Acrylic

Acrylic sheet is a material with unique physical properties and performance characteristics. It weighs half as much as the finest optical glass, yet is equal to it in clarity and is up to 17 times more impact resistant. It can be worked as easily as wood, can be formed into endless, interesting and functional shapes, is resistant to chemicals and industrial fumes, and remains stable under sustained exposure to the elements. Acrylic sheet is made in over 250 colors, in thicknesses from .030″ to 4.25′ and can transmit ultraviolet light or filter it out, as required. Aircraft manufacturers use Acrylic sheet in jets and helicopters. Bullet-resisting Acrylic sheet helps solve security problems for banks and stores. Because of its light and energy transmission properties architects find Acrylic ideal for skylights, sun screens, fascia panels and dome structures. Acrylic material is a favorite medium of furniture designers and sculptors. Retailers show off their merchandise in displays made from Acrylic sheet, with signs made from Acrylic sheet. It is used in home furnishings, chair mats, lighting fixtures, safety equipment, decorating panels, office partitions and appliances of all kinds.
