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.
