A new thermoformable PC sheet from Altuglas International, Philadelphia, reportedly offers exceptional light diffusion and weathering performance in signage. Tuffak XL is said to eliminate hot spots and to achieve an even glow to hide light sources. High light transmission reduces power requirements, and a built-in UV barrier provides long-term yellowing resistance and better weathering than competitive PC sheet. Low-angle scattering improvements are said to disperse light efficiently for consistent brightness at any viewing angle. Standard thicknesses are 0.093 and 0.236 in. and widths are up to 100 in., mostly in white and clear. (800) 523-7500 • www.plexiglas.com
