POLYMETHYL METHACRYLATE (ACRYLIC)

Poly methyl methacrylate or acrylic is a transparent thermoplastic. AAA acrylic sheets are able to withstand harsh weather conditions, including UV radiation. These sheets maintain their optical properties for several years and are suitable for industries such as construction and signange. acrylic’s mechanical and optical properties make it an excellent replacement for glass.

High transparency Harsh weather resistant Good light transmission High impact strength Light weight

Anti-glare Anti-glare sheets are shatter resistant, lightweight and ideal for glazing. They are suitable for signage, silk-screening and POP displays. Anti-scratch Scratch resistant sheets provide good protection against scratches. They are suitable for retail displays, table tops and door panels. High impact strength Acrylic sheets modified for high impact strength are much harder than normal acrylic sheets or glass sheets of the same thickness. These sheets are suitable for signage, displays, skylights and other transportation purposes.
