While UV filtering acrylic is generally the most commonly used for blocking out harmful UV rays, UV transmitting acrylic can also be used in applications requiring UV-A (long wavelength low frequency) and UV-B (short wavelength high frequency) light. UV-A light (320-400 nm) and UV-B light (280-320 nm) are used in a variety of applications, from medical treatment to suntanning. UV transmitting acrylic sheet is transparent to UV light and provides the superior quality and clarity needed in these applications. If blocking UVA and UVB rays isn't a concern for your specific project, you can use UV transmitting plexiglass. Although standard plexiglass transmits UV rays, it doesn't have the extra protection this specialized plastic provides. UV Transmitting acrylic sheet is made to be strong and resist degradation that commonly comes with continuous, long-term exposure to UV rays.
