One of the key benefits of acrylic plastic is it’s shatterproof nature and the tensile strength that it offers, with impact resistance up to 17 times greater than glass. On top of this, it is one of the easiest plastics to fabricate and shape with. Due to it’s lightweight composition it is easier to handle and is often incorporated into various products and equipment including shoes, dental products and surgery. This versatility means that it is now one of the most popular plastics used in manufacturing and the construction industry. With clear acrylic glass cut to size, you have even more variations in a choice of colours and sizes to suit your needs.
The transparency is effective because of its UV resistance and over time, there is no discolouration. For window panes, greenhouses and shop fronts this is crucial.
