Clear Cast Acrylic is the original Plastic Glass and offers the best optical clarity which often makes it the acrylic of choice.
Clear Cast Acrylic offers all the strength and longevity of an Acrylic Sheet that you could require. It is a lightweight product which is 10 times stronger than standard Annealed Glass and has an extensive outdoor life.
As the name suggests, Cast Acrylic sheeting is made by casting acrylic resin into moulds which gives it the advantage of a very consistent structure. This means that it makes it an extremely versatile material suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications.
The key features of Clear Cast Acrylic are:
- Suitable for indoor and outdoor use
- High impact resistance
- Strong and lightweight
- 10 times stronger than Annealed Glass
- Easily drilled, sawn and cut.
- Up to 96% light transmission
- UV Stabilised
- 15-20 Years life span (indoors or outdoors)
Acrylic sheets, which can sometimes be referred to as ‘Perspex’, are a perfect alternative to Glass where a strong, lightweight and shatterproof material is required, or where safety is required. Cast Acrylic is suitable for edge polishing and will not discolour through exposure to sunlight.
Due to the longevity of the product, Cast Acrylic is a popular choice for secondary glazing to help prevent against the mild chills during Winter months. The sheets are ideal for application where a strong yet lightweight material is required, which means they have many uses such as:
- Secondary Glazing
- Display Showboards
- Picture Frames
- Projection Screens
- And Many More.
