Acrylic is a transparent plastic material with outstanding strength and optical clarity, acrylic resembles glass but offers better transparency and is 50% lighter than glass. Acrylic is manufactured by two different production processes. Cast Acrylic is manufactured by a cast mould process, while extruded acrylic sheets are manufactured by a continuous production process.
Cast acrylic is a lightweight, flexible and impact resistant substitute for glass It is an excellent material for applications that require superior optical and physical properties. Cast acrylics have a resistance to crazing when exposed to solvents and have a harder surface.
This product can come in many sizes, thicknesses, and finishes and is easily fabricated and thermoformed. Cast acrylic is also preferred over extruded in applications that require machining. Cast acrylic sheet is used in many applications including POP displays, transportation, furniture, glazing, signage, displays, and security windows.
