TESSEMATT is the name for ASTARIGLAS® range of matt satin-textured cast acrylic sheets. The name comes from the Latin word “tessera” which means a small cube of coloured glass used for ornamental purposes.
This special texture provides elements of elegance and warmth. It retains the “frosted look” even after thermoforming, sawing and drilling.
Customers may choose from different degrees of translucency, as light is diffused uniformly, thereby softening strong colours and subtly filtering the light to reduce glare.
The pleasant-to-touch surface makes this type of material suitable for furniture and certain architectural applications, as well as many other applications.
ASTARIGLAS® TESSEMATT is available in single-sided (TESSEMATT S) and double-sided satin surface (TESSEMATT DS).
