What is Non-Glare Acrylic?
It refers to a material that is derived from acrylic acid and related compounds designed for reducing glare and reflection from all probable viewing angles and has a matte finish.
It has some of the ideal features, such as shatter-resistant, easy to fabricate, and lightweight making it popular in a wide range of applications.
Non glare acrylic
How does Non-Glare Acrylic compare to Non-Glare Glass?
Strength-wise, a .125” thickness of non-glare acrylic material tends to be about two or three times stronger than non-glare glass.
A .25” non-glare sheet is about 9 to 10 times stronger than non-glare glass.
Non-acrylic is also more than twice resistant to impact compared to non-glare plastic.
In general, non-glare acrylic material is relatively lightweight, more impact resistant, easier to fabricate, and much stronger than non-glare glass.
What are the Advantages of Non-Glare Acrylic?
Easy to fabricate – this material becomes malleable when subjected to high temperatures, which makes it possible for you to mold it into several shapes.
This material also tends to hold its formed shape as it cools down, thus allowing you to drill easily, machine, cut, bond, and polish it.
In other words, you can easily mold it into any shape that you deem ideal for your needs.
It is highly transparent – non-glare acrylic material maintains its clarity as it gets older.
This is to imply that non-glare acrylic material is resistant to fading but, at the same time, allows for efficient light transmittance as well as providing an ideal aesthetic appeal.
Of course, this is beneficial, especially for applications that require exposure to sunlight and UV rays.
Much stronger – You’ll notice that non-glare acrylic is somehow resistant to impact, chemical corrosion, and abrasion, among others.
This makes it a perfect choice for many applications across different industries irrespective of the environment.
Its durability is thus guaranteed, thus giving you value for your investment.
Cost-effective –You might not believe this, but the truth is that non-glare acrylic material tends to be comparatively cheap than other materials such as glasses.
Relatively lightweight– The essence of this aspect is that it makes it possible for you to use it in a wide range of applications since it would easy to carry and fix it around accordingly.
So you can be sure that you’ll use a lightweight material and get great results even in applications that seem relatively challenging to achieve.
Easy to clean and maintain – it is arguably one of the materials that are easy to clean and maintain regardless of the rules surrounding its care and cleaning.
Using a soft wet piece of microfiber cloth and is necessary during cleaning.
You simply need to ensure that you use the recommended cleaning detergents, especially for non-glare acrylic items that are oriented much to visual appeal.
Are there Drawbacks of Non-glare Plexiglas?
Yes, and they include the following;
- It is somewhat more rigid; hence it’s easily susceptible to cracking compared to other materials such as polycarbonate.
- Plexiglas also have higher chances of chipping, which doesn’t make it an entirely suitable option as far as aesthetic over time is considered.
- When you burn it, it tends to release toxic fumes, which can be dangerous to the environment and human wellbeing in general.
How does Non-Glare Acrylic Work?
Typically, non-glare acrylic has a matte-like finish.
The essence of this type of finish to minimize unwanted or unnecessary glare as much as possible.
This material gets rid of reflections by harsh light wavelengths, which might somehow cause glare to appear on its surfaces.
It is the matte-like finish that also tends to blur the optical surface, prints, or artwork for that matter.
Non glare acrylic
Can you print on a non-Glare Acrylic Sheet?
There are specific printers designed to print images, artworks, or any other applicable visual impressions on a non-glare sheet.
However, it is essential to note that it can be relatively expensive.
Also, during printing, some fumes could be released, which might be dangerous to human and general environmental pollution.
How does Non-Glare Acrylic vs. Clear Acrylic compare?
Both materials are relatively lightweight, resistance to shattering, and have high optical clarity.
The critical difference is that non-glare has a matte-like finish, which is the essence of ensuring that it scatters light to reduce the unwanted or excessive light.
On the other hand, clear acrylic can carry a static charge and also allows for 8% of light reflection.
Non-glare acrylic, however, allows for 8% of scattered light reflection.
Can WeProFab Apply other Coating Technologies on Non-Glare Acrylic Sheet?
WeProFab offers several coating technologies that can be integrated with a non-glare acrylic sheet.
Some of these technologies include the following;

What are the Features of Anti-glare Acrylic Sheet?
This material has a wide range of features but the most fundamental ones that you need to know about include the following;
- Easy to bend and mold given that it softens with high temperatures and maintains the molded shape
- Hard-wearing which means that it is ideal both for indoor and outdoor applications
- Offers excellent thickness tolerance
- Provides high optical clarity
- Lightweight and relatively rigid
- Has ideal electrical resistivity
- Low water absorption
Are there Specific Quality Tests for Non-Glare Acrylic?
Definitely! And some of these quality tests include the following;
- A refractive index test which conforms to the ISO 1183 standards
- A total light transmittance test which conforms to the ISO 13468-1 standards.
- Chemical resistance tests
- Haze tests
- Scratch resistance tests
- Impact resistance tests
- Heat resistance tests
- Flexibility tests
The essence of all these tests is to guarantee the safety and of the material and also ensuring that it meets the dynamic performance as per the standards of the industry.
Is Non-Glare Acrylic Scratch Resistant?
Not necessarily. It tends to scratch quite easily.
However, there is always another abrasion-resistant coating technology that can be integrated.
It becomes essential in protecting the anti-glare acrylic sheet from abrasion or scratches when rubbed against something.
Can you Drill Non-Glare Acrylic without Cracking?
Yes. In fact, non-glare acrylic drilling in one of the most popular fabrication methods for this particular type of sheet.
If you want to drill this material without cracking, you need to have the best tools and equipment and understand the process diligently.
The best way to do this is by making sure that you, first of all, determine the best spots to drill on the material.
You also need to ensure that you have a drill bit size, which corresponds to the thickness of the non-glare sheet.
And finally, during the drilling process, you also need to factor in how to regulate the drilling speed as well as tilting the drilling machine to the apt angle.
This way, you’ll have perfect holes in the material without any slightest crack on it.
Are Anti-glare Acrylic available in Tinted Colors?
They are available in a wide range of tinted colors, which is vital since it makes it possible for you to choose the particular one that suits your requirements.

How do you Manufacture Non-Glare Acrylic?
Non glare acrylic
Anti-glare acrylic material is formed through a process commonly referred to as bulk polymerization.
The catalyst and the monomer are placed in a mold to allow for the reaction.
The batch cell is the most preferred method of bulk polymerization since it is somehow simple and easy to adapt as far as making an acrylic sheet is concerned.
So during the reaction, the mold is sealed, and heat applied.
Heat might as generate during the reaction. A controlled temperature cycle is observed to ensure that there’s proper cure time as well as preventing the formation of bubbles.
Once the plastic cures, the mold is opened, and plates cleaned and reassembled for the next batch.
Well, this process could be intensive and hence requires appropriate monitoring of the stages.
