Extruded Acrylic Overview
Extruded Acrylic sheet ideal for glazing and retail projects
Extruded Acrylic , medium impact (MI) and ultra high impact (UHI), has properties similar to Perspex® Cast Acrylic. Due to its lower molecular weight, however, extruded acrylic sheeting has lower crazing, chemical, and solvent resistance, but provides better vacuum forming definition.
Extruded acrylic sheet design capabilities
Like Perspex® Cast Acrylic, Extruded Acrylic is a highly durable plastic sheeting used by designers and fabricators world-wide to give shape and form to creative ideas. Extruded Acrylic sheet has excellent thickness tolerance and is ideal for creating complex shapes.
Because Extruded Acrylic sheeting is easy to vacuum form it is highly suitable for manufacturing signs and advertising material; glazing; furniture production; lighting; and the printing industry. It is available in Opal and Clear (UHI) and Clear (MI).
Solid Polycarbonate Sheeting for demanding applications
With its ultra-high impact resistance qualities Solid Polycarbonate is the material of choice for demanding applications. Although as transparent as glass and less than half the weight, Polycarbonate is virtually unbreakable. It is ideal for skylights, architectural roofing and glazing as it can be cold bent, easily fabricated and formed . The material also allows for high light transmission and blocks harmful UV radiation.
