Acrylic

 

A&C Plastics stocks various grades of acrylic sheet, such as extruded, continuous cast and cell cast in hundreds of colors in various thicknesses and sizes. Clear, tinted and colored acrylic sheets are available from 48" to 108" wide, and from 72" to 192" in length.

Ideal for POP displays, store fixtures, glazing and general fabrication, acrylic sheet offers manufacturers, fabricators and designers a high-optical product with exceptional strength and durability. It delivers exceptional cost savings through down-gauging without sacrificing the structural integrity of your application. Further cost reductions are achieved through faster fabrication, lower shipping & handling, and reduced breakage.

Acrylic sheet is ideal for applications requiring the beauty and clarity of acrylic where a traditionally higher impact product is required. It maintains its consistent clear edge color before and after fabrication, giving fixtures and displays a desired elegance that is lost with other impact modified materials that impart an "industrial" look.

The material resists yellowing and fading and offers superior dimensional stability.

Antistatic (ESD) Acrylic sheet

Antistatic (ESD) acrylic sheets are coated with a transparent metal/plastic material that will permanently prevent formation of static electricity on the surface. The surface has excellent mar and abrasion resistance. It is also resistant to charge generation, has superior static decay characteristics and cannot be tribocharged. The product displays excellent control of both electrostatic discharge and particulate attraction. Permanent characteristics are not affected by humidity.

APPLICATIONS

Antistatic (ESD) acrylic plastic is a sound choice for manufacturing applications where effects of electrostatic discharge could cause rejects or hidden latent damage to sensitive electronic devices. This product is widely used in the semi-conductor, electronic and micro-manufacturing industries.

It is also used in other industrial applications such as screen assembly, packaging, explosive environments where static discharge must be prevented and applications where sensitive process instrumentation and equipment must be protected from static charge.

The acrylic sheet may be fabricated into a wide variety of shapes using the same equipment used for uncoated sheet products. The product is not suitable, however, for most heatformed configurations because the hard cross-linked polymer surface is not designed for heat bending.

When gluing it is necessary to mechanically remove the coating surface to insure a good bond. More information about fabrication is provided in the Technical Information Bulletin. Some applications have included covers, guards, access panels, machine windows and doors, static control shields, glove boxes, electronic equipment, process instrumentation, conveyor line covers, cleanroom windows and doors, partitions, and pass through modules
