Acrylic is optically very pure and beautiful with light. We have acrylic on stock in a thickness of 15mm in various colours which are perfect to be used for furniture.
Show cases of acrylic are lightweight, less breakable, optically more pure than glass (light transmission of 92%) and does not have green edges. Moreover, there is a lot of choice in colours!
Our optical pure acrylic tubes can be fabricated into reactors and machine caps. Acrylic is strong, opticully pure and UV-resistant.
Choose from 8 different colours and various thicknesses. We can make curved and flat boat windows of acrylic with mount holes, cut to size and quickly!
Because you can choose from a lot of colours and variants in acrylic, it is often used for jewelery. Acrylic can be ordered cut to size via our website, you can choose the dimensions you need for your jewelery. Acrylic is very easy to fabricate!
Letters and figures can be easily laser cut by using an AutoCAD drawing.
GS (cast acrylic) is optically purer but has a thickness tolerance *. XT (extruded acrylic) has hardly any thickness tolerance but is optically slightly less pure. However, the optical differences are barely perceptible, certainly not with smaller sheets.
For applications where the material is in a profile or when a flat surface is required, we recommend the use of extruded acrylic. Because XT acrylic is produced in large quantities, XT acrylic sheets are relatively slightly cheaper than cast GS acrylic sheets.
Do you want more choice of thicknesses, colours and surfaces? Then you can choose cast (GS) acrylic.
* a difference in thickness within a sheet. With cast acrylic, the standard for A-quality is +/- 0.4mm + 10% nominal thickness, so a 10mm sheet runs from 8.6 to 11.4mm. Within one sheet!
Plexiglas/plexiglass/PLEXIGLAS® and acrylic is the same. PLEXIGLAS® is the brand name of the transparent plastic acrylic, just like Perspex® for example. In the Netherlands, the term ‘plexiglas’ is so known that this became the product name of this plastic.
Acrylic has a very high light transmission and this is much higher than glass with 92%. In addition, it is 25 times stronger than glass and only half as heavy. Acrylic is also easy to work with and it will not shatter, which glass does. It is also very durable, it is resistant to all kinds of weather conditions and usually light and UV-resistant.
An advantage of glass over acrylic is the scratch resistance. The acrylic surface is softer and therefore scratches faster. With the right care, this can be minimized/repaired perfectly, while a scratch in glass can no longer be removed.
Acrylic is easy to fabricate. The fabrication possibilities are: Sawing, laser-cutting, milling, warm bending, gluing, drilling, faceting, polishing, sanding, and printing.
For business customers, it is possible to perform these fabrications by PyraSied. We deliver from our excellently equipped workshop – where a high-tech machine park and classic craftsmanship ensure optimal results, completely customized according to drawing or design.

Put a little water in a container and add a drop of dish soap. Do not use Glassex at all. We also sell VuPlex. We recommend using this cleaning agent. In addition to the safe cleaning of acrylic, it also serves as a protective coating, which means that acrylic does not become static. Another good alternative is Burnus antistatic cleaner.
PyraSied likes to share the beauty of acrylic, also known as PLEXIGLAS®/plexiglass, with you and the world! Acrylic is clearer and stronger than glass. It is optically very pure material. 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. This ensures that the material really comes to life.
This plastic can be produced in various thicknesses, colours, surface structures and designs. As a result, it is often used in aesthetic applications. In addition, the material is also often used technically by the industry for machine caps or reactors.
Acrylic is known for its excellent characteristics. This material is strong, UV-resistant, colourfast and has a long lifespan. Acrylic will remain beautiful for years if used properly. This type of plastic is fully recyclable and therefore good for the environment! We also offer acrylic made from recycled acrylic. The light transmission of plexiglass is 92% and the fire class is E according to EN13501-1. Additional data sheets are available on request.
PyraSied has the most diverse stock of acrylic sheets, tubes and rods in the Benelux. We have acrylic in stock in clear, transparent colours, translucent colours, satin colours, opaque colours and specials such as mirror or metallic.
