PyraSied has high gloss, opal acrylic tubes made of extruded acrylic on stock in diverse diameters. These tubes make light beautifully diffuse and is often applied in combination with light, such as in lighting fixtures. The tube has a light transmission of 34%. You can order these tubes per full length of two meter and we can cut the tubes to your own measurements.
On this page, you can see the full collection of opal acrylic tubes. We have opal acrylic tubes on stock in diameters from Ø 50-610 mm with a wall thickness of 3 mm. The tubes can be ordered per full length. The full length is 2 meter. PyraSied has also retrostructure acrylic tubes on stock.
Acrylic opal tubes are mainly used in the lighting industry because of the beautiful light diffusion. This opal tube has a limited UV-stability and it is advised to not use these tubes for a long-term outdoor use.

There are two main types of acrylic, cast and extruded acrylic. An advantage of cast acrylic is that it is easy to produce in small quantities, which offers flexibility. Extruded acrylic has the advantage that it hardly knows any thickness tolerance.
Acrylic is optically more pure than polycarbonate. Polycarbonate, on the other hand, is much more impact-resistant than acrylic, but yellows faster.
It is possible to order samples of clear, satin or opal tubes. These samples are meant to be able to look at the type of tube and its surface. Since we only sell tubes and rods per full length, we do not have residues. That is why it is not possible to order samples of every diameter and wall thickness.
