Acrylic sheet is widely used as a replacement for glass. It is not only just as clear, but also much cheaper, twice as light and thirty times stronger than ordinary glass. This Clear extruded (XT) acrylic sheet is clear in colour and 5mm thick. This makes this material suitable for various applications, such as table decoration or shower screens. You can also use it as display cases. Do you want to process it in various ways without any worries? Then we recommend that you opt for a moulded acrylic sheet.
Clear extruded (XT) acrylic sheets have a number of important properties. The sheet is clear in colour and has a maximum surface area of 200 x 100 cm. The sheet has no thickness tolerance; this means that the thickness of the plate does not actually differ from the thickness stated on this page: 5mm. The sheet has a high UV resistance and is weather resistant.

Budget acrylic sheet is made from extruded acrylic (XT). Due to the method of production, there is more tension on the sheet, which means that it can tear faster during processing. Drilling, hot bending, milling, engraving, glueing, polishing and sawing are all possible, but be extremely careful. Do you want to do much processing? Then we recommend that you opt for a moulded acrylic sheet. With these sheets, the chance of cracking is minimal.
Budget acrylic sheet is UV resistant. This means you can use it for both indoor and outdoor applications. Think for example of kitchen splashbacks, windbreaks and door canopies
