Benefits of Acrylic Fabrication
Acrylic sheet is offered in wide variety of colors, surface finishes, thicknesses and sheet sizes. It also can be purchased in rod and tube if the project requires it. The surface of acrylic is relatively hard and resists scratching under moderate conditions. It can be bent, laser-cut, engraved, polished and glued with great ease and optimum esthetic value.
Acrylic is commonly used in sheet form for signage and glazing applications, but because of its outstanding fabrication characteristics, it is also a favorite for display cases, literature racks, machine covers, candy bins, POP displays and more.
Benefits of PETG Fabrication
Like acrylic, PETG is a clear thermoplastic sheet that is commonly used for fabricated products. Not only can it be easily cut, machined and glued for assembly, but it also can be thermoformed to produce very detailed and uniquely designed parts. It is softer than acrylic making it more vulnerable to scratching, but it has greater impact strength to resist breakage. It’s mix of strength, clarity and ease of fabrication make it an ideal choice for machine guards, equipment covers and POP displays.
Benefits of Polycarbonate
Polycarbonate is the most impact-resistant thermoplastic used in the glazing and signage markets. It comes in variety of sheet sizes and thickness to meet a wide range of industry demands. There are a few colors and finishes available to choose from, but the selection is rather limited compared to acrylic. Polycarbonate can be machined, bent, glued and mechanically fastened to produce machine guards and other enclosures, however due to its composition and the tendency to absorb moisture, the ability to thermoform and polish this material becomes difficult.
Erie Industrial Plastics produces hundreds of polycarbonate machine guards every year in all shapes and sizes for all types of businesses. Let us help you put safety first with free design advise on your next guarding application.
