Cut to size orders are cut with table and CNC panel saws and have a cut tolerance of +/- .060”. Plastic sheets have a thickness tolerance of +/- 10% and can have thickness variations throughout the sheet. Cut to size items cannot be returned for a refund or exchange.

Sheet sizes, colors, thicknesses and products available on our website are just a fraction of what's available at TAP Plastics stores.

Cut to size orders are currently taking 1 to 2 days (M-F) to process.

Visit your local TAP Plastics store where cut-to-size orders often take less than five minutes, start to finish.

Chemcast BR 1.250 sheets are 1.25" thick, transparent cell cast acrylic sheet which meets the UL752 Level 1 requirements. 

The cell cast manufacturing technique produces sheets with unsurpassed optical clarity while maintaining a light transmission of 92%. Every sheet is inspected to ensure that the material meets exacting visual specifications. Thickness tolerances are checked on a sheet-by-sheet basis to ensure that the material will provide the required protection. The material is protected with masking to prevent surface scratches during shipping and manufacturing.

Bullet Resistance
Underwriters Laboratories, UL 752, is the specification most commonly used to identify a material's level of bullet resistance. Chemcast sheets listed under UL 752 are rated for both indoor and outdoor applications.

Most fabrication techniques used for standard acrylic sheet will work with BR as the only difference between the two materials is the thickness of the sheet. It is essential to keep frictional heat to a minimum during fabrication to reduce internal stress. It is also necessary to prevent or remove any "notching" along the cut edge of the sheet. The presence of notches could reduce the material's resistance to cracking. Either scraping or bull nosing the edges before installation can eliminate notches. Cutting of the material can easily be accomplished with the use of a sturdy table saw. A saw blade having carbide tips and a "triple chip" tooth design achieves the best results. More intricate cuts can be made using a band saw or hand-held reciprocating saw.
