Acrylic is a synthetic (man-made) plastic and like all plastics, Acrylic is a polymer. The word polymer comes from the Greek words poly, meaning many, and meros, meaning a part. A polymer, therefore, is a material made up of many molecules, or parts, linked together like a chain. Polymers may have hundreds, or even thousands, of molecules linked together. Most importantly however, a polymer is a material that has properties entirely different than its component parts.
The process of making a polymer, known as polymerization is like to mixing together scrap glass, copper, and many other materials, stirring the mixture, and coming...
Although Luminati specialises in acrylic fabrication we do not limit ourselves to this one material. To meet the combined visual and functional requirement of our products we pick from a huge range of materials including MDF, Plywood, laminate, foam PVC, Composite boards, steel, Aluminium, glass, polycarbonate & PETG to name a few.
We’re always on the lookout for new materials and finishes that we can incorporate to make our products stand out.
We’ve recently had some stunning results using MDF with a high gloss sprayed finish as an alternative to gloss acrylic.

Oh the joys of a crisp autumn day - with leaves on the ground and pleasant walks in the country. How different from a few months ago and the hot Summers days.
It was on one of these days that technology appeared in a very unsual location. While walking around the Start Point area of Devon, I noticed the sign posts. These were not just the standard wooden sign posts but these were NFC (Near Field Communication) tagged. Tap your smartphone or scan the QR code and you get taken to a website with further details about the area and walks.
We have a number of items from Tags to NFC poster frames available on our website, check it...
As well as all of the marvellous products that we make with acrylic, we are always developing products with new and ever changing designs. We like to sometimes incorporate different materials to our products. One such product is the LK17 lecturn, this uses a lovely Birch ply base and a centre panel that can be in the same material or a silver looking aluminium composite material. Both provide a stunning variation on a theme. The centre panels can be printed or even in the case of the ply version, laser engraved.
Both variations of the lectern still retain their clean but simple looking design to product a very effective and...
Luminati Waycon were approached by CompoTech to create an exhibition display to show their CarbonFibre composite beams at a European exhibition.
We designed and created a sytem using all flat panels to enable the whole display to be transported in the back of an estate car from the UK to the Czech republic.
The frosted acrylic plinths were internally illuminated with LED strips to add more “theatre” to what is otherwise a dull matt black product. The units also had to withstand loadings of steel tooling and associated accessories hanging from the sides.
The whole design and manufacture process was completed on budget...

My wife loves making jewellery, we end up with jewellery boxes and jewellery holders everywhere.
Each box and case is filled to the brim with beautiful shiny creations.
She is always admiring the selection of jewellery in our local town in the display cabinets and on jewellery display stands.
Unique and made with passion and care, presently only given as gifts, but who knows? One day they could be in those display cases, advertised in a fancy brochure dispenser or available in every shop, who knows?
