Extruded Acrylic Sheets Market: Overview
- Extruded acrylic sheets are manufactured through the continuous production method. Extruded acrylic sheets are more cost effective and malleable than cast acrylic; as a result, they are preferred for general fabrication. Additionally, these sheets are dimensionally stable with consistent thickness across sheets.
- Extruded acrylic sheets are available in a wide range of thicknesses and sheet sizes. Major types of extruded acrylic sheets include transparent, semitransparent, and colored sheets. Extruded acrylic sheets offer resistance to cold, heat, humidity, and sunlight.
- Extruded acrylic sheets are about half the weight of glass. They are moisture resistant. Transparent extruded acrylic sheets are clearer than glass and maintain original color and appearance. Extruded acrylic sheets possess various properties such as flexibility, thermoformability, and UV resistance.
