Unlike Cast Acrylic, Extruded Acrylic sheets are manufactured by extruding the resin over a production line which offers a uniform thickness and an excellent surface finish. A superb replacement for glass in a number of applications, Extruded Acrylic is as much as ten times more resistant to impact than glass and has excellent UV stability.
This makes it a popular choice of material for replacement greenhouse panels and secondary glazing, where it can offer 15-20 years of flawless service in all weathers. It performs well wherever a strong, lightweight and shatterproof material is required – particularly in environments where safety is a concern.
Clear acrylic is also known by the trade names of Perspex®, Lucite, Altuglas and Plexiglass.
In addition to its strength, the versatility of Extruded Acrylic is further broadened by its light weight, resistance to chemicals and a low moisture absorption rate which makes it suitable for food contact and for use in hygienic environments.
It is easily maintained and can be cleaned with a soft cloth with a little soap and warm water.
