Acrylic is a lightweight, rigid thermoplastic with optical clarity. It is one of the superior alternatives to glass, offering excellent weather and chemical stability.
Acrylic At a Glance
|Process compatibility||Applications||Tolerances||Wall Thickness||Max Part Size||Strengths||Lead Time||Price|
|Low-cost glass alternative with excellent accuracy and repeatability.||Not lower than 0.25 mm (±0.010″), based on the drawing ( ISO 2768)||Minimum 0.80 mm (0.03″), but this can change depending on the proportion of the wall thickness to the linear dimension.||200 x 80 x 100 cm||Excellent mechanical properties, Optical clarity, rigidity, and good chemical and weather resistance.||Minimum 3 days. Not more than 10 days; for all complex parts.||$|
Introduction to Acrylic
Acrylic is the commonly used thermoplastic with high strength and optical clarity. It is the ideal alternative to glass in many applications due to its transparency.
It is a lightweight material with excellent chemical resistance, Stiffness, thermal formability, durability, and aesthetic appeal. In addition, Acrylic is also easy for machining and fabrication.
It is applicable for Interior design, construction, light boxes, billboards, water-proof elements, shoes, tennis rackets, Fiber Optic Cabling, and chemical processing.
