Evonik Cyro Introduces the ACRYLITE® Online Shop for Designers And Decision-Makers in the Acrylics Marketplace

Products can be ordered online from the ACRYLITE brand of acrylic sheet, and ACRIFIX cements and cleaners

Evonik Cyro LLC introduces the ACRYLITE® Online Shop (, a new online platform for fast and easy cut-to-size prototyping samples and small-quantity customer orders. Acrylics designers, architects, product-engineers and distributors will be able to view and order products in three categories: sheet, cements and acrylic cleaners.

“The ACRYLITE Online Shop creates a win/win situation for Evonik Cyro and our customers,” said Steffen Schueller, Marketing Manager, Sheet Products at Evonik Cyro. “By taking this service online, we do not only meet increasing inquiries we receive daily on our 800 line, but also can offer 24/7 availability, shorter lead times and the possibility for commercial customers to order their own samples and have them shipped directly to their customers. Ordering online will, in addition, help reduce cutting and waste inhouse. This will further increase ACRYLITE’s position as a premium acrylic brand in the minds of the market’s decision makers.”

Users will be able to browse through products in the ACRYLITE catalog of sheet products, as well as ACRIFIX cements and cleaners. All products have detailed information including application images, price, colors and specifications. Once a product has been selected, let’s say for example ACRYLITE® Radiant sheet, cut-to-size samples from as little as 1x1ft. and upwards can be ordered. Once the order is placed in the Shopping Cart and the user is ready to check out, they can review their order and select their shipping preference. This provides an easy and fast way to get a piece of specialty acrylic in exactly the size that a customer requires.

“And there is more to come,” says Schueller. “We plan to enlarge the variety of specialty sheet as well as adding other products like ACRYLITE® Rods & Tubes or sample boxes to the product offering of the shop, as this is what our main target groups of decision makers requests all the time.”
