Clear extruded acrylic sheet is a high quality material with a light transmission higher than that of nearly all other thermoplastic materials with the exception of 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 excellent thickness tolerance meaning there is little variation in thicknesses within the same sheet of material, this 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 optical optical optical 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.

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.

For enquiries regarding any project from prototypes to large production runs, please get in touch to discuss your requirements.

What are polished edges?

When we cut an acrylic sheet to size, the saw blade produces a matte finish on the edges of the panel. We use a technique called diamond polsihing 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.

How do I clean acrylic?

  1. Blow or lightly brush away any dust and loose dirt from the surface of the acrylic
  2. Using a mild solution of lukewarm water and washing up liquid clean the surface of more resistant dirt and grime.
  3. Rinse with clean water.
  4. Blot dry with a microfibre cloth to prevent water spotting.

Windows in a garden arbour - arrived having been bumped by the courier that had taken a small sliver out of each sheet but was useable and not your fault - has stood up well to a very windy site - would definitely recommend to others

Michael 09/02/2016 18:55:44

Good quality product, can recommend to others. Used in shed window

michael braid 09/02/2016 09:39:39

the product was used to replace glass in a very old greenhouse. most of the replaced panes stood up to winds, but two did not.that was due to my measuring and the lack of rigidity. larger SHEETS NEED THICKER IE 3MM NOT 2MM GOOD PRICE AND DELIVERY

Steve 09/02/2016 08:13:17

Used as a cover for a blackboard to make an easy wipe clean surface for chalk pens, faultless service

Mr C Collins 08/02/2016 21:50:16

I ordered 63 acrylic windows for my summerhouse. Since buying and fitting we have had several named storms with gales etc (Including today) and the windows are all fine. No damage at all so far. I am very pleased with my purchase and how quickly my order was made and delivered. I couldn't fault the fast service and all but two panes fitted perfectly, the two that were ''slightly'' big I cut with a hacksaw and they then also fitted perfectly, that might have been me ordering those two panes slightly bigger than I intended but it was no problem. I also ordered a larger piece of acrylic for a picture frame which also fitted perfect. I was extremely happy with both the service and the quality of the windows.

Sbux 08/02/2016 21:36:35

Yes I would recommend to others.

George Millington 19/06/2015 13:42:44
