ACRYLITE® Resist prismatic sheet
ACRYLITE® Resist prismatic offers high impact resistance. These products feature superior performance having many times the impact strength of glass and standard acrylic sheet as tested by the Gardner Impact Method (ASTM D5420). Having similar strength to tempered glass, it will not shatter. Instead, if broken, it will crack or fracture into large pieces that are much less sharp than glass.
- sheet weighs half as much as glass
- manufactured from a weatherable acrylic polymer, it can be used outdoors for many years
- colorless options provide 85% light transmission. White WRT25 provides 66% light transmission
