Secondary Glazing of Home Windows


When it comes to sound proofing or insulating a room, secondary glazing the windows is the way to go.

For some of the design of the windows replacing them with double glazing becomes hard. In that case we can use acrylic for secondary glazing to complete the task.

Acrylic sheets can easily be used to save an existing window and provide sound and thermal protection.

Due to its availability online and also on stores, one can get a wide variety of acrylic sheet easily.

Extruded or cast acrylic secondary glazing?

Sometime its not a possibility to replace the whole window due to its aesthetics, shape or design.

A secondary window made out of acrylic is the best option which is cost effective and gets the work done.

Although in terms of quality acrylic sheets also comes in different variant of products. Two major type of acrylic are Extruded or cast acrylic. Cast acrylic is of higher quality and is more durable, Extruded acrylic is much cheaper but has its own advantages and disadvantages.

It is cheaper due to its production process; more acrylic sheets result from the same amount of raw material. The rolling process increases the internal tensions of the acrylic sheets, leaving them more prone to breaking that cast acrylic. Cast acrylic is poured into a moulded during production, which creates a sheet with almost no internal tensions.

We at acrylicsheetcuttosize recommend choosing a cast acrylic sheet when you are planning to make your secondary glazing.

For secondary glazing the best choice is clear acrylic. Acrylic sheets come in other shades and finishes, like frost or tinted acrylic.

Which are useful for creating a sunblock or a privacy screen. Acrylic can easily be ordered in our website. We recommend using a sheet that is at least 4 millimeters. know that acrylic can expand due to temperature change.

If you are plan on placing the secondary glazing inside the window frame, choose a sheet that is 5 mm less wide and 5 mm less high. With the correct installation

method, the sheet will stay right in its spot and have the necessary room to expand.

 

Installing secondary glazing

When placing against the window frame. It is much easier to mount or dismount the window, which makes it a good choice for temporary or seasonal purpose.

Acrylic Nameplate

Acrylic nameplate

Due to its durability and sturdy nature, acrylic sheets can be used in many numerous ways. Name plates in general are very easy to make and assemble. It can be a good DIY project and can be made with minimal effort.

Things you will need to make a nameplate

For cutting of acrylic sheet you would need a Jigsaw and for making holes to hang your nameplate you would require a variable speed drill. These are the only electrical tool you would need in this project. HSS drill is good for drilling holes in acrylic sheet, the cutting can be done with a fine-toothed saw for soft metals, such as aluminum. 

You would require a roll of masking tape for making the marks for sawing and drilling. When sawing it is very important to keep the edges neat, this can be done with the help of sandpaper grit 120-240.

Then for your name, you have the option to paint or engrave the lettering. For painting you can use acrylic paint and a brush. For engraving, you can use Dremel and an engraving drill. You would need a non-erasable marker or fineliner for marking out the letters.

Lettering and engraving the acrylic sheet:

To begin the real craftsmanship: marking the lettering. For lettering, regardless of whether you are going to paint or engrave, it should be at the back of the sheet. That means that you will have to work in mirror image later on. This is easier if you have a good template or you can get many templates online as well. You can simply mark the lettering on the foil on the front and print out your design. After that place it under the nameplate, and mark it on the front.

To start the engraving process of the sheet, after you have marked out your design at the back. Turn the acrylic sheet and remove the foil at the back. As precaution while engraving fine dust and high frequency sound is produced, so its good to use earplugs and a respirator that you can get from a general store. 

The engraving can be started with the outline of your design and letters, use engraving bit with a convex head of 1 to 2 millimeters wide. Don’t try to engrave in a hurry as the acrylic starts melting during machining. You will need to maintain low to moderate speed to keep the acrylic from melting or sticking to the machine. Practicing a little on a spare sheet before moving to real nameplate is always a good choice.

