The manufacturing of Lucite embedments began shortly after World War
II. It has remained one of the best kept manufacturing secrets, handed
down through trusted associates. Because of the tremendous technical knowledge
required, the total number of actual manufacturers remains very small.
While much of the process is technically demanding, a basic overview is
helpful to enhance understanding of the finished product.
Lucite is a high quality acrylic product. The versatility of Lucite
allows it to be custom designed into a variety of shapes and sizes, incorporating
many different types of embedded elements. However, due to chemical
reactions during the process, not everything can be embedded.
