Evonik is investing double-digit million euros in a new production plant for high quality flat films made from multi-layer polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA).

The plant is scheduled to supply the initial commercial film batches by the end of 2018.

"With the investment we have now approved, we are strengthening our role as innovation leader for acrylic-based technologies and products," said Martin Krämer, Head of the Acrylic Products Business Line.

The plant will produce extremely wide films with a previously unachieved number of layers, according to Krämer.

Multi-layered PMMA films are used in medical technology, window and façade construction, and in the graphics industry.

As recently as mid-January, Evonik presented façade elements made from fiberglass plates equipped with a top layer made of PLEXIGLAS film at the BAU 2017 tradeshow. The thermoset resin and glass fibers are protected in such a way that the plates also have an aesthetically pleasing and brilliant appearance.

"With the new multi-layer films, we can ensure the longevity of such exterior components for façades," said Michael Enders, Head of Film Activities at Acrylic Products, Evonik.

The new plant will also allow completely new film compositions. "Wider multi-layer PMMA films allow particularly long-lasting and sustainable products and offer our customers new design and processing possibilities," he added.
