This strong material is just as clear as glass, but much less breakable. Plexiglass-Acrylate is 25 times stronger than glass, cheaper and a lot lighter than glass. In short: the ideal replacement for customised glass. This variant is clear in colour, so you can easily see through it.

Do you want to edit the plexiglass? Then go for the moulded plexiglass variant. Are you not going to apply any further treatments? Then this budget-friendly plexiglass variant will also suffice and it saves on your wallet.

In addition to the above benefits, the acrylic plexiglass sheets are weather resistant. This means that they can be used both indoors and outdoors for various applications such as nameplates, bells or as windlights. We cut the panels to size for you and deliver them to your home within a few working days. That is really handy.

Plexiglass-Acrylate XT clear; what is it?

It is one of the most popular plastics. This is because it is an excellent substitute for glass. It is up to 25 times stronger than glass, making it a lot safer. It is also much cheaper than glass and much lighter. Plexiglass-Acrylate XT is UV-resistant and easy to keep clean. But be careful with scratches. Plexiglass-Acrylate XT has a long life span and is colourfast. Plexiglass-Acrylate XT is also known in the market as acrylic, Perspex or PMMA.

The designation XT stands for the way it is produced. Plexiglass can be cast (GS) or extruded (XT). The Plexiglass-Acrylate XT sheets have a higher stress in the material. Cast sheets have little or no tension. In practice, this makes an XT sheet more difficult to process. The production process of XT sheets is less labour-intensive and therefore the sheet is more favourable to the price.

We supply various thicknesses cut to size. The possibilities are: 3 mm, 4 mm, 5 mm, 6 mm, 8 mm and 10 mm.
