PLASKOLITE UNVEILS TWO LUCITE® SPA COLORS AT THE 2018 INTERNATIONAL POOL, SPA, PATIO EXPO


LAS VEGAS – October 31, 2018 - Lucite® SPA, the leading brand of cast acrylic for spa surfacing manufactured by Plaskolite, North America’s largest producer of thermoplastic sheet products, today announced the availability of two new colors: Big Sur and Smoky Mountains. The hues, available in 2019 are on display in booth #2649 at the 2018 International Pool, Spa, Patio Expo (PSP Expo), happening now at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. 

Long known for its color leadership, the Lucite® SPA line introduced the new shades as part of its popular SerenityTM series. 

“Our manufacturer customers rely on us to track consumer trends and develop colors that meet homeowners’ aesthetic needs,” said Dan Draper, marketing director at Plaskolite. “Big Sur and Smoky Mountains are colors that help promote a sense of renewal and relaxation. They both showcase cool colors, which remain popular, but also introduce warm tones to provide a fresh new look that matches the latest patio trends.” 

The preferred choice of manufacturers worldwide, Lucite® SPA cross-linked cast acrylic is used in the finest spa and bath designs. Each year, the brand unveils color cards with images and stories for dealers to use in their showrooms. To follow are the stories for the new colors:

Big Sur: Head for the coast and behold the natural beauty of Big Sur. Winding roads, breathtaking vistas and crashing waves invigorate and renew. Lose yourself among the sea, the bluffs and the sky.

Smoky Mountains: Wander into the magic of the Smoky Mountains. Let your spirits soar with the elevations. Take your time. Smell the sweetness of the wildflowers and feel the waterfall mist on your skin.

“In looking at our new colors and the accompanying creative, we’re reminded to slow down, consider the road less traveled and enjoy the beauty of the world around us,” said Chris Robinson, sales director, spa and bath for Plaskolite. “We’re excited to show the new colors to both manufacturers and their dealers who are always looking for ways to differentiate their offerings leading up to selling season.”  


A hot tub made from Lucite® SPA cast acrylic offers a luxurious finish to any vision of relaxation. Available in timeless solids and complex patterns that won’t fade over time, Lucite® SPA resists everyday wear and tear, stains, and superficial scratches. 

Earlier this year, Plaskolite acquired the continuous cast acrylic sheet business of Lucite International, Inc., which marked the company’s entrée into the spa and bath sheet business.
