrating a further step in making Perspex what it is today.
An extensive range of sheet sizes and thicknesses and an increased choice of colours, tints, surface textures and special effect products meant that Perspex was ideally suited to take a place in the emerging global branding and corporate imaging culture that was a feature of the 80's and increasingly dominates today's global environment.
When it comes to acrylic in the corporate signage and imaging sector, Perspex has been first choice among leading brands for many years. Perspex solutions can be colour-matched to any conceivable shade, perform exceptionally well in all weather conditions and have excellent light transmission qualities.
These performance factors make it the preferred choice for multi-national brands that want to project their corporate and brand identities precisely and consistently across regions over a long period of time.
