The Benefits of Acralyte

At Table Topics, we’ve been in the business of creating only the highest quality custom commercial dining tables since 1980. That quality continues to shine through in all of our products with our invention of Acralyte.

Available exclusively through Table Topics, Acralyte is an acrylic resin that is chemically engineered to provide greater scratch, mar, chemical, and heat resistance than traditional furniture finishes (like epoxy resin, polyester resin, urethane, and conversion varnishes). Ideal for both restaurant tables and bars, Acralyte is available in all sorts of levels or sheens, or for practically any need or application:

Like many of our customers, we were tired of seeing beautiful tables rapidly deteriorate because of the poor quality of epoxy resin finishes. So we got to work, spending years doing research and testing for better alternatives because we knew there had to be a better way. What makes Acralyte different? It’s that it’s so much more than just a chemical coating. It’s an entire manufacturing process that includes everything from the materials used in the product to the product operations, which aren’t the typical standards for furniture manufacturing. We utilize a rigorous production process that is tightly monitored and controlled, ensuring an end product that is unmatched in quality.

Not only does Acralyte help produce high quality products, but products coated in Acralyte are more durable. When properly cared for, products with Acralyte will consistently outlast a similar style table that doesn’t have the Acralyte finish. In fact, while a similar style table may have a product life of one to two years, our tables with Acralyte are expected to last at least five to seven years—in many instances they last 10 years or more.

Cost effectiveness, quality, and durability are just three of the reasons why more and more businesses are turning to our Acralyte line of products for their table needs. Contact us today to find out how we can work with you to help you create the look you want while saving you money.

Start with the Finish: Acralyte Finish Styles

Of course, your new tables will be delivered with a fabulous finish. And with the superior products and processes of Table Topics, that finish will be functional and durable for years to come. Our patented Acralyte finishes offer a greater resistance to scratching, marring and heat than traditional finishes of epoxy, polyester resin or varnishes. Our finish is chemically engineered and UV-cured to achieve greater resilience.

Acralyte’s unrivaled performance is the best solution out there for use in the demanding environments of commercial table tops. It offers variety, too. Full filled and open grain options give our clients just the look they want with the unmatched durability they need.

Full Filled Acralyte offers the most protection for your table, adding additional layers of finish. It adds dimension as well, making it an excellent choice for multi-layered or textured surfaces.

  • Full Filled Gloss – The clearest finish offered, it is typically used in very contemporary designs.
  • Full Filled Satin – This silky, smooth finish has a pearl-like shine.
  • Full Filled Matte – Its smooth, subtle look shows little to no sheen.

Open Grain Acralyte provides a hard, durable coating with the appearance of a hand-rubbed oil finish. It is applied as a thin layer that shows off the texture of the wood grain, but still provides the same scratch, mar and chemical resistance that Acralyte is known for. It even offers higher heat-resistant properties, while enhancing the natural look and feel of the wood grain.

  • Open Grain Satin – This silky finish has a pearl-like shine.
  • Open Grain Matte – Its subtle look shows little to no sheen.
