While cast acrylic and plexiglass have excellent physical properties, one of the most beneficial features of acrylic plastic is that it can be manufactured in a range of colors and transparencies. It’s even possible to tint plexiglass with a variety of colors to bring subtle tones into a space. Plexiglass is also moisture resistant and easy to machine with standard woodworking tools, making it ideal for durable retail displays and furniture.
At Acme Plastics, we offer acrylic cast color sheets in the popular colors shown below, as well as acrylic cast white sheets.

In the table below, we may use the following letters to signify the visual properties of the acrylic sheets:
- O = Opaque - When held to light, one cannot see through the material.
- L = Translucent - When held to light, it’s possible to see shadows through the material, or the material will otherwise have some degree of light transmission.
- P = Transparent - When held to light, one can see clearly through the material as if it were glass.
