What is acrylic sheets

Acrylic is available in two grades, cast and extruded (XT). We mostly stock XT.
Acrylic plastic sheets are used for glazing in many contexts where you want something that is lighter, cheaper, more impact-resistant and has better formability than glass. The material is also a popular material for further shaping into interior design and display products, etc. Some other examples of areas of use are lighting, light signs, displays, brochure racks, furniture, sanitary ware, noise screen, boat windows and more.
Acrylic plastic is a relatively rigid plastic, stiffer than other glass-clear plastics such as polycarbonate and polyesters (PET). It is not very stretchable at room temperature, which means that it can crack during more severe deformations. Acrylic is not as brittle as polystyrene (the glass-clear plastic material that, for example, CD boxes are usually made of) and much more impact-resistant than tempered glass. But the material does not have the same enormously high impact strength as polycarbonate.
Discs are available from 2-25 mm. The tolerance on a cast board is 10% +/- 0.1 mm.
The tolerance on an extruded sheet is +/- 0.1 mm.
The boards are shiny but are available in different variants, for example, matt (satin), uncoloured, colored transparent and completely colored and patterned.
