CNC Laser Cutting
Laser cutting is a fabrication process that uses a thin, intensely focused stream of light to cut through a range of different materials, including plastics and acrylics. Read more
Diamond & Flame polishing
Edge polishing is a fabrication process that polishes the edges of acrylic panels, removes any cutting marks, and achieves a smooth, glossy finish. Read more
Rotary & Laser Engraving
Laser engraving is a fabrication process that uses a laser beam to physically remove the surface of a material to create an indentation that is noticeable to both the eye and touch. Read more
Line bending is a process that’s used to make precise folds in plastic and acrylic components. Our line bending fabrication service allows us to bend plastic and acrylic sheets along a defined ‘line’ – without any need for gluing or joining. Read more

Clear extruded acrylic sheet is a high quality acrylic sheet material with a light transmission level higher than that of all other thermoplastic sheet materials except cast acrylic sheet. Extruded acrylic is of a slightly lower quality than cast acrylic but its production process is more economical making it a lower cost material to purchase.
- Excellent thickness tolerance
- Optical clarity
- High gloss surface on both sides
- Hard wearing
- Weather resistant
- Easy to bend and shape
- Suitable for vacuum forming
- Point of sale
- Retail display
- Display cases
Excellent thickness tolerance
Extruded acrylic has an excelent thickness tolerance meaning there is little variation in thicknesses within the same sheet of material, thiis is also true of the thickness tolerance between multiple sheets of material. The thickness tolerance of extruded acrylic sheet is +/- 5% while the thickness tolerance of cast acrylic sheet cab be as high as +/- 15%.
While not quite as high as the optocal clarity of clear cast acrylic sheet, clear extruded sheet still performs very well in this area. The economic cost of extruded acrylic is often required for high volume projects, so unless the highest possible levels of optical clarity are required, then extruded acrylic is an attractive option.
High gloss surface
Clear extruded sheet has a high gloss finish on both sides.
With excellent resistance to the elements, clear extruded acrylic sheet performs very well outside. No significant changes in appearance are expected over 10 years.
Extruded acrylic sheet is very easy to work with.
Extruded acrylic is suitable for vacuum forming making it a popular choice when complex shapes are required.
Clear extruded acrylic sheet and clear cast acrylic sheet are visually very similar but are two different materials each with advantages and disadvantages and each produced by very different manufacturing processes. Extruded clear acrylic sheet is produced by an extrusion process, acrylic resin pellets are heated to a molten mass which is continuously pushed through a die, the position of which determines the thickness of the sheet produced. Once through the die, the molten mass looses temperature and can be trimmed and cut to the required sheet sizes. The continuos nature of the extruded acrylic production process produces larger batches than that of cast acrylic production making it a more economical material.

What are polished edges?
When we cut an acrylic sheet to size, the saw blade/router toolbit produces a matte finish on the edges of the panel. We use a technique called diamond polishing to polish the edges to a bright, smooth and glossy finish.
Our diamond edge-polishing machine polishes the edge of acrylic by running a rotating, diamond tipped wheel along the edge of the material.
You can read more about the techniques used to polish Perspex® in our blog post, The Ultimate Guide to Polishing Perspex®.
