Why Acrylics?

 

The full name for acrylic is polymethylmethacrylate & we sell it in cast or extruded forms of block, sheet, rod, tube, profiles and injection moulded fabrication aids.

We can supply orders of just one tiny piece for fabrication, through to massive single cast blocks weighing over 6 tons for architectural projects.

Acrylic Shapes

Acrylic is very easy to fabricate using modern & traditional machining techniques.

It is easily cut, machined, polished, glued, bonded into larger panels or lengths and can be thermoformed and injection moulded. We can offer advice and supply data sheets if required.

 

 

Where is it used?

Acrylic is used in many areas such as point of sale displays, the aquarium industry, engineering, art & design, television & film, nuclear & medical industries, architecture & signage to name just a few.
