Product description
This cast acrylic sheet has a high quality surface with a brilliant white homogenous appearance available in a range of translucencies, though it is relatively expensive.
The texture here is formed integral to the material during the casting process.
It can be complexly fabricated and is fully recyclable but contains no recycled content. It is available in large format sheets and a range of thicknesses.
A completely opaque version is unavailable in the most brilliant white due to the necessary addition of carbon black, giving a slightly smokey appearance.
Acrylic is an alternative to glass products in weight sensitive applications such as overhead glazing and is an excellent diffuser of light.
Acrylic products have a low scratch resistance but good impact resistance.
The product is fully recyclable.

Intended applications
• Internal cladding
• Overhead glazing
• Transactional surfaces
