Arkema Plexiglas® Arena AR

Plexiglas Arena Plexiglas Arena AR CELL CAST ACRYLIC SHEET Plexiglas Arena acrylic sheet is designed specifically for indoor arena glazing. It is made via the Plexiglas cell cast process which allows for the highest optical properties using state of the art acrylic sheet manufacturing technology. Plexiglas Arena acrylic sheet does not shatter like glass when broken. It is nearly half the weight of tempered glass which allows for quicker and easier change outs if needed. Plexiglas Arena sheet is available in two thicknesses full gauge 0.625 for the highest energy impact zone behind the goal area and full gauge 0.500 for the sides of the arena. For those heavy usage arenas an abrasion resistant version Plexiglas Arena AR acrylic sheet is also offered. Plexiglas Arena AR provides enhanced chemical resistance compared to uncoated sheet which will allow for easier cleaning and extended service life. n Conforms to ASTM F-1703 for Hockey Rink Glazing n Exceptional Optical Clarity n Little to no low angle distortion n Lightweight - Half the weight of glass n Fabricates just like standard cell cast acrylic Plexiglas Arena Plexiglas Arena AR CELL CAST ACRYLIC SHEET Typical Standard PROPERTIES PROPERTIES TEST METHOD UNIT VALUE in 0.625 Specific Gravity ASTM D-792 1.19 Rockwell Hardness ASTM D-785 M scale 100 Refractive Index ND 73F ASTM D-542 1.49 Luminous Transmittance ASTM D-1003 92.0 Taber Abrasion Initial Haze ASTM D-1044 2.0 Taber Abrasion Haze After 100 cycles Plexiglas Arena ASTM D-1044 20.0 Taber Abrasion Haze After 100 cycles Plexiglas ArenaAR ASTM D-1044 4.0 Taber Abrasion Haze After 500 cycles Plexiglas Arena ASTM D-1044 30.0 Taber Abrasion Haze After 500 cycles Plexiglas ArenaAR ASTM D-1044 7.0 PHYSICAL Nominal Thickness for data unless otherwise noted Optical 1 Abrasion Resistance Mechanical Tensile Strength maximum ASTM D-638 psi 10500 Tensile Strength yield ASTM D-638 psi 10500 Tensile Elongation ASTM D-638 4.9 Tensile Modulus of Elasti
