Product description

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.

Key features:

  • Excellent thickness tolerance
  • Optical clarity
  • High gloss surface on both sides
  • Hard wearing
  • Weather resistant
  • Easy to bend and shape
  • Economical
  • Suitable for vacuum forming

Typical applications:

  • Point of sale
  • Retail display
  • Models
  • Display cases
  • Glazing

Detailed description:

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%.

Optical clarity

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.

Weather resistant

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.

Vacuum forming

Extruded acrylic is suitable for vacuum forming making it a popular choice when complex shapes are required.  

Production process

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.

Quality and cut to exactly the right size.

I use acrylic discs as windows for laser & phototherapy treatment heads. The discs that I buy need to be cut and finished to a high standard so that they can be further machined to fit the heads that I manufacture. The discs that I buy from Simply Plastics are the best that I have used. The accuracy of cutting and the quality of polishing make them the best that I have found.

I used this acrylic disc for a home project and found it to be of excellent quality, well packaged for transit and it came very quickly as well. Many thanks for an excellent service that I'd definitely recommend to others!

Ideal for use as replacement to glass disc on wall clock; great product, responsive service.

Great quality and great service. Prompt delivery.

I purchased some clear acrylic discs from simplyplastics for a home decorating project, they are exactly what I wanted. Excellent quality, precision engineered. Superb


Making press plates (followers) for Cheese Moulds. Spot on tolerance, excellent finish, quick delivery. Excellent!

I placed an order with Simply plastics to find I had made an error. I rang the sales desk and was greeted with a polite and friendly voice and i asked to change the dimensions of my order. The reply was no problems I will change that for you. It was changed and I received the order two days later - no better recommendation than that

The quality of the acrylic discs were perfect and exactly what I was hoping for. The service is fanatic very quick and always correct. I have used simply plastics a few times and will continue to use their service as their products are such good quality.

Excellent clarity, cut accurately to the specified dimensions. Used for a replacement clock face screen. Many thanks.

Very happy with the service and the quality of the top for our garden table. Will use you again and also recommended you to family and friends .

I used this as a pottery bat... fabulous!

Used this as a pottery batt... Excellent!

Excellent quality. Exactly what I needed. Will be coming back for more. Use these for artworks.

I ordered discs and rods to make doll stands. Discs had to be 45mm dia, 3mm thick and a 6mm clearance hole drilled in the centre. As the rod could not be cut to the 60mm lengths they sent extra to enable me to do so. Quality of product was excellent as was the finish. Easy to order as well. Plenty of options to choose from and in small quantities too. Couldn't fault them!

This is the second time we have used this company and we would again in the future. The plastic cirxles were for our old barrels and they look great. Our table in thevgarden also has a plastic top now which is still going strong two years later. Great stuff.

The product was of high standard and ready on time Used as part of art piece. So good quality was required Will use again

Varying sizes of Clear Acrylic Disc for use as fronts for special picture frames made from aircraft parts. Good quality, accurate sizing, polished edges and with film protection on both sides. Definitely recommended and will use again.for other items as well.

I used this to replace a broken glass on a small clock insert, an old lady friend of mine knocked from her shelf. The clock was of sentimental value to the woman, so this replacement was perfect, thank you brilliant product, very happy

I plan to use the tubes and discs to make base structures which will be covered in epoxy clay. These will be used a masters which will have casts created in silicone before being turned into resin bud/stem vases. (Not your average use! LOL!). I haven't had time to get them finished but have attached the base to the tube using epoxy clay and this had adhered well - so far so good. The cuttings of the tubes and discs were accurate and fit perfectly together. Thank you!! xx

Perfectly cut to size and shape, and arrived well packed and in great condition. For the price, pretty amazing.

Brought this for my display project. Great value and quality and brilliant service. Would def use again and recommend to friends and family.
