SolacrylŽ is a crystal clear acrylic sheet
product that equals the finest optical
glass. Due to its extremely high clarity and
transmission of ultraviolet radiation, it is
ideal for use in the development of both
sun tanning beds and animal habitats.
SolacrylŽ for Sun tanning
SolacrylŽ SUVT is, quite simply, the highest
clarity acrylic available in the sun tanning
industry and it maintains a high
transmission of ultraviolet radiation for
In fact, Spartech Polycast warrants SolacrylŽ
SUVT for 10,000 hours - and we'll match any
warranty in the industry. This long service
allows for fewer replacements and lower
labor costs for salon operators.

SolacrylŽ for Animal
Primates, reptiles and other species need
vitamin D to properly utilize calcium. In
the wild, their bodies readily synthesize
this vitamin when exposed to sunlight.
Enclosed animals must rely on transmitted
rather than direct solar rays. They run the
risk of vitamin D deficiency which can lead
to withdrawal of calcium from their bones,
and ultimately to rickets (osteomalacia) and
impaired cellular metabolism.
A typical application at the San
As skylights in zoos, SolacrylŽ SUVT allows
the passage of ultraviolet radiance that is
beneficial to the health and well-being of
animals in captivity. A recent independent
study showed SolacrylŽ SUVT to be far
superior to other skylight materials,
including polycarbonate, fiberglass, vinyl

Other SolacrylŽ SUVT Characteristics
SolacrylŽ SUVT is designed for heavy-duty
applications like continuous daily use in a
tanning salon and also resists nicks and
scratches that can reduce IV transmission.
Resists Yellowing and
SolacrylŽ SUVT resists the yellowing,
clouding and haze that reduce the amount of
ultraviolet rays passing through the sheet
three times longer than standard UVT sheets.
SolacrylŽ SUVT has the chemical resistance
of high-quality cell cast acrylic sheet, and
cleanup is a breeze. Nothing more than a
mild soap or detergent and lukewarm water is
needed to restore its sparkle.
SolacrylŽ sheet is easy to work with. It can
be cut, drilled, and shaped by conventional
techniques. And, as a thermoplastic
material, it can be thermoformed to any
contour - from gentle curve to multi-wing. A
thermoformable protective masking, can be
left on the sheet throughout fabrication
until final installation.
