large acrylic cylinder
Acrylic, (PMMA Polymethyl-Methacrylate) is one of the most widely used plastics for aquariums and water tanks, displays, lighting an other applications where its clarity, moderate cost, and easy forming properties are important.
Polyfab fabricates large acrylic cylinders by forming sheet material on custom molds.
The applications are water tanks, experimental apparatus, curved wall acquariums,
Trade show displays and architectural features. Polyfab has fo rmed radiuses from 1 inch up to 90 feet and has formed sheets as thick as 1-1/2”.
The sheets are heated until soft and then wrapped around the mold. Once cool, the pieces are trimmed and then bonded either with an acrylic cement or by welding the seam.
Depending on the application and the thickness of the material, the formed pieces may be put back into the oven for annealing which relieves internal stresses and prevents crazing.
