What’s to say about acrylic, it comes in a massive variety of colors, textures, transparencies and thicknesses… in addition, it can be bought in different grades to suit just about any application your business may need.
With just a little heat (or a lot) it can also be color changed, bent and folded!
Acrylic can be cut to just about any size using our Trotec Speedy 400 flexx’s CO2 laser source (we have a fiber as well) efficiently and cleanly.
The edges are always flame polished – something you can’t do using a CNC router or manual tool unless you go through a secondary process involving a flame thrower and a quick hand.
If you are looking for a custom jig, acrylic is also a wonderful material, they are precise, easy to build and last a very long time without being prone to warping due to humidity or temperature variations like MDF or other materials generally used for jig making.
Some applications best suited to acrylic:
- illuminated or neon advertising displays
- small personalized point of sale (POS/POP) displays
- unique name badges
- custom poker chips
- individualized jewelry for short runs
- mass production of promotional tags of all sorts
- inserts and inlays
- … and the list goes on.
Including custom mirror production that can be paint filled!
As you can see, there are A LOT of applications where acrylic makes perfect sense!
