Chrysalis ( \ˈkri-sə-ləs\ ) is architectural-quality translucent resin panels that allow the maximum use of natural lighting while still maintaining useful levels of privacy. Utilizing Encapsulated Image Layer Technology, or E.I.L.T., Chrysalis panels are formed using a manufacturing process patented by Eastman Chemical Company. Our panels have a decorative inclusion suspended in their medium and form a structure that is 40 times more impact resistant than float glass! Yet, unlike glass, Chrysalis can be
thermoformed or cold bent quickly and easily into any desired shape. This makes it ideal for custom fabricated installations. Chrysalis panels make an ideal replacement for wood, acrylic, architectural glass, metal and other panel material in your next project. And thanks to their beauty, safety and adaptability, translucent resin panels have become popular world-wide for use in commercial, hospitality, healthcare, food service, retail and even residential architecture.
Chrysalis represents the next generation of architectural-quality translucent resin panels by fusing patented technology with unique high definition patterns and design innovations. Our panels are sparkling clear, tough, chemically resistant, versatile and affordable. Chrysalis will not crystallize or develop a haze, nor will it turn white with the use of mild cleaning solutions. It is easy to fabricate, allowing greater design freedom, and can be laser cut, welded, drilled, hot or cold bent, or joined by screws, rivets, or bolts. It can also be cut on conventional table, band, and radial-arm saws as well as with other common tungsten-carbide-tipped woodworking tools. Chrysalis
Chrysalis is completely "Made in the USA"; produced in state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in southern California, capable of large volume orders with short turnaround times. All our panels are made exclusively with Eastman Spectar® PETG resin, which carries the GREENGUARD certification for indoor air quality. Due to our business model of manufacturing for distribution, all inclusions from our line are available at all times in any volume, and can all be ordered in up to 92% recycled content. See our technical specifications for information on LEEDS credits.
panels can be vacuum-formed at lower temperatures than other plastics, and are self-healing with the application of heat, so you won’t have to scrap an expensive architectural panel because it becomes scratched or marred during use. Our panels also easily form strong, clear bonds with commercially available cements. Thanks to this versatility, you’ll now find Chrysalis panels used in everything from cabinet door inserts, partitions and wall panels to balustrades, signage and lighting applications. Chrysalis has even been used in actual works of art! This means the design uses of Chrysalis are literally unlimited!
