Impact Modified acrylic sheets have elastomers added to the resin before the sheets are extruded on a production line. This results in a terrifically impact resistant material with only slightly reduced scratch resistance and light admittance. Varying degrees of impact modification are achievable, with 45% being the most commonly used.
These special purpose acrylic discs are ideal for providing protective secondary glazing for windows which are susceptible to damage. They also display a terrific resilience to vandalism and are a fantastic choice where this sort of protection is required.
