Product Overview

Acrylic - Engineered thermoplastic

Acrylic, also known as polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), is a versatile and widely used thermoplastic with unique properties that make it one of the most common plastics. Known for its clarity, strength, and ease of fabrication, acrylic has seen use in almost every industry.

Acrylic is valued for its optical clarity, allowing up to 92% of visible light to pass through, compared to glass that only allows 80-90%. It is significantly lighter, simplifying handling, installation, and reducing transportation costs. Its impact resistance, up to 20 times greater than glass, makes it ideal for safety-critical applications. Acrylic can also be weather resistant, enduring UV radiation without yellowing, and is easy to fabricate using techniques like laser cutting and CNC machining. Its chemical resistance, thermal insulation, recyclability, and aesthetic versatility—available in various colors, finishes, and textures—make acrylic a versatile, sustainable choice for professionals in every industry.

Features and Benefits:

  • Optical Clarity: Acrylic is known for its exceptional clarity and light transmission, allowing up to 92% of visible light to pass through. This makes it an excellent alternative to glass in many applications.
  • Lightweight: Acrylic is significantly lighter than glass, making it easier to handle and install. This weight advantage also translates to lower transportation costs and easier maintenance.
  • Thermal Insulation: Acrylic provides good thermal insulation, which can be beneficial in applications like windows and skylights where temperature control is important.
  • Lightweight: Capable resisting wear and impact despite its light weight.
  • Weather Resistance: Acrylic has excellent resistance to the elements, including UV radiation, which means it does not yellow or become brittle when exposed to sunlight. This property makes it ideal for outdoor applications.
  • Recyclable: Acrylic can be recycled, reducing its environmental impact and making it a more sustainable choice compared to other plastics.



  • Lighting: Excellent clarity with heat and electrically insulative properties, acryllic is commonly used in light fixtures.
  • Displays and Signage: Acrylics weatherability and clarity make it a great choice for both indoor and outdoor signs.
  • Architectural Glazing: The most common glass alternative in architectural glazing.
  • Electronics: Great for insulative and light weight components.
  • Mirrors: Available in mirrored finishes, acryllic makes lightweight and shatterproof mirrors.
