The so-called “white types” are acrylic glasses with different light transmission. The type WH02 is primarily used for making light boxes for advertising and in the photographic and film sectors. On account of the large amount of light transmission but low transparency, the illuminant behind the sheet of acrylic glass cannot be seen and the surface shines evenly. In illuminated advertising, coloured Self adhesive films are glued to the surface of the acrylic sheet.

Type light transmission (reference value)
WH17 90 % at 3 mm thickness
WH10 62 % at 3 mm thickness
WH02 44 % at 3 mm thickness
WH73 19 % at 3 mm thickness
WH01 03 % at 3 mm thickness

Acrylic glass GS sheets and blocks are produced by means of liquid PAMMA polymerizing between two sheets of glass. This process produces a material with outstanding characteristics: it is fracture resistant (compared to glass), weather resistant, highly transparent and lends itself to being shaped and processed.

Acrylic glass GS can be milled, drilled and sawn and, as a thermoplastic plastic, can be shaped (deformed) at temperatures between 160 and 180 degrees. When processing it with a CNC milling machine please take into account the thickness tolerances (the variability) of the acrylic glass. The values for the possible tolerances can be calculated with the help of the following formula: Tolerance = ± (0.4 + 0.1 x thickness) mm. For intricate milling work like that which often is required in model making, we recommend you use cast precision acrylic glass.
