We've got some eye-opening insights for you regarding the cast acrylic sheet market and the quality of materials you use. You may not be aware, but some importers are cutting corners at the expense of your projects, products, and production. Roehm America is here to shine a light on these practices and offer a better way.
The Risks of Working with Imported Cast Sheet
Some imported cast acrylic sheets are susceptible to a practice known as "down-gauging". It's a cost-cutting measure where thinner sheets are produced, compromising quality and integrity. By offering an exceptionally wide tolerance range, the manufacturer is able to engage in this undesirable practice without consequence.
The results of these cost-cutting measures can have a negative impact on the effectiveness of the acrylic and, in turn, on your product and/or application. Often, down-gauging leads to uneven lighting, reduced structural strength, and even ineffective bonds.
