Acrylic Abrasion Resistant Sheet Description
Acrylic, also known as Plexiglass, Lucite, or Perspex, Acrylite, and Optix is a versatile plastic material with a variety of purposes and benefits, available in a spectrum of colors and opacities. Acrylic plastic was first produced in 1928 and brought to the market by Rohm and Haas Company around 1933. It was initially used during World War II for products such as airplane windows, canopies, and turrets.
Acrylic is an extremely durable material that is 10x times stronger than glass. Because of its resistance to high pressure and impact. As well as its incredible resistance to weather and temperature, acrylic is a great alternative to glass.
Attaches with solvent cement to facilitate wall mounting. Sawtooth hangers are small brackets that attach to the back of a picture frame with small screws. Notches in the hanger allow for multiple positioning points. You can use just one frame hanger mounted at the center of the frame or two frame hangers at opposite corners of the frame.
Acrylic Sheet AR, also known as mar-resistant, is a continuously manufactured acrylic sheet with an abrasion-resistant coating on one, or both sides, offering 40 times greater resistance to marring and chemical attack than uncoated acrylic. It also provides outstanding optics.
