VITROFLEX AQUARIUM is a material with high resistance to impact, specially designed for the construction of elements intended to contain water such as aquariums, swimming pools and fish tanks, as well as underwater elements such as ship bottoms and submarine windows.
It offers high clarity and extremely high optical quality from 30mm thick. It is an ideal material for applications where good visibility is important. In addition, its great resistance to aging makes it an excellent product for outdoor use, remaining practically unalterable outdoors.
VITROFLEX AQUARIUM is also suitable for thermoforming, being an easy-to-handle material which in turn offers good performance against temperature fluctuations and does not emit gases toxic in its combustion.
ADVANTAGES OF VITROFLEX AQUARIUM
High molecular weight, guarantees optimal performance.
High transparency with very low optical distortion thanks to its high purity, manufactured 100% with PMMA (methyl methacrylate monomer) of the highest quality.
High dimensional stability thanks to the thermal stabilization process by annealing.
Large thicknesses to withstand high hydraulic pressures without flexing.
Availability of large formats, higher than the European standard of 3000 x 2000 mm for to be able to carry out singular works.
Thermoformable, allowing to make special curved shapes, as well as cylinders.
Possibility of joining various pieces by means of high security chemical joints and almost imperceptible.
Low level of internal stresses.
High resistance to the elements.
High resistance to aging.
High thermal and acoustic resistance.
Does not give off toxic gases when burning. Free of halogens.
Availability of special large formats.
TYPES AND FORMATS OF VITROFLEX AQUARIUM
We can manufacture any measure and any length on request. Plates of up to 15 are made meters in length and joints "in situ" if necessary. Plates flat, curved, angled, or U-shaped. Consult for special pieces. Most common sizes: 3000 x 2000 mm 2000 x 1250 mm 4000 x 2000 mm Panel sizes up to 15000 x 3000 mm are possible on request. Thicknesses: from 20 mm to 300 mm. Other thicknesses can be manufactured on request.
Windows of large aquariums.
Aquariums and cylindrical fish tanks.
MAINTENANCE OF VITROFLEX AQUARIUM
It is recommended to clean by applying a mild soap solution (neutral pH) with lukewarm water using a non-abrasive cloth. The use of aggressive detergents with a pH other than neutral can shorten the life of the material.
The use of glass cleaners containing alcohol or the like damages the properties and can cause the appearance of defects.
If a strong disinfection is desired, it is recommended to consult the resistance table Vitroflex chemicals, do a test on one piece, and preferably use only products recommended by the manufacturer.
In case of small scratches on the surface, on the non-embossed side, due to use everyday, can be removed with the use of a specific polish for car bodywork applied by hand. In case of deep scratches or large surfaces to be polished, the use of an eccentric orbital polisher.
Compliance with the ISO 7823/1 standard applicable to methacrylate casting sheets, with independent laboratory certificate. All parts are controlled one by one.
