Continuously manufactured ACRYLITE® Resist 65 sheet is a versatile, thermoplastic plastic developed for display and glazing and other applications that require strength, appearance, and weather-ability.

This high optical quality sheet provides the beautiful look of acrylic with much greater impact strength for durability during manufacturing, shipping, and in-store use. Rigid, tough, and lightweight, ACRYLITE® Resist is easily fabricated and machined, including cutting, routing, forming, and cementing.

Impact Strength

This superior performance sheet has many times the impact strength of glass and standard acrylic sheet.

Our resist sheet weighs half as much as glass.

Surface Hardness
With a greater surface hardness than polyesters, it reduces damage during fabrication and extends service life.

Light Transmission
Colorless ACRYLITE® Resist 65 light transmittance is greater than 91% (1/8” thickness). It retains high light-transmitting properties for many years.

Weather Resistance
It is manufactured from weather-able acrylic polymer. It can be used outdoors for many years with little loss of impact strength or its acrylic-like appearance.

Chemical Resistance
It is resistant to many chemicals, some of which include:

  • Solutions of inorganic alkalies
  • Diluted acids
  • Aliphatic hydrocarbons

It is attacked, in varying degrees by, but not limited to:

  • Aromatic solvents (i.e. benzene and toluene)
  • Alcohols
  • Chlorinated hydrocarbons (i.e. methylene chloride)
  • Lacquer thinners (esters, ketones, and ethers)

Acrylite Resist 65 meets FDA requirements for use in many food contact applications. This sheet is BPA-free (bisphenol) resistant to certain chemicals.
