Acrylic, also known as Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA), or common tradenames such as OPTIX®, Acrylite®, or Plexiglas®, is a thermoplastic that can be formed into a number of shapes, making it suitable for use in a broad range of industries and products. Polymershapes offers a full-line of extruded and cast sheet products from the world’s leading producers, including Plaskolite (OPTIX®, FABBACK®, DURAPLEX®) and Evonik (Acrylite®), and more. Our acrylic sheet options are ideal for a vast array of applications, including signage, displays, skylights and hundreds more.
Acrylic boasts a variety of high-performance properties, among the most important being its optical clarity, low UV sensitivity, and overall weather resistance. Acrylic offers clear, glass-like brilliance and translucence, but is much lighter and much more durable than glass. Acrylic is easy to form, with high impact resistance, excellent transparency, and superior weatherability. Additionally, coatings can be applied to enhance its functionality, including scratch-resistance, anti-fog, or reflective characteristics. Acrylic is slow-burning or even self-extinguishing, and does not produce harmful smoke or gases in the presence of flame.

Extreme Durability

Even though acrylic is lighter than glass, it is much stronger. Acrylic can be used in a broad temperature range and offers superior weather resistance.

Highly Transparent

Acrylic is able to maintain its optical clarity over the course of many years. As well, it does not yellow with age, proving important for applications such as plane windows or skylights.

Workable

With a working temperature of 100 degrees, you can mold, shape acrylic plastic into a variety of shapes. When cooled, acrylic holds its form, making it easy to shape large sheets.
