After investing millions of dollars in state-of-the-art technology, CYRO Industries (Rockaway, NJ) has introduced a "new generation" of abrasion-resistant acrylic sheet. The product, which incorporates 3M Co.'s 906 coating, features "unsurpassed quality and optics, with 40 times the mar resistance of uncoated sheet," according CYRO's Elizabeth A. DiGiose. In addition, the Acrylite(reg) AR sheet resists chemicals, is easy to fabricate, weighs 50% less than glass, and has more impact strength than glass. Most glass cleaners can be used to clean the sheet without harm. These qualities, says DiGiose, make the sheet ideal for applications subjected to heavy public contact and cleaning, including transportation and architectural glazing, hockey rinks/sports arenas, electronic display screens, store fixtures, security glazing FAX (973) 442-6117.
