Optix is the tradename for Plaskolite's continuously processed, high-quality acrylic sheet. Optix Acrylic Sheet is ideal for almost any fabrication or glazing application. Optix exceeds industry standards for quality and safety and its impact-resistance will prohibit the sheet from shattering into sharp edged pieces like glass. Special U.V. stabilization protects the sheet from yellowing and is backed by a 10-year warranty.

Primary applications for Optix include fabrication, picture framing, skylights, displays, signage, lighting and point of purchase. Optix is available in colored, impact modified, green edged and patterned sheet. For fabricating convenience, Optix Acrylic Sheet can be ordered in custom sizes and thicknesses using Plaskolite's "Run-to-Size" program.
