Key Features and Benefits of Cast Acrylic

Cast acrylic is the premier plastic choice for those looking for superior clarity and strength in their applications. Our clear cast acrylic is transparent, impact resistant, moisture resistant, and half the weight of glass, yet 17 times stronger. In addition, cast acrylic boasts a higher optical clarity than glass, but it is also 10 times more shatter resistant. We also offer non-glare P99 acrylic, which helps maximize clarity and reduce light reflection at different angles. 

Cast acrylic is extremely versatile, and can be easily shaped, machined, or laser cut to your exact specifications. It is available in many sizes, thicknesses, finishes, and is easily thermoformed to meet your needs. Lastly, cast acrylic possesses a higher molecular weight than its extruded acrylic counterpart, resulting in a better resistance to crazing when exposed to solvents and a harder surface.
