Clear impact resistant acrylic from PyraSied is available from stock in various thicknesses. Acrylic, also known as Plexiglas / Perspex®, is a very beautiful material and we are happy to share it with everyone. What is so special about extra impact-resistant Plexiglas? Normal acrylic is already super strong, but this variant is even more impact resistant and therefore more difficult to break. Furthermore, the beauty is in the clarity of the material. It is much clearer than glass! Acrylic has a light transmission of 92%, which is very high. Plexiglas is therefore optically very pure material. You can always see that in the applications. Acrylic is also beautiful in combination with light. Acrylic catches the light, guides the light and plays with the light. In short, light makes acrylic live. Acrylate / Plexiglas is particularly durable due to a very long colourfastness and service life.
Are you looking for more impact-resistant material? Then choose polycarbonate. Polycarbonate is known for its enormous impact resistance. It is 250 times stronger than glass in the same thickness.
The benefits of XT plexiglass is that it hardly knows a thickness tolerance. For applications where the material is in a profile or where a flat surface is required, we recommend extruded acrylic. Because XT acrylic is produced in large quantities, XT is relatively cheaper than GS acrylic sheets.
Clear acrylic sheets, also known as clear Plexiglas or Perspex, are on stock in thicknesses varying from 1,5mm up to 20mm. The acrylic can be ordered cut to size via our webshop. We have acrylic block in stock up to 100 mm thick, but this is cast acrylic. In addition, we also have thinner acrylic, precision acrylic Topacryl, this is also cast acrylic.
PyraSied also offers an environmentally friendly alternative to cast acrylic (GS), namely Greencast® 100% recycled cast acrylic. Greencast® has exactly the same properties as normal cast acrylic, but is the green, circular choice in the acrylic world. Greencast® is offered in transparent in clear and different colours, but also in white, black and opal.
Clear acrylic is widely used as additional windows, temporary glazing, interior glazing, showcases, cover sheets, displays, furniture and wall presentations. Do you want to be inspired with all the possibilities with acrylic? Then take a look at our Acrylic community for various examples of applications with acrylic.
Acrylic is very easy to fabricate. Fabrication possibilities: cutting, milling, laser-cutting, oven bending, bonding, drilling, faceting, polishing, sanding and printing. Do you want more information about how to fabricate acrylic yourself? Take a look at our acrylic fabrications page. Here you can find tips and tricks about the fabrication possibilities of acrylic.
These fabrications can be performed by PyraSied if desired. We deliver from our well-equipped workshop – where a high-tech machine park and traditional craftsmanship ensure optimum results, completely tailored to your drawing or design.
Plexiglas®, Versato®, Altuglas® and Astariglas® are brands of the plastic acrylic (PMMA).

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.
