More About Cast Acrylic

Cast acrylic is not affected by moisture or sunlight and has a high strength to weight ratio. It is approximately half the weight of glass but many times stronger. Cast acrylic also resists alkalis, inorganic acids, most detergents and cleaning solutions. We have acrylic that will block ultraviolet rays or let them pass through. The machining qualities of cast acrylic are much superior to extruded plastic as well as its resistance to heat distortion, clarity, and higher tensile strength. It can also be heat formed without the loss of clarity. We also handle a full line of medical grade rods and tubes. Please browse our website to see our complete inventory of acrylic rods and tubes. We can custom make many items. For more information email us at info@coloredplastics.com or call 515-957-9367.
