What is Clear Acrylic Tubing?


Clear acrylic tube is a tube-shaped polymer that is created by chemically-combining carbon molecules and then either extruding or casting the resin to take on the physical attributes of the tubing.

Physical Attributes of Acrylic

Acrylic is a thermoplastic that softens under extremely high temperatures. This allows it to be formed into an endless range of shapes and sizes. Because it is so durable across such a wide temperature range, acrylic offers the benefit of superior weathering properties over other types of plastics. Tubing is just one application for this highly durable material.

Clear acrylic tubing is lightweight and also offers the benefit of non-yellowing, non-clouding, and it has a higher resilience than other type of plastic tubing. In fact, when manufactured properly, tubing made from clear acrylic withstands weather and sun exposure with no loss of light remittance, clarity, and strength and should not discolor or decrease in performance for at least ten years. As a thermal insulator, acrylic tubing offers 20% greater insulation than glass.
