Acrylic (PMMA) materials have an unusual combination of properties, outstanding weather resistance, brilliant clarity, "light-piping" and "edge-lighting" qualities, chemical resistance, and ease of forming and machining. Compared to all other types of transparent thermoplastics, acrylic has outstanding resistance to the damaging effects of sunlight and outdoor weathering. Acrylic is often recognized under brand names such as Acrylite®, Plexiglas®, Lucite®, Optix®, Polycast®, Perspex® and Chemcast®.
Polycarbonate sheet has outstanding impact strength, superior dimensional stability, high temperature resistance and high clarity. General Purpose Polycarbonate sheet is used extensively in school and factory glazing for protection against both accidental breakage and deliberate vandalism. In manufacturing environments, this high-impact material excels in applications like machine guards, noise abatement shields, clear work station partitions, freight doors and other in-plant glazing.
- Sheets supplied with protective masking on both sides.
- Other sheet sizes available on request.
KYDEX® sheet is an extremely durable Acrylic/PVC alloy extruded in a range of colors, patterns, textures, thicknesses and grades to optimize long-term performance, appearance and cost effectiveness across demanding and diverse end-use applications. No thermoplastic sheet stands up to impact, scratches, and gouging like KYDEX® sheet. KYDEX® sheet can also be stretched at room temperature to twice its original dimension without breaking. Tough stains, scuffs, and graffiti can be removed from KYDEX® surfaces using strong cleansers with no staining, fading or surface damage.
PETG is a transparent, thermoplastic sheet used widely in the point of purchase industry. PETG products offer superior impact strength over acrylic and cost effectiveness compared to polycarbonate, and offers deep draws, complex die-cuts, and precise molded-in details without sacrificing structural integrity. It die-cuts and punches easily, and can be bonded or fastened with adhesives, ultrasonic welding, or rivets. In addition, PETG is easily decorated by painting, silk screening, or hot stamping. Easy to fabricate, form, bond, and decorate, PETG sheet products are well suited for a variety of point of purchase and other applications.
