    Frequently Asked Questions
    What is the difference between XT acrylic and GS acrylic?

    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!

    What is the difference between plexiglas/plexiglass and acrylic?

    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.

    What is the difference between acrylic and glass?

    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.

    Is it possible to fabricate acrylic?

    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.

    Would you like more information about our fabrication possibilities? Please check our website under “Fabrications“. It is also possible to request a quote via this page.

    Is acrylic easy to clean?

    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.

    Acrylic / PLEXIGLAS® from Pyrasied

    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.

    Characteristics

    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.
