    • CAST Acrylic Sheets -are offered in Clear, Black, White, Grey, Bronze, Blue, Red, Yellow, Green and more. Acrylic applications include: picture frames, store displays, furniture, shelving, windows, barriers, shields, replacement glass and aquariums. Clear Acrylic s is optically transparent, unaffected by moisture, and offers a high strength-to-weight ratio, and can be easily heat-formed without loss of optical clarity. Prolonged exposure to moisture, or even total immersion in water, does not significantly effect its' mechanical or optical properties.

      Why use CAST Acrylic verses EXTRUDED Acrylic ?
    • Continuous Service Temp: 180° F (Cast) vs. 160° F (Extruded)
    • Formability Temp: 340° F to 380° F (Cast) vs 290° F to 320° F (Extruded)
    • Cast acrylic has a higher molecular weight, therefore it will cut, drill and rout cleaner.
    • When machining cast acrylic, shavings will flake off whereas extruded acrylic shavings may gum up on the tool.
    • Cast acrylic also offers better glue-joint effectiveness and performs better in laser cutting.
    • Plexiglass (Plexglass Sheet) Extruded Acrylic Sheet is a glazing, signage, window or display material that is strong, moisture resistant & is more clear than glass. Plexiglass acrylic sheets can also be heat-formed without loss of optical clarity. Plexiglass sheets are economical, impact-resistant and can be precision-cut to size. If you need plexiglass, don't go to Home Depot or Lowes, call a "Professional".

      Not sure which plexiglass color to choose ?
      Plexiglass image on right of page will change when you have selected a Color, Size and Tolerance
    • Note: Not all colors are available in all thicknesses. (.125" & .250" are most common for colors)

      Translucent, Transparent or Opaque Colored Plexiglass ? - Which do you want ? - See Color Chart
    • Translucent Plexiglass = Light & Shadows can be seen through Sheet.
    • Transparent Plexiglass = Images can be viewed through sheet (like tinted glass)
    • Opaque Plexiglass = Neither light nor images can be seen through the sheet.

      "Plexiglass" is often used as a generic term for acrylic. Spelled as Plexiglas® (one S) it's the Arkema brand name. Spelled as "plexiglass" (two SS's), it's generic acrylic. We offer; Acrylite® FF, & Lucite® CP brands. Professional Plastics offers precision cut-to-size plexiglass delivered direct to your door. Plexiglass sheet is a versatile material that has many residential, commercial, industrial, and professional uses.

    • Aluminum shapes (aluminum plates, bars & profiles) are available for online purchase from Professional Plastics.

      Aluminum 6061 is a heat-treatable grade widely used in light to medium strength structural applications. The alloy has good corrosion resistance and weldability and possesses good formability in the 0 to T4 tempers. 6061 does lose appreciable strength when welded and it is replaced by the 5000 series alloys where afterweld strength is a prime consideration. 6061 is used in structural areas where both strength and corrosion resistance is required, truck bodies and frames, and towers.

    • AquaKing Tubing is a unique self-sinking tubing for aeration systems, is manufactured to deliver air into a pond, lagoon or lake bed from an electric aerator, windmill or other types of aeration systems.

      The rising air bubbles from an aeration system, using the AQUAKING self-sinking bottom-feeder tubing, adds life-giving oxygen to the water and creates an essential circulation pattern. The result is healthier fish, reduced algae growth, fewer dissolved toxic gasses, less odor and elimination of stagnation.

      AQUAKING self-sinking tubing is constructed of heavy, negative-buoyancy, polyvinyl chloride (PVC) material. AQUAKING tubing descends to the bottom of the pond, lagoon or lake without the use of extra weights.
