Cast Acrylic rod has uncommon optical clarity, outstanding light transmission and excellent weatherability. It is not affected by sunlight, resists aging and keeps good stability under variable conditions of cold, heat, moisture and exposure, it will not warp, crack, craze or corrode.

Cast Acrylic rod may be preferred for some industrial and commercial applications because it is more optically perfect than molded or extruded types of Acrylic products. It provides good tensile strength and excellent resistance to heat distortion. This clear rod can be used for machining or cementing and will fabricate like wood, metal or other plastics with standard equipment. Cast Acrylic rod is half the weight of comparable glass and has good shatter resistance and durability.

Acrylic is also available in tube or hollow round stock as well. Same great clarity as the sheet product but in a round form. In general, Acrylic tubing is made in 6 foot lengths as a standard. Please call your Alro Plastics representative for available sizes.
