1960

Remember the hula hoop craze? Plaskolite manufactured hula hoops in the early sixties.

1970

Plaskolite begins producing smooth acrylic sheets for storm doors and windows; it's much safer than plate glass.

Plaskolite builds its first polymer plant, enabling us to produce our own pellets for sheet production.

1994

With the purchase of MIR-ACRYL, Plaskolite begins producing mirrored acrylic sheet; security mirrors; and hard-coated acrylic sheet products.

1996

Plaskolite acquires Continental Acrylics, a specialty polymers business.

2000

In August, Plaskolite completes construction on a state-of-the-art 245,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility in Zanesville, Ohio.

2006

Plaskolite acquired Bunker Plastics, a leading manufacturer of polycarbonate mirror; formed security and transportation mirror; and performance enhancement plastic coatings.

2007

Plaskolite acquires the continuously processed acrylic sheet division of Lucite International, including manufacturing plants in Olive Branch, Miss., and Monterrey, Mexico.

2012

Plaskolite acquires the North American VIVAK® line of PETG sheet from Bayer MaterialScience LLC.

OPTIX Acrylic
