Acrylic plastic, also known as plexiglass/PMMA, is a useful, clear material that resembles glass, but offers better transparency and weighs 50% less than glass of equal thickness. Acrylic is known as one of the clearest materials, offering a transparency rate of 93% and can be used in a wide variety of applications.
With its clarity, brilliance, and transparency, acrylic sheet has the same properties as glass, but at half the weight and many times the impact resistance. Aside from signs and skylights, acrylic plastics provide outstanding versatility, durability, and aesthetic qualities.
