PLEXIGLAS® GS and PLEXIGLAS® XT



PLEXIGLAS® solid sheet are available as cast acrylic (PLEXIGLAS® GS) and extruded acrylic (PLEXIGLAS® XT). PLEXIGLAS® GS and PLEXIGLAS® XT sheets differ because they are produced in different ways. The applications for which they are intended are also partly different, but their properties are nevertheless similar.
