Fused wood and translucent acrylic

Luminate combines translucent plastic and wood strips in a rigid panel format, allowing light to filter through a material used for applications that would usually require an opaque surface. The material is a modified acrylic adhered to selected exotic timbers with a proprietary fusion process. The manufacturer has also recently combined colored finishes with the translucent strips.
