Brief Introduction Of Acrylic Sheets

Acrylic sheet is one of the thermoplastic sheet, which is made of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), it is well known by the trade name “plexiglass sheet“. It is a versatile plastic sheet with a variety of purposes and benefits, which is produced according to extrusion process and casting process, therefore, some people call it as “extruded acrylic sheet” and “cast acrylic sheet”. This material is similar to polycarbonate sheets, but better price and surface hardness, and lower impact strength.

Acrylic sheet was first produced in 1928 and was brought to market by Rohm and Haas Company in 1933. At the very beginning, it is used as airplane windows, turrets, and canopies during the Second World War. Today, the acrylic sheet has become to be the most commonly used plastic material in our daily life, such as security barriers, medical devices, furniture, POP display, office supplies, fish tank, etc.

Acrylic sheets are available in a wide range of thicknesses, colors and provide superior weather ability. Otherwise, it offers new functions by coating layers, for example, higher surface hardness, better abrasive resistance, mirror surface, anti-static and non-glare function.

UVACRYLIC is a leading manufacturer of acrylic in China, the annual production capability is over 12 thousand tons, meantime, we provide the integrated machining service. Our all raw materials are from Mitsubishi and Lucite, with the strict quality management system, our all acrylic sheets are high-quality and environmentally-friendly. Today, we are honored to supply high-quality acrylic-based products and integrated machining service to more than 1200 clients from 40 countries.

Yes, acrylic is safe for food, it is commonly used for food handing and display purposes.

There are two popular manufacturing processes to get an acrylic/plexiglass sheet. For the right choice, you need to know their thicknesses, sizes, prices, and properties. For more detail, please see this ultimate guide for Cast VS Extruded Acrylic Sheet.

Plexiglass sheet is rapidly taking over the glass and being used as a replacement of it widely. However, this is not a glass material at all. Acrylic is a polymethyl methacrylate plastic-type, which offers far more strength and workability than the glass material.

These plastics can be used as a better replacement for any glass applications like mirrors, glasses, door glass, sky windows, and all.

Acrylic sheet isn’t expensive, it is 10%-30% cheaper than polycarbonate sheet. Normally, the unit price is about 3 USD or 4 USD per kilogram.

Please check the following table:

AdvantageDisadvantage
25 times as strong as glassEasier to be scratched than glass
Half weight of glass 
Acrylic sheet is cheaper than polycarbonate and glass 
Easy to fabricate and thermoform 
Plexiglass is hardwearing 
Acrylic is safer than glass 
Inartificial UV resistant 
Weather-resistant 

For a small quantity and thin plexiglass, you can use a knife to cut, but for a bulk of plexiglass sheets, you can use a saw, laser cutting machine, Know more information about how to cut plexiglass sheet.

UVACRYLIC offers three tolerance standards:

Tolerance ONE:

UVACRYLIC uses continuous casting technology, therefore, we can control the thickness tolerance is ±0.15mm, but the real tolerance is only ±0.1.

Tolerance TWO:

For extruded plexiglass sheet, the thickness tolerance is ±0.1

Tolerance THREE:

For a normal cast acrylic sheet, please see the following list for the thickness tolerance:

Yes, Plexiglass sheet can block UV, but not all acrylic sheets can block UV. Therefore, you need to tell you the requirement to our sales manager before ordering.

UVACRYLIC is a leading manufacturer of acrylic sheets in China. With more than 15 years of experience, we have grown to be a ONE-STOP supplier and provide acrylic sheets in all forms.

Yes, acrylic sheet is entirely waterproof, you can use it to makes a superior exterior shell for many products and keep your products completely dry. Additionally, it has a high heat tolerance.

Unlike polycarbonate, acrylic sheet offers inartificial UV resistance, therefore, it doesn’t turn yellow and keeps good clarity. But recycled acrylic will turn yellow in 5 or 6 years. UVACRYLIC always uses virgin material to manufacture PMMA sheets, that won’t turn yellow in 15 years.

Normally, UVPLASTIC will put the protective films on both sides, which can protect the acrylic sheets from scratching when delivering. There are two types of films that can be chosen, kraft paper and clear PE film. Maybe, here, you want to know how to remove protective film from plexiglass sheet.

Polycarbonate panels and acrylic plexiglass sheet are similar, they are often considered as solutions for a wide range of optical applications. And what is the difference? And how to choose?

Both polycarbonate and acrylic plexiglass are both plastics, they are the half weight of glass with the same volume. They are also 100% clear and offer excellent impact resistance.

Polycarbonate panel is near 20 times stronger than acrylic plexiglass sheet, but the acrylic plexiglass sheet offers a harder surface and better price than polycarbonate panel. Therefore, polycarbonate panels are often used for application where high impact resistance is needed, such as riot shield and bulletproof glass, and plexiglass sheets are used for decoration, display, noise barrier.

ItemAcrylic, Plexiglass, PMMA SheetPolycarbonate Panel
Advantage10%-30% better price than polycarbonate;
Easier to be polished, clean edges;
Better anti-scratch than polycarbonate;
Easier to glue;
Max. thickness is more than 50mm or more;
More flexible than acrylic;
Stronger than plexiglass sheet;
Excellent heat resistance than acrylic;
Good flame retardance;
Can be cold-bent;
Min. thickness is 0.05mm;
Can be packaged to polycarbonate roll;
DisadvantageCan’t cold-bent;
Could be broken during drilling;
The Min. thickness is 1mm;
Easy to scratch;
Max. thickness is 20mm;

It is easy to calculate, the density of acrylic is 1.2, you can get the weight 10.7Kg, the volume multiply by density.

Plexiglass sheets and acrylic sheets are the same things, but some people like to call it “Plexiglass sheets”. Otherwise, some people also call it a PMMA sheet.​

Acrylic sheet is rapidly taking over the glass and being used as a replacement of it widely. However, this is not a glass material at all. Acrylic is a polymethyl methacrylate plastic type, which offers far more strength and workability than the glass material.

These plastics can be used as a better replacement for any glass applications like mirrors, glasses, door glass, sky windows, etc.

They are the flat clear sheet that is used for building, but plexiglass offers higher impact resistance and better machinability, know more about the difference between plexiglass and glass.

Most acrylic sheets can be used to display products and acrylic boxes, mirrors, picture frames, acrylic furniture, acrylic aquarium, etc. To know more about the application of acrylic sheets.

You can get acrylic sheets or plexiglass sheets by cast process and extruded process, but cast acrylic sheet is totally different from extruded acrylic sheet, please see the following difference in China market:

1. Thickness Sacope

No.ItemThickness Scope
1Cast plexiglass sheetFrom 2mm to 50mm, Max. Thickness is up to 250mm
2Extruded plexiglassFrom 0.8mm to 6mm

2. Thickness Tolerance

Normally, the thickness tolerance of cast plexiglass is about 10%. And extruded plexiglass has 1-2% only.

3. Surface

Cast plexiglass sheet has a better surface than extruded plexiglass until it is manufactured in a duty-free workshop.

4. Light Transmittance

Cast plexiglass sheet offers higher light transmittance than extruded plexiglass in the same thickness.

5. Size

Normally, the cast plexiglass sheet offers standard sizes, such as 1.22×2.44m, 2.05×3.05m. The extruded acrylic sheet offers standard width, the length is flexible.

6. Minimum Order Quantity

The MOQ of extruded acrylic sheet is 2 tons or 3 tons, and the MOQ of cast plexiglass sheet is small.
