Plexiglas® T Impact Acrylic Sheet Family

Available in three levels of impact resistance. You no longer have to sacrifice clarity, design flexibility or fabrication techniques to get additional toughness.

High clarity Plexiglas® T Acrylic Sheet is available in three levels of impact resistance.

Plexiglas T vs. Standard Acrylic Sheet

PLEXIGLAS® T

Plexiglas T acrylic combines the beauty of Plexiglas MC with added toughness. At the level of toughness afforded by Plexiglas T acrylic, you no longer have to sacrifice clarity, design flexibility or fabrication techniques to get additional toughness.

PLEXIGLAS® T2

Plexiglas T2, the second level of impact resistance in the Plexiglas T acrylic family, gives the designer the freedom to explore new designs that may not have been possible with a standard acrylic. It can be used in displays in environments where durability is needed.

PLEXIGLAS® T3

For your most highly demanding POP applications, we offer the greatest level of impact resistance available with Plexiglas T3 acrylic. All three levels offer excellent clarity, rigidity and resistance to the effects of fluorescent lighting in POP and display environments.

Plexiglas T acrylic sheet grades are available in colorless, white, black and green. Sheet sizes vary; thicknesses range from 0.060"to 0.354".

All grades provide designers with flexibility, surface hardness and versatile fabrication techniques. Aesthetic appeal is retained even with displays placed in high-traffic areas.
