Acrylic Sheets Ireland Explained
When giant carbon molecules combine chemically, the polymer called Acrylic is produced.Finished acrylic sheet have up to 10 times the impact resistance and half the weight of glass, while showing glass like qualities in relation to translucence, openness, clarity and radiance. Acrylic sheets can be made opaque, coloured, tinted or mirrored. A variety of finishings can be put on a sheet or finished part for performance boosting features such as scratch resistance, anti-fogging, glare decrease and solar reflective.
Due to the fact that it's a thermoplastic and softens under extremely high temperatures, acrylic can be formed to virtually any shape. Exceptionally durable, acrylic is an appropriate option over a broad temperature range, and has superior weathering homes compared to other plastics.
