Acrylic plastic sheet is completely transparent, flexible and has great resistance to breakage. It is an excellent material which can replace glass for windows, doors, partitions and skylights. It is lightweight, with only half the weight of glass, and it is virtually unaffected by nature. Acrylic sheet is supplied in general purpose grades and in many special grades formulated to meet specific physical requirements. Most formulations are supplied in a variety of transparent, translucent, and opaque colors as well as colorless transparents. The material is also supplied in a number of surface patterns.
