A versatile option, acrylic is one of the most popular choices for items such as retail displays, furniture, and aquariums due to its balance of strength and corrosion resistance.
More resistant to scratches, heat, and chemicals than extruded acrylic, cast acrylic is an excellent choice when you need a strong, resilient material for your application. It has a clear, uniform finish, and withstands machining, drilling, and tapping.
Lightweight and impact resistant, use extruded acrylic as an alternative to glass when safety is an issue. It has better thickness tolerance than cast acrylic and can be more easily vacuum formed, making it a good choice for applications requiring intricate shapes.
