Cast Acrylic Sheet
Cast acrylic sheet offers superb optical clarity and optimum performance that cannot be matched at any price. Cast from premium materials, these cell cast acrylic sheets allow precision manufacturing applications to meet a wide range of specifications. Whether it’s cutting, drilling, routing, cementing, polishing or thermoforming, Cast Acrylic is a tough product to rival. Our advanced technology also assures superior resistance to weathering and crazing.
LIGHT IN WEIGHT
Cast Acrylic is less than half the weight when compared to inorganic glass.
Colorless Cast Acrylic is crystal clear, and transmits 92% of visible light.
Cast Acrylic is resistant to inorganic chemicals and normal chained hydrocarbons. However, contact with organic solvents may cause swelling, crazing, or cracking.
Cast Acrylic is approximately 8 to 10 times more resistant to impact than ordinary plate glass.
Cast Acrylic can be saw cut, drilled, routed, machined, solvent cemented, polished and strip bent using conventional acrylic sheet fabrication techniques.
An excellent thermoplastic, Cast Acrylic may be thermoformed. Because Cast Acrylic is a cell cast sheet, it is not subject to the excessive shrinkage that is encountered in extruded or continuously manufactured sheets
In general, Cast Acrylic has a surface hardness almost identical to aluminum. Cast Acrylic is harder than most other plastic sheeting, yet slightly softer than glass. Therefore, Cast Acrylic may be scratched by abrasion.
