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.
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.
The non-porous surface makes acrylcolor windows easy to clean. The elegant brushed effect also makes them insensitive to dirt.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
In addition to the acrylcolor standard colours, more than 50 other special colours are available on request: from white aluminium to purple. Enquire with our partners to find out more.
153 spacious residential units featuring new façades and roofs with good insulating properties as well as energy-saving systems have been built as part of a renovation project in Kerkrade in Holland. The southern aspect is also equipped with solar panels.
A successful synthesis of historicism and modern architecture forms the new brewery complex with adjoining beer shop. The cubic and very clearly structured new build in terms of form is an addition to other properties on the former firing range for the Czech army. The resulting lightness benefits from the unique location with a view of the bordering Central Bohemian Uplands. The large windows contribute a large part of the overall impression of the complex, on the outside they are painted in the popular colour DB 703 and on the inside they are slate grey. With this building, the tradition of beer brewing is going back to its roots in a region with a substantial hop production.
The buildings are an ensemble of apartment buildings from the years 1910 - 1911 in Hamburg, Germany. The five-storey masonry buildings were built in the typical style of the Gründerzeit houses.
