Characteristics of plexiglass sheets

  • resistance to UV rays, yellowing
  • resistance to inorganic factors such as acids, bases, salts
  • high resistance to rain, snow, ice, hail and wind
  • plexiglass is resistant to mechanical stress (but less than PC)
  • 90% light transmission
  • ease of processing
  • resistance to aging – these plates do not crumble
  • good thermal insulation

Plexiglas differs in the method of production, and its selection depends mainly on the intended use of the plate and its possible further processing. GS tends to be more resistant, while processing, than XT (ex. laser cutting), but also is more expensive.
