Saw Cut Edge

Saw Cut edge is the standard edge for all cut acrylic. It is chip free and does not need polishing if you're engaging the edge. Saw-cutting acrylic is one of the most cost effective ways for precise finishing and finds applications across various industries, including automotive, adhesives, building materials, medical devices, and more. Saw Cut Edge requires professional handling to ensure all pieces are even but delivers consistent, dependable results.


Milled Edge

The acrylic is run through a high-speed joiner for a frosted edge, producing a "modern look" and low-cost finishes with no saw cuts. This process results in a frosted look that doesn't include any saw cuts, allowing you to achieve a modern design without breaking the bank. It's an ideal option for those wanting to make their work look more finished while remaining mindful of the budget.

Flame Polishing

The edges are milled and given a high sheen by passing a flame of 800° F over them. This is ideal for the conventional application of acrylic, such as a tabletop. Do not clean acrylic that has been flame-polished using Windex, alcohol, or any ammonia-based cleansers. This flame polishing acrylic procedure produces powerful and visually appealing results.

Machine Polishing

Machine polishing is a low-cost, low-stress method of polishing thicker acrylic. During the process, it is possible to silk screen the material. Machine polishing necessitates using a specialized industrial plastic polishing machine that causes as little distress to the material as possible while providing a high-quality finish. This procedure yields improved results that are guaranteed to last.

Hand Polishing

Surfaces can be hand polished to an unrivaled level of finish. The procedure is thorough and involves numerous steps. Milling the edges to remove saw cuts, sanding through four different grits of wet-dry sandpaper, buffing with a cutting polish, and then buffing with a fine finish are all steps in the hand-polishing process. As a result, the edge polish is of Museum standard. Hand polishing may convert dull metal into something remarkable.

Full Beveled Edge

Bevels are frequently used to soften a piece's edge for safety, wear resistance, aesthetics, or to make mating with other parts easier. A full bevel edge is required for jobs to be completed safely, effectively, and aesthetically.

With their impressive range of applications, full beveled edges are often called upon to complete projects with aesthetically pleasing finishes and ergonomic design considerations.

Half Beveled Edge

Bevels are widely used to round off sharp edges for safety, wear resistance, aesthetics, or to make one component more easily match another. A half-beveled edge is created by grinding or sawing the edge at an angle other than 90 degrees with a bevel, which can be useful in various applications. Depending on the situation, beveled edges can be inside or outside corners.

This technology is frequently used in precision part manufacturing, metallurgy, carpentry, and automotive applications. Bevels that are done correctly ensure the exact assembly of machined components and a nice uniform finish on your product.


Roundover Edge

A smooth curved edge stops halfway down the edge. Roundover edges are an attractive and effective way to round off the straight lines of an object, such as a piece of furniture or art. It's a great way to soften the look while maintaining architectural integrity. The roundover shape can add character, reduce wear and tear, and protect wood and metal materials.



Bullnose Edge

Adding bullnose edges to your countertop, also known as a roundover of the top and bottom edges, is an excellent way to give your countertop a sleek and professional appearance.

This edging gives the surface a polished finish while providing additional protection from accidental bumps or chips. It's generally achieved by using either a router with a bullnose bit or by laminating bullnose strips to the countertop.
