A new range of Super Abrasion Resistant acrylics from Allplastics Engineering has revolutionised architectural and building applications.
SAR acrylic sheets provide architects, designers, builders and manufacturers with a real alternative to glass.
Being abrasion resistant, SAR acrylic sheets do not scratch and offer superior advantages over conventional clear glazing materials. In fact, their abrasion resistance performance is quite similar to glass.
SAR acrylic sheets are produced by applying a very hard coating to a Perspex acrylic substrate. This quality coating provides SAR with a surface that has 45 times the abrasion resistance of uncoated acrylic.
Consequently, SAR sheets are an attractive material for applications that require the safety, optical and aesthetic qualities of acrylic along with a highly abrasion-resistant surface coating for internal and external projects.
Vic Kalloghlian from Allplastics says that SAR, at half the weight of glass makes handling easier and safer in addition to saving installation costs and time.
Super abrasion resistant acrylic sheets can be cut and fabricated at the installation site using power tools. SAR is ideal for glass replacement installations because it can be readily fitted into existing frames.
