5 Axis Machined Plastic Manifold
5 Axis machining capabilities allows Connecticut Plastics to shrink lead times and help you get your device to market faster.
An inherently lightweight yet rigid material, acrylic provides a cost-effective and versatile alternative to glass and other heavier plastics. It easily withstands the heat from sunlight, cold weather, and dramatic temperature changes, making it a reliable performer in applications requiring outdoor exposure. With a clear, colorless and transparent surface, acrylic provides nearly distortion-free clarity when used in windows, displays, signage and lighting fixtures.
Acrylic is dimensionally stable, preventing shrinkage over time. This easily handled and processed material can be machined, thermoformed, sawed, drilled, laser-cut, filed, and polished, and is ideally installed in frames. Like many plastics, acrylic expands and contracts with temperature changes, and framing will need to be designed accordingly.
