    The PETG AR050 satin/satin 4mm is a classic, standard opal sheet from PETG. The high diffusivity allows you to place the sheet close to the light source. This diffuser also offers a good level of light transmission for a sheet with high diffusivity. PETG is the only transparent plastic that is eligible for use in airports.

    The PETG AR050 satin/satin 4mm has a two-sided satin surface, is 4mm thick and has a light transmission of 31%. This is average for a classic opal sheet. The light transmission refers to the amount of light that comes through the diffuser. It is measured on the other side of the light diffuser than where the light source is positioned. The diffusivity, a score that refers to how well the light is scattered, is 0.92. That gives the PETG AR050 satin/satin 4mm a distance factor of 1.1. This means that the distance between the diffuser and the leds needs to be 1.1 times as large as the distance between the led strips or led button cells themselves to get a nice and diffuse light result.

    Standard Diffuser

    The PETG AR050 diffusers are part of our collection with standard diffusers. These diffusers are the classic, 30% light transmission (opal) sheets and fit well with classic light sources and situations with plenty of space between diffuser and light source. They are good diffusers in relationship to their price. Do you need a diffuser that is more efficient and keeps more of the light, please check our professional and advanced light diffusers.

    These professional and advanced diffusers are more efficient than the standard (opal) sheets. Efficiency refers to how well a diffuser performs. It is a measurement that combines the light transmission and the diffusivity. An efficient diffuser costs more to purchase, but earns itself back by saving energy and increasing the light output.

    Material characteristics

    The PETG AR050 is made from PETG. PETG is an extrusion product. Light diffusers from PETG are impact resistant and chemically resistant. They can be vacuum formed, because the material becomes soft at a low temeprature. The material has a minimum amount of thickness tolerance.

    PETG is fire retardant and has the same fire classification as polycarbonate, Bs1d0 according to the European classification EN13501. Because of this classification, PETG may be used in public spaces. And because PETG produces less poisonous fumes than polycarbonate, PETG is the only transparent plastic that is allowed by the fire department at airports.

    PETG is not UV stable in itself. But some of the PETG diffusers in our assortment are developed with a UV protective layer, allowing safe use outside. Please check if the chosen diffuser has UV protection when you plan to use the diffuser outside.

    Stock of the PETG AR050 satin/satin 4mm

    The PETG AR050 in 4mm thickness is in stock in sheet size 3050mm x 2050mm. If you need a smaller size for your application, we gladly offer material cut to size.

    The PETG AR050 satin/satin is also available in the same sheetsize in 3mm thickness.

    Applications for the PETG AR050 satin/satin 4mm

    The PETG AR050 satin/satin 4mm is a diffuser that offers great diffusivity. If you need a diffuser that can be placed close to the light source, this sheet is an excellent choice. And with the minimum amount of thickness tolerance and impact resistance of PETG, this diffuser can be applied in many circumstances. You can use the PETG AR050 for light fixtures, profiles, signing and displays. Barfronts, signing and other esthetic applications are also possible.

    Due to the excellent fire classification, this diffuser may be used in public spaces. And because it barely emits any toxic smoke, PETG is the only transparent plastic that may be used in airports.

    Are you looking for a standard opal sheet made from PETG that offers more light transmission? The PETG AR080 4mm is a great alternative. This sheet needs more distance between the light source and diffuser, but transfers much more of the light.

    For constructive applications like floors, walls and full bars and desks, we recommend a thicker diffuser, like our PyraLed®3 10mm or the PyraLed® OPY3 satin/satin 10mm. These diffusers are made from cast acrylic. Diffusers with these thicknesses are not available in PETG.

    Looking for inspiration? Please check our Acrylic community. You can find many applications with light diffusers. There are also many other applications with acrylic on the platform.

    Mandatory VAT-number

    Dear customer,

    From 1 July 2021, new VAT rules will apply to Dutch businesses. Due to this new legislation, we have decided to only deliver to foreign customers with a VAT number. It is therefore not possible as a private customer to order in our webshop without a VAT number. We will of course be happy to refer you to a reseller.
