An Acrylic is a transparent thermoplastic homopolymer material which is similar to polycarbonate. It is suitable for the use of impact-resistant alternative to glasses with high impact strength. Known as the most common material, the plastic sheets are available in several colors. The raw materials allow internal transmission of light; therefore, it works as a wonderful substitute.

The acrylic material is very much similar to polycarbonate. The only possible difference is that it contains no potentially harmful substances such as bisphenol-A (BPA).

These are readily available inexpensive material and a good alternative to Polycarbonate with good scratch resistance features. If you are looking for Acrylic in Sydney, give us a call.

ADDITIONAL ACRYLIC PROPERTIES

Extruded Acrylic – The acrylic sheet can be manufactured in any length. Which minimizes material and financial loss. The sheet can be fabricated in customized size. Extruded acrylic is the easiest grade of thermoform and the easiest bond using solvent cements.

Cast Acrylic – These sheets have better chemical resistance with superior characteristics higher than extruded acrylic.

Acrylic for architectural applications – It is light weight and weather resistance which makes this a popular choice for architects. From lightning fixtures to canopies acrylic sheets can be used in every space.

FDA Complaint Acrylic – It is available in FDA complaint grades.

Cut to size Acrylic sheets – It is available in ‘cut to size’. Gain the flexibility of buying acrylic sheets. Save time, eliminate scrap, reduce wear and improve productivity.

Acrylic packs – Different grades of acrylic sheets are sold in much more convenient pack ranging from 4-12 sheets.