CLEANING POLYCARBONATE SHEET

CLEANING POLYCARBONATE SHEET

How to Clean and Take Care of Polycarbonate sheet

You have just bought a piece of polycarbonate sheet from our store, we sell a variety of thickness from 2mm to 10 mm. We at acrylicsheetcuttosize would like to give these golden rules of wisdom to help you get the most value out of your product. Your satisfaction is our number one priority.

The first Problem with cleaning and caring for polycarbonate sheet is the use of incorrect cleaners. It should be kept in mind never to use cleaners containing ammonia as they could do more harm than clean. Beware of using the cleaners such as Windex or 409 these will harm your newly bought polycarbonate. 

It is always better to do a little research beforehand when taking the task of cleaning a product that’s new, you would see that products which are specifically recommended for cleaning polycarbonate are Novus #1, or Brillianize, and a soft cloth. Which can be easily bought online or from retail shops.

Never use a dry cloth or your hand to clean your polycarbonate. By doing this the small particles of dust end up damaging the polycarbonate due to the friction.

When cleaning try to blow the dust or dirt off or use water and a soft cloth to float the dirt off. After that is done you can use a recommended cleaner to complete the cleaning. Also keep in mind that, a mild solution of dish detergent and warm water takes off stubborn dirt easily without doing any damage to the polycarbonate if you’ve run out of Novus #1 or Brillianize. If you don’t have the cleaning product then use water and a soft cloth.

The second Problem with polycarbonate is Sunlight.

While Plexiglass is NOT affected by the sun, polycarbonate is. Untreated or standard general-purpose polycarbonate is good for 5-7 years in the direct sun before it starts to haze and discolor a bit. It does not lose its strength but is less transparent. Products in the polycarbonate which are produced with a protective layer will not change much even in 15 years. Your headlight covers that discolor are also made of polycarbonate and a little buffing keeps them as new as they were the first day.

Removing Scratches from polycarbonate

Normal light scratches can be removed with a mild abrasive polish such as Novus#2 or Novus #3. Fine scratches cannot be removed with a mild abrasive polish such as Novus #2, or Novus #3. While the material looks similar to Plexiglas, it is made of carbon, not methyl methacrylate. 2 very different compounds. We Want You to Be Satisfied. We have offered these basic rules to guide you to years of satisfaction. If you experience any problems with your polycarbonate, have questions regarding cutting, drilling, buffing or are curious as to new materials available, please call or email us.

Acrylic comparison with Glass

Acrylic comparison with glass

Acrylic and glass in comparison are two different products. Due to its higher labor cost and a tedious process to make glass more resistant to breakage it becomes extremely costly. This is not good as compared to consumer market that demands cheaper products with higher quality and availability.

Acrylic sheet plastics cut to size | Acrylic comparison with Glass

When compared with Acrylic products glass is a very costly product and a lower life span. When a product is made in higher quantity the cost of production goes lower and with demand profit margins are lowered so that the consumer can choose that product.

Acrylic is very cost effective, because of lower labor work and easier to make as compared to glass. There are some major differences in between these products which makes one better than the other.

Weight Comparison

Acrylic is 50% lighter than Glass.

Impact resistance

Acrylic is 10-20 times stronger than glass, which make it more resistant to impact. When acrylic shatter in comparison to glass, it is in larger pieces as compared to glass which breaks into smaller pieces. Due to its lower weight it is much easier to work with.

Insulation

Manufacturing

Molding and extrusion of glass items are more expensive and requires much more energy.

Machining

Glass cannot be easily processed by sawing, milling and bending. It is a lot more difficult to change the shape of glass as compared to acrylic.

Scratch resistance

Glass is harder to scratch. Acrylic sheets can be supplied with a scratch-resistant coating (hard coating) which provides extra protection. While scratch-resistant acrylic is not nearly as scratch-resistant as glass. Small scratches in acrylic can be polished. Scratched glass must be replaced.

