The Acrylic Sheet: A Revolutionary Innovation in Plastic

Is it even necessary to list the ways acrylic sheets have changed the world? You see the proof of it all around you, in every industry. Every home, every office, every shop: acrylic plastic materials have
become a key component of the infrastructure of every life, and we continue to discover new uses for the material. That’s why having an industry leader such as Solutions In Plastic on your team can be the key to your success. We offer the best acrylic sheet solutions in Australia.

Acrylic Sheets Through the Ages

So-called “safety glass”; was first introduced to the market in the 1930’s, based on experiments with polymer materials that began as far back as the 19th century. Its shatterproof qualities were put to the test in World War 2 when it was used as an alternative to glass to maximise the safety of Allied troops and aircrews. You may not be aware of it, but it was a ball of clear acrylic sheeting that surrounded and protected the nose gunners of the famed B-17 Flying Fortresses.

The material came through with flying colours, and the post-war period saw an explosion in applications for acrylic sheets throughout military, industry, and everyday life. Today, you can find acrylic sheets everywhere: in the window panels for skyscrapers; bulletproof security barriers; signs and displays; LCD screens. In fact, clear acrylic sheets are also what makes modern aquariums possible.

Stronger than glass and less than half its weight, clear acrylic sheets are easy to fabricate and weld, and are available in a variety of colours. Acrylic can be moulded into both rods and sheets, and can be laser-etched to achieve stunning effects. Acrylic sheets are safe for storing food and, with their excellent weathering properties, offer a long, scratch-resistant lifespan for both indoor and outdoor
applications.

Thanks to all these capabilities, acrylic sheets have found a wide range of uses that include marine windows, signage, point of sale, retail, entertainment and more.
