BETACRYL® the acrylic stone of the new generation

Our material

BETACRYL® Pure Acrylic Stone is a Solid Surface material made approximately of two-thirds of aluminum hydroxide, a third of acrylic resin and natural pigments.
The aluminum hydroxide gives the product a particular strength, the quality of the acrylic resin ensures cleanliness, suitability for contact with food, water resistance and colour stability over time. Despite its consistency, similar to natural stone, BETACRYL® is restorable and can be fabricated with woodworking equipment. It can be seamlessly joined and a simple thermoforming process allows to create curved surfaces allowing total freedom to the designers’ imagination.
BETACRYL® complies with the Euroclass B-s1-d0 standards

Why  acrylic stone?

Total waterproofness of the material: it does not absorb and any stains might be only superficial. Eligibility for food contact Restorable: the material can be repaired and restored to life. Colour stability: the material does not change colour over time. Hygiene: non-porous, imperceptible joints. Inert: not subject to special disposal, considered as a solid urban waste

Why BETACRYL

Sheets are offered in the widest range of thicknesses, widths and lengths of the market. Material cutting waste reduction: reduced fabrication costs. Simply copy colour: BETACRYL® can be produced in customised colours and any shade even in small quantities. Wide range of shapes for kitchens, sanitary and bathrooms. Customised moulded products can be produced on specific design. Antibacterial: BETACRYL® has obtained the international certificate of Eurofins Fire resistance: BETACRYL® is certificated by the prestigious Euroclass B S1 D0 on its whole sheets standard production. Eco-friendly: a high percentage of recycled material is reused in the material recipe.

Betacryl Advantages

Sheets, shapes and bathtubs

Our brand new production site opened in 2016 allows us to be the only reality in the world organising to produce in the same plant - and in pure acrylic - sheets of variable width from 760 to 1520mm and thicknesses from 3.5 to 25mm,  both built-in and free-standing washbasins  and bathtubs. One of our greatest strengths is  the “colour-matching” between the different elements and formed the possibility of using and jointing sheets of different size.

Reducing material waste

In the furniture manufacture and fabrication one of the biggest cost items is the incidence of material cuts off.
Our production idea, based on the creation of different sheet sizes, allows furniture manufacturers and fabricators to significantly reduce production waste and joint operations and consequently, minimise the cost of the finished product.

High thermoformability

There are no other materials with the same versatility as Betacryl®. It is thermoformable indeed and allows  with extreme simplicity, to obtain curved forms with great esthetic impact

Elegant light games

The development of a different formula in Betacryl’s recipe allows us to obtain a translucent Acrylic Stone version, which suitably illuminated, gives highly scenic architectural results.

Colour stability - external use

The noble raw material used in BETACRYL® production (aluminum trioxide and pure acrylic) ensures excellent colour stability over time even in outdoor installations.
Tests show imperceptible chromatic variations  to the naked eye in standard climatic and atmospheric agents 

Imperceptible joints

BETACRYL® can be glued with imperceptible joints. This welding process, guaranteed by a two-component adhesive, allows to obtein monolithic results with no visible joints between the different BETACRYL® elements.

Matching with other materials

The ever-intensing skill of the Acrylic Stone fabricators allows to combine BETACRYL® to other materials (such as steel and other type of metals, antique or veneered wood, glass, concrete and resins) with astonishing success.

Suitable for contact with food

BETACRYL® recipe and the raw material formula, during the polymerization proces, make BETACRYL® aseptic and  antibacterial in a “natural” way  (without the addition of specific chemical additives).
BETACRYL® is therefore ideal for use in areas of healthcare , medical sites and food.

Environmentally friendly

Betacryl® chemical formula has been studied in full respect for the environment, in both production and daily use (never created air pollution). it is composed of a high percentage of recycled material and is considered as inert waste and does not require special waste disposal.
Betacryl® can be cleaned with extreme simplicity, thanks to the material homogeneity throughout its whole thickness.
Betacryl® is non-porous and antibacterical in a “natural” way  (without the addition of specific chemical additives, thanks to an antimicrobial proces that takes constant reduction in the microbes vitality, in daily use).
Betacryl® is flame-retardant, self-extinguishing and does not generate toxic gas: these qualities allow Betacryl® to obtain the B S1 d0 certificate for its whole range of products.

Workable with wood tools

Although BETACRYL® looks very similar with stone, it can be easily fabricated with conventional tools and machines suitable for carpentry, therefore no wet processing operations are required.
Thanks to this feature as it is easily ‘adaptable’ during installation. Simple sanding operations allow to obtain different surface finishing, from matt to glossy.
