Reynolds Polymer Technology, Inc. manufactured R-Cast® panels for the new Loveland Living Planet Aquarium in Utah, which is now a key attraction for aquarium enthusiasts and tourists alike. RPT played the pivotal role of aquarium builders by supplying R-Cast® acrylic for the long aquarium tunnel as well as multiple aquarium windows for the shark tank and penguin exhibit. The two shark tank aquarium windows are 20 feet long by almost 9 feet tall which are capable of holding back some 300,000 gallons of water. The 40 foot long tunnel at Living Planet is in fact the longest underwater viewing tunnel in the Rocky Mountain region. The penguin exhibit includes a couple 20 foot long acrylic panels and a unique, 15 foot wide, custom-cast demi-tunnel for an underwater viewing experience.
