Common Questions About Working with Acrylic

Acrylic is great material to work with because of the creation process, durability, and final products they create. Working with acrylic is done on an industrial sized scale, but can also be worked on at home for D.I.Y projects. For anyone looking to work with acrylic, it is important you find and hire a professional company. This is so you deal with individuals who have the tools/machinary and knowledge to do perfect acrylic cutting and tapping. Most of the professional machines used too cut acrylic (i.e. a water-jet cutter) are rather expensive a difficult to learn to use properly. Dealing with professional companies will save time and money in the long run.
Below we will be going over some common questions that are asked when working with acrylic.

Q) Is it possible to bend acrylic?

A) The simple answer is yes. When heated to the proper temperature, acrylic becomes malleable. When it is cooled it returns to its hardened state. This is not an easy process, and so it requires special tools and knowhow. Depending on the length and width of the piece, different heat needs to be applied for different times. If overheated, the acrylic can melt or completely warp. It is also difficult to actually bend and hold a shape, so professional companies have expensive systems designed specifically to bend acrylic. This will ensure that your acrylic is bent to the proper angles/dimensions.

Q) Can you glue acrylic to another piece of acrylic?

A) It is possible to use glue, but there are different types of acrylic glue to choose from. This includes acrylic cement and water thin cements. Thicker cement will fill voids between pieces of acrylic, but do not allow for a perfectly flush finish. A thin cement well help to make perfect joints, but it will not fill in any gaps. If your product is finished properly, then it is much easier to determine the best type of glue for you.

Q) Can acrylic be glued to glass?

A) General Electric makes something called contractors silicone (also known as SCS 1200), and it is commonly used when gluing glass and acrylic. It is best to leave this to professionals as well. In order to make a perfect, seamless bond both surfaces must be perfectly clean. Even a simple fingerprint can ruin the bonding process. Professionals can get a perfect bond every time.
