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.
