Acrylic plastic

Acrylic plastic is an amorphous material supplied by Ensinger in standard stock shapes for machining and fabricating. Acrylic is vastly used worldwide as a glass substitute due to its valuable properties. Acrylic material is more flexible, lighter and stronger than glass whilst still having excellent optical clarity, good chemical resistance and weathering properties. Ensinger supplies cast and extruded acrylic material in a range of clears, opals and colours. Extruded acrylic is the material choice for a number of applications in the sign and display and fabrication industries due to its ease of working. Whereas, with greater mechanical properties, cast acrylic is preferred for machining.
