Ideal for a range of applications, extruded acrylic is blessed with a bright finish and a consistent thickness, making it is ideally suited for customisation and personalised fabrication. Additionally, it fuses remarkably well with appropriate solvent-based adhesives.
Extruded acrylic has a lower forming temperature than cast acrylic, making it exceedingly easier to mould and reshape when needed. The material is easily cut and drilled with common power tools found in the average home, but care must be taken to ensure the material is not pushed too hard as this may result in it splitting.

What is Black Acrylic?
Black acrylic is a versatile and durable material that can be used for a variety of purposes, including painting, signage, or furniture. It is made up of polypropylene resin and pigment and can withstand high levels of water exposure without rotting or warping. Additionally, black acrylic has an opaque finish that provides depth to your artwork or signage.
Because it is resistant to environmental damage, black acrylic is ideal for use in environments where outdoor signs are subject to weathering and fading.
If you’re looking for a material that offers both aesthetic appeal and durability –without being too expensive–black acrylic may be the perfect choice for you!
