Extruded Acrylic

Product Overview

Extruded Acrylic is our most competitively and economically priced acrylic sheet. It has excellent optical properties and brilliant transparency (which will not deteriorate in 10 years) therefore making it a great substitution for glass.
Extruded Acrylic is produced by pushing heated acrylic monomers through barrels where a chemical process takes place. This process means that Extruded Acrylic is more consistent in thickness across sheets than cast acrylic and is produced to a thickness tolerance of +/- 5-10%. It is easy to fabricate and is readily thermoformed with a lower melting point therefore making it easier to laser cut, rout and polishes more cost-effectively. It has excellent surface hardness, is recyclable
Williaam Cox cuts extruded acrylic panels to size using a circular saw and CNC machine. We stock sheets in clear and opal in thicknesses from 2mm to 25mm with a wider colour spectrum available to order from the brochure in the other tab above.
