Types Of Acrylic Plastic Sheet

Piedmont Plastics offers all of the plastic materials you need to complete your application. Some of our most popular products come in the form of acrylic plastic sheet. If you are looking for plastic sheet, trust Piedmont Plastics to provide quality products that will fit the application perfectly. Here are some of the more popular plastic sheet types we carry.

Cast Acrylic Sheet

Cast acrylic sheet combines clarity with strength. This clear plastic sheet is lightweight, impact resistant and durable. It can be fabricated easily into any desired shape, comes in many different colors, sizes, thicknesses and finishes, and works well for everything from display cases to windows.

Continuous Cast Acrylic Sheet

Continuous cast acrylic sheet is exceptionally clear and strong. It can be fabricated into just about any shape or size imaginable and comes in many different colors. It offers the benefit of consistent, uniform thickness throughout the entire sheet because of the manufacturing process.

Extruded Acrylic Sheet

This impact resistant plastic sheet is three times stronger than most double strength window glass yet weighs at least half as much. It works well for display cases, lighting, signage and framing, as well as many other applications. It can be either color tinted or crystal clear, depending on the need, and will not yellow or fade with time.

Sign Grade Acrylic Sheet

Sign grade acrylic sheet is designed to withstand years of outdoor display. It’s significantly stronger than window glass, and up to 10-times stronger than general-purpose acrylic. Sign grade acrylic is behavioral in a wide range of colors and impact blends depending on the goal. It is also an excellent material for light transmission from LEDs and other light sources for retail and hospitality sign applications.

Marine Grade Acrylic Sheet

Piedmont Plastics offers marine grade acrylic sheet that resists damage from impact and water exposure. This particular acrylic sheet is specifically designed for boat builders so that it will not break easily when screws are inserted to hold the boat together. It comes in a range of colors and can easily be formed into customized parts for boat manufacturing.

Acrylic Mirror Sheet

Acrylic mirror sheet is a lightweight thermoplastic sheet with a reflective surface. Unlike glass mirrors, it is scratch resistant and resists cracking or shattering, so it is safe for applications where traditional mirrors would be too heavy or dangerous. Many schools and other facilities that have children in them are replacing glass mirrors with acrylic mirror sheet to enhance safety.

Acrylic Shapes

Technically not plastic sheet, Piedmont Plastics offers a range of extruded acrylic shapes or profiles to help with a wide range of applications. Hinges, rods, tubes, z-bars and w-bars are some examples of the cast acrylic shapes offered at Piedmont. These are durable, can be transparent and are effective for building displays, exhibits and more.

Specialty Acrylic Sheet

Finally, Piedmont Plastics offers specialty acrylic sheet that is lightweight and cost effective as a replacement for glass. Our team will work with you to find the right specialty product, whether it is UV grade, plastic laminate and glass clad, AR grade or something else. Talk to a sales professional about your needs and let us point you to the plastic sheet that will fit best.
