Hard at work machining some cast acrylic rod today! Acrylic or Poly(methyl methacrylate) is commonly known as Plexiglass to many but in actuality, Plexiglass is just a common brand name of this material. Notice how it hazes when machined? This is an advantage in light diffusing applications such as this job. We will be polishing one end of this rod once complete back to a glass finish. Machined acrylic parts can be found in many industries including medical device and testing, lighting/optics, and semiconductor processing. PlasTex Precision in Houston, TX specializes in plastics machining. How can we help you today?
