    Frequently Asked Questions
    What is acrylic?

    Acrylic is the transparent plastic that is known as Plexiglas® or Perspex®. Acrylic is in the base 100% transparent (colourless), lightweight, stiff, practically unbreakable, easy to fabricate and is a good alternative for glass. This material is weatherproof, UV-stable and does not discolour.

    What is the difference between Plexiglas and acrylic?

    There is no difference between Plexiglas® (Plexiglass®) and acrylic. Plexiglas® is a brand name of the transparent plastic acrylic. In the Netherlands is Plexiglas so well-known that it has become a recognizable product name for acrylic.

    Other well-known brand names for acrylic sheets are; Perspex ®, Altuglas ®, Astariglas ®, PMMA ® and Versato ®.

    What is the difference between cast (GS) and extruded (XT) acrylic?

    PyraSied has various thickness in stock in cast acrylic (GS), extruded acrylic (XT), topacryl (GS) and cast acrylic block (GS).

    Cast acrylic (GS)

    The benefit of cast acrylic is that it is easy producible in small quantities, which offers flexibility. PyraSied has cast acrylic in stock in many thicknesses in clear, colours and surface structures. The material is also available as 100 % recycled acrylic.  

    Extruded acrylic (XT)

    Extruded acrylic is having the same material characteristics as cast acrylic, but is having other benefits because of the extrusion process. Extruded acrylic is made with a full continuous extrusion process.  The greatest benefit of XT is that it barely knows any thickness tolerance. For applications where the material  is in a profile or when a flat surface is required, we always recommend XT acrylic. Secondly, the material is produced in large volumes, which makes it price technically cheaper than cast acrylic. The downside to this is that there are fewer variations of this material. 

     

    Is it possible to fabricate acrylic?

    Acrylics are easy to fabricate. The fabrication possibilities are: Sawing, laser-cutting, milling, warm bending, gluing, drilling, faceting, polishing, sanding, and printing.

    PyraSied can carry out all the fabrications for you. We deliver from our excellently equipped workplace – where high-tech machinery and classical craftsmanship ensure optimal results, tailor-made according to drawings or designs.

    Acrylic / Plexiglass ® from Pyrasied

    PyraSied wants to show their beautiful collection of acrylic / Plexiglass ® to you and the world! Acrylics are known for their simplicity as clear acrylic sheets that are optically pure. The beauty in this material is the transparency and this is always visible in the applications. The material is beautiful in combination with light, because it catches the light, guides the light and is also playing with light. Light is bringing this material to life and that is why we love it!

    In addition to the aesthetic perception of acrylic, it also has good material properties which makes it suitable for a lot of different applications. Acrylic is optically pure, UV-resistant, easy to fabricate and is extremely durable with a long colour fastness and lifespan. PyraSied is having the most diverse stock in the Netherlands of acrylic sheets, tubes and rods in various thicknesses, colours and surface structures. We are having acrylics in gloss, matt, satin, coloured, opal, mirrored and frosted. We are having a flexible stock, so there is always a type of acrylic on stock that you are looking for!

    Acrylic can be 100% recycled and is therefore good for the environment! The light transmission of Plexiglass is 92% and has the fire classification E according to EN13501-1. Acrylic is easy to clean with just water and a cloth, but we also sell VuPlex plastic cleaner to make sure that the acrylic looks like it is new!
