RS Pro Extruded Acrylic Solid Plastic Sheets

From RS Pro a range of high-quality extruded acrylic solid plastic sheets available in a range of sizes and thicknesses.

What are Solid Plastic Sheets?

Solid plastic sheets are sheets of strong durable plastic or plastic like materials which are cut to size and sold in a wide range of sizes and thickness. These hard plastic sheets, once purchased, can then be cut or machined into components for the fabrication of products for use in a wide range of industries. Different plastics have different properties which lend them for use in specific applications

What is Acrylic?

Acrylic also known as polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) is a clear engineering thermoplastic which is often used as a glass substitute. This type of plastic is more flexible, lighter and stronger than glass with a higher impact strength. It is also safer as it does not shatter into small pieces like glass. This also reduces damage to goods in transit saving costs. Acrylic plastic sheeting is also easy to work with and can be curved and formed into a variety of shapes and configurations and cut into extremely fine shapes using laser cutting technology.

What are the Advantages of Extruded Acrylic Sheet?

Extruded acrylic is produced by stretching so its properties are preserved in one direction. It has a consistent thickness across the sheet making it ideal for fabrication.

Features and Benefits

• Very good optical clarity
• Good impact resistance and shatterproof
• High surface hardness and durability
• Good UV and environmental stability
• Excellent long-term weather resistance
• Good chemical resistance
• Lightweight
• High light transmission
• Flexible and easy to cut, glue, polish and bend

What Industries is Extruded Acrylic Plastic Sheet used in?

This extruded clear acrylic plastic sheet with its unique properties and ease of use is suitable for use in a wide range of industries including the following;

• Transportation Industry
• Electrical
• Exhibition and trade show services
• Food processing and handling
• Framing and mounting
• Plastic and metal fabrication
• Recreation
• Signage

What Applications is Extruded Acrylic Plastic Sheet used in?

Acrylic solid plastic sheet is useful for applications requiring high light transmission and transparency and is often used as a glass replacement. Its excellent weather proof properties and impact resistance make it ideal for use in both indoor and outdoor applications. Applications include the following;

• POS signs and displays
• Advertising displays
• Brochure holders
• Display and exhibition cases
• Electrical enclosures
• Lighting and light boxes
