Technical Advice & FEA
Over 20 years of experience in the trade enables us to confidently offer technical advice to our customers on most areas of acrylic fabrication.
We have vast experience of using numerous resins and glues in the acrylics market and carry out extensive research and testing to ensure we achieve strong clear bonds & joints.
At Alternative Plastics we pride ourselves in our high attention to detail and always aim for perfect results.
We produce and sell our own brand of solvent adhesives for general acrylic fabrication purposes and the range also includes adhesives for PVC, Polycarbonate & Polystyrene.
We can provide technical advice to customers wishing to build aquarium applications or anything pressure related.
With Finite Element Analysis software and extensive knowledge and experience we can check designs for any pressure weakness and offer advice on strengthening solutions or minimum material thicknesses for your application.
What ever you need, we can help.
