    Greencast® satin acrylic is cast acrylic (PLEXIGLAS®/pmma) that is made from 100% recycled pre- and post-consumer acrylic with all the excellent qualities of standard cast satin acrylic. Satin acrylic is clear with a satin, soft surface texture. Satin acrylic can be used in combination with light. The material captures and guides the light. Greencast® can now also be ordered in more than 15 transparent colours, such as red (also translucent), light blue and blue, green and glass look.

    Greencast® is the most sustainable and especially green choice in the acrylic world. Recycled clear acrylic is crystal clear sheet material and very easy to work with. The material is also colourfast and UV resistant. The main advantage of this material is that it can be recycled time and time again and it can be reused. It is a circular material. PyraSied can, of course, take back the material after use to recycle it again. So, all good reasons to choose recycled Greencast®!

    Satin Greencast® is the durable, circular variant of the standard satin cast acrylic (51000). You can choose this material if you prefer non-recycled acrylic.

    Stock Greencast® satin recycled acrylic

    Recycled satin acrylic 61000 is in stock in various thicknesses from 3-10mm. The maximum sheet size depends on the thickness of the material. PyraSied has Greencast® 100% recycled cast acrylic in stock in various variants: clear, white, black, coloured and opal. These variants are standard colours in certain thicknesses and can be ordered directly via the webshop or via e-mail. New in our range is Ecocrylic® XT clear. Ecocrylic® is extruded acrylic made from 70% recycled XT acrylic. This collection can be ordered in thicknesses from 2 to 5mm thick. Ecocrylic® has hardly any thickness tolerance compared to Greencast® and is the green alternative to virgin XT acrylic.

    Other colours

    Greencast® can also be produced in other colours, thicknesses and types such as metallic, translucent or satin. A minimum order quantity applies for this. Ask our Sales & Support department (sales@pyrasied.nl) for more information.

    Application possibilities

    Greencast® is a cast acrylic with all the good characteristics of cast PMMA. This means that recycled acrylic can be used for the same applications as virgin (not recycled) acrylic. The material is very suitable for projects where sustainability is very important. Greencast® Satin acrylic is widely used but is mainly used in interior construction, stand and decor construction, shop design, lighting, signing and display construction. This material is ideal for interior glazing. This material is less suitable for very demanding optical applications such as light guide plates. For this, we recommend using standard acrylic. Do you want to be inspired with all the possibilities with acrylic? Please check our Acrylic community for various examples of applications with acrylic.

    Fabrication possibilities

    Greencast® acrylic is very easy to fabricate. The fabrication possibilities are cutting, milling, laser-cutting, bonding, drilling, faceting, polishing, sanding and printing. Unfortunately, Greencast® cannot be bent by draping. Greencast® turns slightly yellow on the ends as soon as you bend it in an oven. However, line bending or tempering is no problem at all.

    Frequently Asked Questions
    How is acrylic recycled?

    PyraSied has committed itself for more than three years to taking back acrylic for recycling. The remains and the used acrylic are collected in a large bin and then sent to the recycling plant. The depolymerization process starts there.
    Molecular chains are cracked by the heating process. The PMMA (acrylic) residues are hereby returned to a liquid state.
    The next step is distillation. The impurities are separated, whereby the original monomer is obtained. After this R-MMA remains: Recycled Methyl Methacrylate monomer. This is used to make new recycled acrylic sheets.
    The result: fully recycled acrylic sheets made from 100% post-and pre-consumer acrylic. We call this material Greencast®.
    A dye is added to the coloured sheets. This gives the sheet a different colour. No colourant is added to clear sheets.

    Why isn’t Greencast® cheaper than normal cast acrylic?

    Often, the quality of recycled material is less than the original. This is not the case with acrylic. The quality is the same as the quality of normal cast acrylic. In addition, the cost price of Greencast® is the same as the "virgin" variant. The process to produce Greencast® and standard cast acrylic is the same, but the raw material is different. That is why we offer Greencast® for the exact same price.

    How do we know for sure that Greencast® is really made from recycled acrylic?

    We are regularly asked if Greencast® is really "recycled" and that it is not a fake. We can prove that this is really not the case. Our supplier, Madreperla, is an ISO certified company. This means that the material flow is recorded in detail for the purpose of, among other things, quality controls. In addition, Madreperla has enough R-MMA in stock to make Greencast®. Madreperla, therefore, has no reason to make Greencast® from "virgin" PMMA.

    Is there a difference between virgin / normal cast acrylic and recycled acrylic?

    No, the properties are completely the same. Greencast® is less suitable for very demanding applications such as light guide plates. Furthermore, the material is suitable for the same applications.

    Is it possible to make Greencast® sheets in other colours?

    Yes! We even have more than 17 colours standard in stock in various thicknesses. Greencast® can also be produced in other colours, thicknesses and types such as metallic, translucent or satin. A minimum order quantity applies for this. Ask our Sales & Support department (sales@pyrasied.nl) for more information.

    Can you easily fabricate Greencast® acrylic?

    Acrylic is very easy to fabricate. Fabrication possibilities: cutting, milling, laser-cutting, bonding, drilling, faceting, polishing, sanding and printing. Unfortunately, Greencast® cannot be bent by draping. Clear Greencast® turns slightly yellow on the ends as soon as you bend it in an oven. However, line bending or tempering is no problem at all.

We deliver from our excellently equipped workshop - where high-tech machinery and traditional craftsmanship ensure optimum results, completely customized according to drawing or design.

    Is acrylic easy to maintain?

    Acrylic is very easy to maintain with the use of a soft microfiber cloth and a mild household cleaner. The use of brushes, sponges and abrasive cleaning agents is not recommended, as this can cause tiny scratches. Accumulation of these types of scratches ultimately gives a dull result. However, this can be remedied by polishing the scratched surface. It is also possible to fill in light scratches with our VuPlex plastic cleaner, for example. For more information, see our cleaning instructions.
