Acrylic sheet, or plexiglass sheet, is ideal for applications requiring the beauty and clarity of acrylic where a traditionally higher impact product is required. Acrylic Sheets “Plexiglass sheets” maintain consistent clear edge color before and after fabrication, giving fixtures and displaying the desired elegance that is lost with other impact-modified materials that impart an “industrial” look. Acrylic sheeting resists yellowing and fading and offers superior dimensional stability.
Acrylic Sheet provides a wide array of benefits to each application it serves. When it’s used in the light, the plexiglass naturally resists yellowing and absorbs a significant portion of the UV spectrum. The Acrylic sheet does not require a special filter or film to give the added benefit of UV protection, however, there is UV-resistant acrylic sheeting to provide improved protection. Acrylic plastic is a favorite material for a variety of applications because of its ability to retain its clarity and shininess, even after fabrication and installation.
Acrylic sheets are less expensive than both glass and polycarbonate sheeting. Acrylic sheet is also 17 times more impact resistant than glass, can be polished smooth, and is easier to cut. Keep in mind that the Acrylic plexiglass sheet is very rigid and can crack and chip easily.
