Acrylic sheet is easy to fabricate bonds well with adhesives and solvents and is easy to thermoform.
General information and physical properties plexiglas acrylic sheet 1 plexiglas t combines the beauty of plexiglas mc with additional toughness gained from the use of our advanced impact acrylic chemistry this union produces the aesthetics desired with increased toughness plexiglas t is more than 50 tougher than standard acrylic sheet.
Poly methyl methacrylate pmma also known as acrylic acrylic glass or plexiglass as well as by the trade names crylux plexiglas acrylite astariglas lucite perclax and perspex among several others see below is a transparent thermoplastic often used in sheet form as a lightweight or shatter resistant alternative to glass the same material can be used as a casting resin or in inks.
Also you may want to use our plastic material selection guide or interactive thermoplastics triangle to assist with the material selection process based on your application requirements.
It has superior weathering properties compared to many other transparent plastics.
Acrylite ff acrylic sheet is a continuously manufactured acrylic sheet.

The higher the lambda value the more heat the material conducts and therefore the less it insulates.
Cast acrylic sheet and block acrylic have properties that make them suitable for a wide variety of applications.
Mechanical tensile strength 75 mpa flexural strength 115 mpa.
While the form may be the same you will find that a clear polycarbonate sheet and a clear acrylic sheet are vastly different due to the physical and chemical properties of the plastic.
Use our interactive properties table below to explore by property group sort or compare two or more plastic materials.
Polycarbonate and acrylic share many of the same types of plastic sheeting options like clear colored mirrored and more.
It is pro duced by an innovative process resulting in a sheet offering the easy handling and processing of extruded sheet along with the high optical characteristics and low stress levels expected of cast products.
