Acrylic Glass is a rigid, transparent material that is naturally colourless and exceptionally clear. Consequently, it is suitable for all types of light/colour permeability or dispersion.
Its resistance to numerous aggressive chemical agents makes it the reference plastic for resistance to light and weathering. Acrylic Glass panels can be machined using industrial, manual or artistic processes.
item Acrylic Glass panels are made using the casting method to ensure a particularly high-quality appearance. Polishing produces very high-gloss finishes.
Acrylic Glass XT in extruded quality has slightly lower mechanical and thermal load-carrying capacities than cast panels and slightly poorer visual properties. In many applications, it can be an economical alternative to cast quality panels.
When using Acrylic Glass panels with other materials (aluminium, steel), the different thermal expansions should be taken into account. In principle, the various values relate to measurements conducted on colourless, transparent test samples.
Acrylic Glass demonstrates good resistance to water, alkalis and aqueous solutions containing inorganic salts. Certain dilute acids such as prussic acid and hydrogen fluoride corrode Acrylic Glass, as do concentrated sulphuric, nitric and chromic acids.
