Versato® Crystal is a 15mm transparent edge sheet made of cast acrylic (plexiglas®/pmma). The special thing about this Crystal edge sheet is that the colouring of the sheet is so small that the material hardly seems coloured except for the edge! Due to the light colouring of the sheet, the colour is especially visible in the edges, which results in a beautiful line. The Crystal edge collection is made of cast acrylic, making this material colour-stable, UV-resistant, easy to fabricate, lightweight compared to glass and fully recyclable. If damaged, the surface can be easily and quickly repaired by sanding and polishing – perfect for use as a display case, for example.
PyraSied has the Versato® Crystal on stock in eight different colours that are only visible in the edge. The colour is at its best when the edges are polished and shiny. The sheets are standard available in 15 mm with a high-gloss surface. This material can be ordered cut to size via our webshop. The maximum sheet size of Versato® Crystal is 3020x2030mm.
We will gradually replace our stock of standard cast plexiglass with a recycled variant (Greencast®). The price and quality are the same, but it is a more sustainable alternative. Crystal acrylic can already be ordered as Greencast® 100% recycled acrylic with a minimum order quantity. For more information about Greencast® recycled acrylic, please refer to our category page.
We have samples available in all colours. You can also order a complete sample chain with the entire collection. If you want a different colour or thickness, we can easily have this produced for you. The minimum order quantity is 5 full sheets with the size of 3020x2030mm up to a thickness of 20mm. The delivery time of a special production is usually 4 weeks. Ask our Sales & Support department (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
Because of the coloured lining of this sheet, it is perfect to be used as wall presentations, displays, cabinets and furniture. For inspiration, please take a look at our Acrylic Community.
Versato® Crystal can be easily fabricated by any company or person with certain experience in fabricating acrylic. This means sawing, milling, laser-cutting, warm bending, bonding, drilling, faceting, polishing, sanding and printing. The material – it is a thermoplastic – can be made soft with heat and then bent or vacuum formed. For more information about fabricating acrylics, please go to our fabrication page.

Acrylic (pmma) is the plastic that is also known as PLEXIGLAS®. Our own brand of acrylic is called Versato®. Acrylic is in the basis 100% colourless, light weight, rigid, practically unbreakable, easy to fabricate and is therefore better than glass in some respects. Acrylic is weather proof, UV stable and does not yellow.
There are two main types of acrylic, cast (GS) and extruded (XT) acrylic. An advantage of cast acrylic is that it is easy to produce in small quantities, which offers flexibility. Extruded acrylic has the advantage that it hardly knows any thickness tolerance.
Acrylic is optically more pure than polycarbonate. Polycarbonate, on the other hand, is much more impact-resistant than acrylic, but yellows faster.
The 15 mm Versato® Crystal edge sheet – especially when in bright light – generates a unique look and feel as the elegant colour of the material only really shows at the laser cut edges. The thickness of the sheets also results in a solid, durable and lasting piece of furniture.
