Specific Application 1
So you are thinking about purchasing acrylic sheets, those multi-purpose darlings of the construction world. There are many potential uses for this product. We have listed a few of them below.
- As a glass alternative, acrylic is a favorite. It is stronger, more lightweight, and shatter-resistant. It is also extremely moldable. Unlike glass, which is fragile and unyielding, acrylic can be bent and sculpted into different forms easily. Acrylic can be 2-3 times more impact resistant than a comparable piece of glass, and the varying thicknesses of acrylic available make it easy to customize strength for your project.
- Acrylic glass or “plexiglass” gives you all the benefits of glass – without the fright. Skylights are commonly made out of acrylic, which can also be treated to withstand harmful UV rays.
- Drill holes in acrylic without shattering the material. It just takes some foresight on your part. The ability of the acrylic to withstand the drill bit makes it a favorite for fabricators.
- Use acrylic as sign material. Cut small blocks of it into creative shapes for badges. Easily form clear acrylic sheets into a living space for fish – it’s the ideal component for aquariums. Even use it for lighting fixtures.
