A one-of-a-kind surface

At GEALAN, acrylcolor stands for outstanding diversity in terms of design and colour. We’ve been consistently refining our unique surface technology for over 40 years. acrylcolor window systems meet the highest technical and functional demands for innovative, coloured surfaces.

Benefits of acrylcolor

No spalling

Spalling or chipping of the coloured layer is permanently avoided due to the inseparable bond and hard surface.


Acrylic glass is an extremely colour-stable and light-fast material. Car tail lights are clear proof of the properties of this material.

Low maintenance

Thanks to the uniform surface, acrylcolor windows are easy to clean. The elegant brushed effect also makes them insensitive to dirt.

Cosmetic repairs possible

Should a scratch become visible on the profile in spite of this, it can easily be removed using a Scotch Bright pad.


The hard acrylic surface is scratch-resistant and insensitive. acrylcolor windows are therefore counted amongst the most resistant of construction elements. Measuring around 0.5 mm, the acrylic layer is thicker than any layer of varnish. Should scratches ever appear on the surface, there is sufficient material left over to buff out the scratch.

Extremely weather resistant

You are on the safe side with acrylcolor profiles from GEALAN. Over the years, acrylic glass has proven its resistance to the effects of aggressive weather in millions of car tail lights. The same material is also used for the surface of acrylcolor profiles. Windows featuring acrylcolor profiles are therefore robust, even under extreme climate conditions.

A proven technology for over 40 years

What is acrylcolor?

In a co-extrusion process, PVC base material and coloured acrylic glass (PMMA) are fused together – thus creating the top-quality acrylcolor surface, with its unrivalled properties, for window and door profiles. This enhances and protects plastic window systems in a long-lasting fashion.

Proven for decades

GEALAN has been investing in acrylcolor for over 40 years now: more than 80 million profile metres have been sold since 2000 alone, 49 million of them in Germany, which confirms acrylcolor’s high level of acceptance among window manufacturers, specialist dealers, architects and building owners.

Technologically sophisticated: in our in-house toolmaking department, we’ve been fine-tuning the coextrusion of acrylcolor profiles for decades and developing corresponding tools. Research & development in the material composition field also takes place in-house.

Our many years of expertise ensure that GEALAN profiles using acrylcolor meet the highest technical and functional demands.

About the manufacturing process

The principle of co-extrusion
During co-extrusion, the white PVC substructure and the coloured acrylic glass (PMMA) are permanently fused with one another. Acrylic glass is a high-quality product that has proven its qualities in industrial sectors such as the automotive industry (tail lights) and interior design. The vinyl profile acts as a carrier material, while the thin layer of acrylic glass is responsible for the profiles' colouring.

A one-of-a-kind surface texture
Brushing the acrylic layer not only produces a standardised grain, but also a fine, semi-matt gloss on the surface. This high-quality finish is unique on the coloured window market.

Range of designs

GEALAN offers acrylcolor surfaces for various profile systems in all system depths. Whether historic old buildings or modern cubic architecture; whether window systems, front doors, balcony doors or sliding solutions. The production of acrylcolor profiles is steadily being built up and expanded, so that today GEALAN can offer solutions for a wide range of building situations.

Range of colours

Our acrylcolor colour range is continuously adapted, optimised and expanded to meet market trends. The standard colours include nine shades. Note: as the acrylcolor colour palettes differ in the individual profile systems, you’ll find the respective colour tables on the individual pages of the corresponding profile systems.
