    The Satinglas 51100 satin/satin 5mm is a sharply priced light diffuser, made from cast acrylic. It offers an excellent balance between high light transmission and good diffusivity.

    The Satinglas 51100 satin/satin 5mm has a two-sided satin surface. The diffuser is 5mm thick and has a light transmission of 66%. 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 0.49. That gives the Satinglas 51100 5mm a distance factor of 2.1. This means that the distance between the diffuser and the leds needs to be 2.1 times larger than the distance between the led strips or led button cells themselves to get a nice and diffuse light result.

    Standard diffuser

    The Satinglas 51100 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 Satinglas 51100 is made from cast acrylic. Light diffusers from cast acrylic have the best light technical properties and are optically clear, UV-stable and colourfast. Because of this, the diffusers can be used inside and outside and the colour will not be influenced by the sun. The fire classification of cast acrylic is E according to fire norm EN 13501. This is the European (EU) classification.

    Cast acrylic can be produced in smaller batches relatively easy. This allows us to offer the broadest collection of thicknesses and types in cast acrylic.

    The Satinglas 51100 with a two-sided satin surface in 5mm thickness is in stock in sheet size 3050mm x 2030mm. If you need a smaller size for your application, we gladly offer material cut to size.

    Applications for the Satinglas 51100 satin/satin 5mm

    If you are looking for a standard diffuser with an excellent balance between a high level of light transmission and good diffusivity, the Satinglas 51100 collection is a great choice. And since cast acrylic has excellent light technical properties, this diffuser can be used in many circumstances. You can use the 5mm version of the Satinglas 51100 with two-sided satin surface for barfronts, signing, decors, displays and other esthetic applications. Because cast acrylic is UV stable and the colour is not affected by sunlight, you can safely apply it inside and outside.

    For constructive applications, like floors, walls and full bars- and desks, a thicker version of the Satinglas 51100 is more suited, like the 10mm or 15mm version.

    Are you looking for a standard diffuser with a higher level of light transmission? Then the Satinglas 51000 clear satin/satin 5mm is a good alternative. This sheet does not contain any opal pigment, giving it a high level of light transmission. If you have enough space available between the light diffuser and the leds, the Satinglas 51000 is a great diffuser that loses a minimum amount of light.

    The PyraLed®4 in 3mm and 4mm have a satinated surface, just like the Satinglas 51100, but use a higher quality opal pigment. This improves the efficiency of the diffuser and improves the amount of light transmitted.

    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.

    Fabricating the Satinglas 51100 satin/satin 5mm

    Diffusers made from cast acrylic contain less tension than diffusers from extruded acrylic. The Satinglas 51100 is made from cast acrylic and can be fabricated easily.

    PyraSied has more than 30 years of experience in fabricating acrylic and other plastics. With our excellently equipped workshop – where high-tech machinery and traditional craftsmanship ensure high quality – we can supply diffusers made to size.