Light transmittance

Extruded Acrylic sheets

Extruded Acrylic sheets

As already mentioned in our previous blog post, Acrylic substance are synthetic resins that are formed by a chemical reaction that occurs with a monomer and a catalyst. These types of products are currently being used instead of glass due to their lighter weight by up to 50%. The acrylic products are even more transparent than glass itself.

Extruded Acrylic sheet
Extruded Acrylic sheets

Extruded acrylic sheet involves an uninterrupted manufacture producing method in which the acrylic atoms are first warmed up then moved through barrels in which the main chemical process takes place. Due to which as a result, extruded acrylic is diversified with properties that may differ with how the extrusion process has been completed.

It costs less than the cast acrylic but is more elastic and proportionally stable. What that means is that all over its thickness is more proportional across sheets. It is softer, its melting point is lower than Cast Acrylic. It is easier to laser cut due to its softness. Also, it is easier to polish due to its much softer nature, which in turn takes less effort to polish its surface. The downside of Extruded acrylic is that it is less resistant to dirt or lint. Due to its low melting point, it is mostly used for cementing and thermoforming.

Benefits of Extruded Acrylic sheets

We can summarize the benefits of extruded acrylic sheets as follows:

  • It is thermoformable, that is, it has the ability to be shaped easier using head and pressure.
  • Costs less than glass or Cast acrylic
  • It also has very best optical properties.
  • It is more resistant to impacts compared to pure glass
  • It has good electrical and Ultra Violet resistivity.

What is the difference between acrylic and plexiglass?

Acrylic sheet plastics cut to size | What is the difference between acrylic and plexiglass?

What is the difference between acrylic and plexiglass?

Usually Acrylic and Plexiglass are often mistaken as the same product, as they are both sheet plastic. Plexiglass is basically a trade or brand name for the acrylic and are made from acrylic, but there are many major differences on how the Acrylic is manufactured.

There are two processes in which acrylic are manufactured

  • Extruded/Extrusion Method
  • Cell cast

Extrusion method costs less to manufacture acrylic, but it poses two problems. One is that it tends to be much softer than cell cast acrylic, which leads it to be more prone to scratching. Secondly extruded acrylic can have impurities in its surface. Although it can look that it’s a deal breaker but this type of Acrylic can be fitting for areas where there is very less point of contact from such incidents which leads to scratching. As lower cost does save up a lot of expenses when dealing with higher volumes.

Cell cast acrylic on the other hand are more durable, and its surface is much harder because of the casting process. The process of cell casting is such that it is formed in a closed area. This reduces the chance for addition of impurities becoming lodged in the material. So, it looks clearer when the end product is made. Plexiglass is also a cell cast acrylic. Acrylic is “softer” than “plexiglass” but more forgiving under stress. It can withstand higher pressure before it breaks.

Knowing your product:

The most common problem about acrylic and plexiglass are the many names used in the plastic industry. Acrylic is the main name that indicates the type of polymer used in its manufacturing. Plexiglas is basically just a trade or brand name, it’s called plexiglass. So, if you were to go to a store and ask for acrylic, you will get what the store would have in the stock with them. As the “Acrylic” is the main product name for this, its better to ask for either “extruded acrylic” or “cell cast acrylic”. By knowing the different types of Acrylic and knowing the difference between them ensures you will get the right product.

Life Span of Acrylic products:

The lifespan of acrylic based plastic ranges from 7 to 10 years at most. This is usually the limited warranty that is given with acrylic products sold in the market, but this limited warranty only covers the fading and discoloration. Keep in mind that this does not mean this material will last the full 10 years life span, as there are factors involved which can hasten the fading and discoloration. Like for example if you live in an area with higher salt content in the air (humid or area near a beach), the acrylic material may start to show signs of decay sooner. This is true for contact with alcohol or ammonia with acrylic sheets, which can also show signs of fading and discoloration sooner. So, to put it in simple terms the harder the surface the more life you may get out of your acrylic product.
