Pilkington has been a manufacturer and supplier of high quality glass to the Acrylic casting market for over 70 years.
A high quality specially toleranced float glass, manufactured solely for Pilkington’s use is used. This gives us the special flatness to the glass which makes it ideal for use in Acrylic Casting manufacture.
The thickness tolerance of the glass is maintained at a high level along with the wedge of the glass to provide a high tolerance glass mould.
As the clear glasses can be used on both sides for casting, this allows the Manufacturer of Acrylic sheets greater flexibility.
Prior to usage, Pilkington can offer the service of providing the Best Match pairing data for the customer to re-pair in order to make extremely high tolerance Acrylic sheets.
All glasses are paired in case ready for immediate use.
