Embedments in Solid Plexiglas AcrylicThe LuciteŽ Story
Lucite is a high quality acrylic product. The versatility of LuciteŽ allows it to be custom designed into a variety of shapes and sizes, incorporating many different types of embedded elements. However, due to chemical reactions during the process, not everything can be embedded.
The process starts with two basic ingredients, an acrylic resin powder and monomer, a crystal clear liquid. The powder and monomer are mixed together in specific proportions. The result is a thick, opaque liquid. The mixture is hand poured into molds and allowed to partially harden. Objects to be embedded are then hand placed into the LuciteŽ layer.
Another layer is poured over the embedded object and the LuciteŽ is again allowed to harden.
Heat and pressure are applied to the parts to remove any air bubbles and completely harden the part. Parts are then sanded to size then buffed by hand to a bright crystal-like finish.
The pages below shows the numerous shapes available. Custom shapes can be made at a higher price.
