Extruded acrylic sheet and cast acrylic sheet are all belongs to acrylic products, but here is some different points as the different production method, as following is the details introduction for 2 type sheet:
The transparency for Cast acrylic sheet is more than 98%, Extruded acrylic sheet >92%
Light Transmission >92% for 100% virgin raw material
1. Cast Acrylic: engraving display, kitchen & bathroom furniture, construction decoration, work of arts etc
2. Extrusion Acrylic are widely used for advertising sheet, light box etc
Color & thickness:
The color for extruded acrylic sheet currently we mainly produce clear color for normal size 1220 x 2440, width 1.22-1.30m, and thickness range 1-5mm, the feature is easy to heating processing, in addition, the thickness tolerance for extruded acrylic sheet is lower than cast acrylic sheet as it is high-volume automated production, so the color and specification is inconvenient to adjust.
1. Very good transparency
Clear acrylic sheet is colorless and transparent, its transparency is the topmost one in all plastic, its transmittance is more than >92% for 100% virgin raw material.
2. Good weather resistance
Good adaptability to natural environment, long time under sunlight, wind and rain, its property will not change, Good aging resistance, it can be used safely outdoors.
3. Good mechanical processability
Good dimension stability, the product will be beautiful and smooth after formation processing or fitting processing.
4. Light, safe in use
Comparing with glass, its density is the half of glass, but the effects of use are just the same. Moreover, it will not scatter even if its break, so it is safe in use, because of this advantage, it is used widely as construction material to substitute ceramics.
It won`t do harm to users, even for long time use, Gases emitted during burning are not poisonous.
6. Easy to process
Very easy to carry out the secondary processing, such as heating processing, mechanical processing, vacuum shaping, printing and coating.
