Evonik Industries is a worldwide manufacturer of PMMA products sold under the ACRYLITE® trademark in the Americas and under the PLEXIGLAS® trademark on the European, Asian, African and Australian continents. ACRYLITE® cast acrylic provides excellent light transmission and will not yellow over prolonged periods of time. Acrylic is half the weight of glass with many times the impact resistance hence why it is a popular choice for large panels in aquariums.

About the IAC
Taking place every four years, the Congress has been held around the world, including Europe, the Americas and Asia since its inception in 1960. The Congress provides the scientific community with the latest on marine life research, extending the opportunity to discuss global and local issues and sharing successful initiatives. The 2012 IAC in South Africa took place in Cape Town. The torch has now been passed to the Vancouver Aquarium which—with the help of its 400+ staff and over 1,000 volunteers— is planning for an incredible experience from September 25 to 30, 2016.
The IAC is the only international platform that gathers decision makers and professionals from the global public aquarium community to share and learn about new developments in the fields of inter alia animal husbandry, research, technology, management, education, conservation and sustainability.
