Product Description

Acrylic is manufactured in two versions- cast and extruded. Extruded Acrylic Sheet is manufactured by using a continuous extrusion process. Because an extrusion based process is used to manufacture the sheet, extruded acrylic has a lower molecular weight than sheets produced in the cell cast process.This process creates a more economical sheet and tighter tolerances. Cast Acrylic Sheet provides the greatest optical clarity and stability. The process of casting yields a more rigid product, making it more chemical resistant and suited for applications that require thick, clear and distortion free material.


Extruded Acrylic:

  • More economical
  • Better thickness tolerance
  • Thermoforms faster
  • Less particle contamination to the sheet


 Cast Acrylic:

  • Greater optical clarity, less distortion.
  • Stronger physical properties
  • Better chemical resistance against crazing
  • Great Machinability



  • 10 times more impact resistant than glass.
  • 50% lighter than glass.
  • Can expand and contract 8 times as much as glass.
  • Can be easily cut, drilled, routed, polished, cemented, laser cut and thermoformed.
  • 92% light transmittance on clear sheets.
  • Withstands exposure to sun, extreme cold, sudden temperature changes and salt water.
  • Will not deteriorate, crack, discolor or become brittle after many years.
  • Maximum continuous service temperature is approximately 180°F to 200°F, depending on the application and grade.
  • Breaks into large pieces which reduces injury.
  • FDA, USDA and NSF compliant.
  • Meets many local, city, state and government regulatory building codes.
