ACRYLITE® FF from ACI Plastics offers crystal clear clarity while being far half the weight of glass. is also rigid and weather-resistant thermoplastic. ACRYLITE FF sheets are dimensional stable and resistant to breakage. They can be easily sawed, machined, heat-formed and cemented.
Because of its virtually distortion-free clarity, it is well suited for use in a variety of applications including:
- Aircraft Glazing
- Outdoor Signage
- Structural Applications
- Recreational Vehicles
ACRYLITE FF sheet is safer than glass because of its greater breakage resistance. If subjected to impact beyond the limit of its resistance, it does not shatter into small slivers, but breaks into comparatively large pieces. ACRYLITE FF sheet complies with American National Standard Z97.1-1975, Safety Glazing for Buildings.
Weather Resistance – withstands exposure to blazing sun, extreme cold, sudden temperature changes, saltwater spray, etc. without deterioration after many years of service.
Dimensional Stability – shrinkage occurs when ACRYLITE FF is heated to forming temperature, but post-forming stability is excellent.
Lightweight – half the weight of glass, and 43% the weight of aluminum.
Rigid – provides more rigidity than many other plastics such as acetates or vinyls.
