Budget black acrylic looks like a standard acrylic sheet but is far more attractively priced. This lower price stems from the way in which black budget acrylic is made. In the production of regular acrylic, the liquid material is poured into the mould of a sheet (GS). In order to make more sheets with less product, budget acrylic is rolled into the correct shape (extruded, XT).
Pay attention: because of this production method, budget acrylic is not as easy to process as regular acrylic. This is because there is a higher internal tension on this type of acrylic due to the extrusion of the budget sheets. Do you want to be able to process your acrylic sheet without any worries? Then we recommend that you view our cast acrylic sheets.
Black budget acrylic is not translucent, and, of course, it is UV-resistant. That is why the sheet can be used both indoors and outdoors. Black budget acrylic is available in thicknesses 2 mm, 3 mm, 4 mm and 5 mm. The sheet has a thickness tolerance of approximately 10%. This means that there may be a slight deviation in the sheet thickness. Extruded sheets have a smaller chance of possible deviations in thickness than the cast version. Below, you will find more specifications of black budget acrylic.
Because black budget acrylic is an extruded (XT) material, extra caution is required when processing. Operations such as milling, engraving, glueing, polishing and sawing are possible, but pay close attention and be very careful because budget acrylic tears faster due to internal stress. Do you want to perform various operations without any worries? Then we recommend that you opt for a cast acrylic sheet. The risk of cracks is minimal with these sheets.
Black acrylic sheet is very suitable for advertising and design applications. In addition, black acrylic is widely used in interior and stand construction. Below, you will discover more applications of black acrylic.
