Black Acrylic Sheets
Black Acrylic Sheets. Comparable to Plexiglas, acrylic is a lightweight, rigid plastic that resists breakage better than glass and offers excellent weather resistance. Nominal size saw cuts. Plexiglas acrylic sheets are perfect for window replacements, signage, displays, aquarium covers, and many more DIY projects. This is stronger than glass and weighs half the weight as glass. This can be used to put on a table for protection. We can cut many different custom shapes, laser cuts and silk screening.
Acrylic is produced in two basic versions, cast and extruded. Cast acrylic is produced by mixing the acrylic liquid ingredients in molds. For acrylic plates between two glass plates. A chemical process in the mold create a homogeneous material with equivalent properties in all directions.
The linear dimensions of our sheets are nominal and they have a tolerance of +-1/8" in each direction (length and width). Therefore the dimensions you request will be within the tolerance stated. Additionally, the industry standard on thickness of the plastic varies by few hundredths of an inch.
Plastic refers to a group of synthetic or semi-synthetic materials that have been engineered to achieve specific properties. The most notable characteristics of plastics are its low weight, machinability, corrosion resistance, and typically good thermal and electrical insulating properties. Certain plastic grades also offer optical transparency similar to glass, low-friction or self-lubricating surfaces, and exceptional impact resistance. Depending on their properties, certain plastic grades can be used as alternatives to metal, glass, and ceramic. Unlike metal, plastic may experience creep, which is deformation caused by longtime exposure to a constant load.
Tensile strength, used to indicate the material’s overall strength, is the peak stress it can withstand before it breaks. Corrosion resistance describes the material's ability to prevent deterioration caused by atmosphere, moisture, or other medium. Wear resistance indicates the ability to prevent surface damage caused by contact with other surfaces. Toughness describes the material's ability to absorb energy before breaking, while hardness (commonly measured as indentation hardness) describes its resistance to permanent surface deformation. Impact resistance is the measure of a material’s ability to absorb a shock of energy before breaking.
