Acrylic/Perspex Machining Service

Acrylic, also known as Perspex® and Acrylite® is a transparent thermoplastic with excellent strength and optical clarity.

Acrylic is well known for its optical clarity, however machining can cause the plastic to 'frost'. Making the component clear again will require polishing, which may add cost.

Penta Precision offer the following services:

  • Acrylic milling
  • Acrylic turning
  • Acrylic polishing
  • Machining design advice

Acrylic is easy to solvent bond, UV resistant and has a range of coatings available; abrasian resistant, bullet resistant and electrostatic dissipative (ESD). Acrylic is also FDA approved.

Acrylic is commonly used for:

  • Aerospace components
  • Transparent manifolds
  • Guards
  • Housings
  • Electronics components
