Basic Acrylic Plastic Material Characteristics / Property

1. Outstanding cold and hot weather resistance ability, color won’t be disseminated and faded in years when exposing to the air.
2. Clear plexiglass cast acrylic sheet: Transmittance achieve at high level at 92%. Opal plexiglass cast acrylic sheet: Obtained excellent efficiency in light diffusion

3. Bright and rigid surface clear acrylic plastic sheet, offer a variety of color selection: Glossy to matted finished side.
4. The acrylic sheet’s solid surface is as hard as Aluminum material, close to its scratches resistant ability.
5. Well performed in custom clear acrylic plastic sheet design fabrication, easy to bend free form acrylic sheet using heat.
6. Excellent in chemical resistance property
7. Stable uv acrylic sheet physical property, suitable for any kinds of usage, construction projects…etc.
8. Plastic acrylic is light in weight and safer than glass.
9. Easy to clean clear acrylic plastic sheet.
10. Clear acrylic plastic sheets can be recycled, green environment friendly.

Acrylic Sheet Flammability / Combustibility

1. Acrylic sheet is Grade B2 rating (DIN 4102) flammable/ combustible material; it is not resistant to fire and should be kept away from fire. However, acrylic sheet can be polished by flame.
2. The acrylic burning speed is similar to hard wood. With advantage of no thick smoke during the burning and won’t smolder after fire extinguishing.
3. When burning, the flame is stable for cast acrylic sheet; on the contrary, the extrude sheet will have flame drops.
4. The flame of flame retardant grade acrylic sheet distinguished when removed from the fire point, but it creates more smoke during burning.

Acrylic Sheet Storage

1. Store acrylic sheets with protective film (PE film with pressure sensitive adhesive or paper masking on the back)
2. Place them upright (about 10 degree angle), keep 30 centimeter away from the separating board.
3. Avoid placing horizontally.
4. Store in a cool, dry ventilated room under suitable temperature range.

Acrylic Plastic Material Safety Instruction

1. Acrylic sheet belongs to hard material, be aware of sharp edges and prevent eyes being injured when forming the sheet through masking removal method. Put on appropriate facility to protect when molding.
2. Acrylic sheet is flammable material, pay attention to fire and explosion.
3. Avoid overheating situation from happening during heat up acrylic sheet process, as it is easy to produce flammable gas as it is not heat resistant. Keep the room ventilated.
4. Thermoforming facility must have protective devices.

Acrylic Sheet Mechanical Fabrication

General principle: The plastic acrylic sheet fabrication mechanical property is similar to brass, hard Aluminum, hard wood. But here are three points to be mentioned.
1. Sheets become soft when heating temperature over 80 degree range. High heat will be produced during the mechanical fabrication procedure, which
2. During the plastic acrlyic sheet mechanical fabrication procedure will produce high heat
3. When heating temperature over 80 degree range, sheet become soft. During the mechanical fabrication procedure will produce high heat that is easy to make acrylic sheet stressed. In this situation, acrylic sheet is easy to be break. Therefore, suitable cooling method is a must.
