Description

Color Acrylic Sheets

The main difference between extruded plexiglass (acrylic) and cast plexiglass lies in their manufacturing processes, resulting in variations in optical clarity, thickness consistency, and cost. Here’s a breakdown of the key differences:

  1. Manufacturing Process:
    • Extruded Plexiglass: This type is produced through an extrusion process where the acrylic material is continuously pushed through a die, creating sheets of uniform thickness. The process is relatively quick and cost-effective.
    • Cast Plexiglass: Cast acrylic is made by pouring liquid acrylic into molds and allowing it to solidify (polymerize) into sheets. This method allows for greater control over the thickness and results in sheets with fewer internal stresses.
  2. Optical Clarity:
    • Extruded Plexiglass: While extruded sheets have good optical clarity, they may have slight variations in thickness, which can affect light transmission and overall clarity.
    • Cast Plexiglass: Cast sheets generally have exceptional optical clarity with minimal internal stresses. This makes them preferred for applications where transparency is crucial.
  3. Thickness Consistency:
    • Extruded Plexiglass: Extruded sheets may exhibit slight variations in thickness across the surface. Thicker sections may have slightly more color variation and reduced clarity.
    • Cast Plexiglass: Cast sheets offer more consistent thickness throughout, resulting in better optical properties. They are particularly suitable for applications requiring precision and uniformity.
  4. Surface Finish:
    • Extruded Plexiglass: Extruded sheets may have a smoother surface finish, making them suitable for certain applications where aesthetics are important.
    • Cast Plexiglass: Cast sheets may have a slightly textured surface due to the casting process. While this texture is usually minor, it can be noticeable in some applications.
  5. Cost:
    • Extruded Plexiglass: Extruded sheets are generally more cost-effective to produce, making them a budget-friendly option for applications where absolute optical clarity and precision are not critical.
    • Cast Plexiglass: Cast sheets are often more expensive due to the additional steps involved in the manufacturing process. They are chosen when superior optical properties and thickness consistency are essential.

Common Applications:

  • Extruded Plexiglass: Suitable for signs, displays, protective barriers, and applications where cost is a significant factor.
  • Cast Plexiglass: Preferred for applications requiring excellent optical clarity, such as museum displays, aquariums, architectural glazing, and high-end signage.

Choosing between extruded and cast plexiglass depends on the specific requirements of the application, considering factors such as cost, optical clarity, and thickness consistency.
