Acrylic, also known as Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA), is a thermoplastic that can be formed into a number of shapes, making it suitable for use in a broad range of industries and products. Polymershapes offers a full-line of extruded and cast acrylic sheet products for many applications, including signage, displays, skylights and more.
Acrylic offers glass-like properties such as clarity, brilliance and translucence, but is much lighter and much more durable. Acrylic is easy to form, with high impact resistance, excellent transparency, and superior weatherability. Additionally, coatings can be applied to acrylic to enhance its functionality, scratch-resistance, anti-fog, or reflective characteristics.
Available in various texture and color options, Polymershapes can provide the right acrylic sheeting for your application. Whether you require optical clarity and light transmission, shatter-resistant clear acrylic sheets for security purposes, or another type of acrylic sheet, Polymershapes offers the widest range of acrylic products on the market, from trusted manufacturing partners.
