PMMA (Acrylic) Film, Sheets, Tubes & Rods
Nationwide Plastics offers PMMA/acrylic and acrylic glass sheets, film, tubes and rods in a variety of colors. PMMA or Polymethyl methacrylate, more commonly known as acrylic or acrylic glass, is one of the most economical and easily fabricated plastics for aesthetic applications - often considered an economical alternative to polycarbonate (when extreme strength is not needed). Many people also refer to acrylic as Plexiglass, Acrylite, Lucite , Perspex and other trade names. Acrylic is available in a variety of translucent and opaque colors. The light weight (less than 50% as heavy as glass) and high impact resistance (6-17 times the impact resistance of glass) make it the material of choice for displays, glazing and other popular glass applications.
Acrylic is also noted for its ease of fabrication. Acrylic can be machined, routed, drilled and cut as easily as wood. When heated, acrylic can be bent into almost any shape. Upon cooling the material retains the shape with surprising stability. At Nationwide Plastics, we have PMMA acrylic and glass film, sheets, rods, and tubes available for all applications. Acrylic is being used in decorative applications as well for products like curtain rods, pergolas and more.
