Acrylic Sheet & Acrylic Rod
OnlinePlastics stocks a huge inventory of acrylic materials. We offer cast and extruded acrylic sheet, acrylic rod, and acrylic tube. We have the right acrylic for a variety of needs, from display and signage to museum and framing applications to industrial manufacturing operations.
Acrylic materials are not affected by direct sunlight, so they will age well and maintain their stability under many environmental circumstances, including heat, cold, and moisture.
We offer acrylic sheets, acrylic rods, and acrylic tubes in clear, matte (satin ice), non-glare, and mirror finishes, as well as a wide range of opaque and translucent colors. A variety of coatings are available for application-specific needs.
If optical clarity is most important, cast acrylic provides optimum clarity and excellent light transmission along with good weathering ability. Our acrylic materials are available with special coatings to protect against UV rays and scratching. Acrylic is known for its durability, as it does not warp, craze, crack, or corrode.
