Thanks to the efforts of Evonik Cyro, the Plastics Hall of Fame at the University of Massachusetts at Lowell (UMass) will continue to honor the major contributors and innovators in the plastics industry.
Evonik Cyro has donated twelve Acrylite® Abrasion Resistant acrylic sheets, valued at over $2000, to the University. The sheets will be used to protect approximately 44 plaques from harm and deterioration. The sheets will be installed by Altec Plastics, which offers full-service custom fabrication.
“We are very grateful to Evonik Cyro for donating this product to better preserve and protect the photographs and biographies on the plaques,” said Robert Malloy, professor at UMass’ Plastics Engineering Department. “These acrylic sheets offer great optical clarity and are a safer and superior choice compared to glass. Their high-impact strength makes them shatter resistant and their abrasion and chemical-resistant properties prevent marring and scratching.”
