How to make Acrylic Cylinders tank

Every project is designed and executed with special attention and utmost care of the client. A project from conception to execution goes through several stages of Calculations and certification, according to its complexity. After the concept is finalized, the project reaches its Structural Engineering phase. Here, the PMMA is analysed purely as a Structural entity that is capable of transferring loads around to the designed supporting structures, as well as to withstand other loads applied on it in case of worst-case scenario.

When the design fully meets the requirements, we begin to make acrylic cylinder, we are divided into the following steps to make.

Make iron molds


High-temperature softening

Acrylic sheet production is completed, we began to make molds, because acrylic cylinder is curved sheet splicing, acrylic sheet from flat to arc, we need hot bending molding.

When the acrylic sheet enters the high temperature environment, the acrylic sheet will soften, because the acrylic sheet is a plastic material, the plasticity is very strong, and the mold needs to be shaped.


The mold size is accurate and can withstand pressure

Many factories use wood to make molds, which is suitable for small size acrylic cylinder, when the cylinder is large enough, you need to make iron molds.

The molds of Leyu are customized, according to the size of the acrylic cylinder to customize.

For the requirements of the mold, the size must be accurate, the surface of the mold must be flat, and the mold must be able to withstand the weight of acrylic.




From acrylic sheet to curved acrylic sheet

1. Place the acrylic sheet on the mold

2, Heating, making the acrylic sheet hot bending molding

3, After cooling, polishing treatment.

Acrylic cylinder production:

Chemical bond splicing:

The acrylic arc plate is spliced in turn, the joint is 3-6mm, and the splicing is the polymerization reaction.

The splicing process of Leyu is not the glue that can be bought on the market, and the chemical bond is developed by Leyu.

If the cylinder meets the transportation requirements, the acrylic cylinder can be sent to the customer after the factory is finished. If the acrylic cylinder cannot be transported, the Leyu factory can go to the scene to splice. Leyu factory has rich experience in splicing and on-site installation.

At What Temperature Can You Curve Acrylic Panels?

To create a curved acrylic panel, you need to bend an acrylic sheet.

To do this, you need a softened acrylic sheet.

You can soften the sheet by applying some amount of heat.

It is, however, important to note that you need to heat the acrylic material only to the extent that it softens.

If you overheat the sheet, it will melt down.

The right temperature to soften the sheet is 320° F (160° C).

Its heat-resistant properties do not work beyond this temperature.


What Are The Tools Needed To Bend An Acrylic Sheet To Make A Curved Acrylic Panel?

We need to customize the mold according to the size of the curved acrylic sheet, which can be made of wood or iron. We also need to prepare some fixtures.

Place the acrylic sheet on the mold, soften it at high temperature, and then heat bend it into shape.


What Are Curved Acrylic Panels Used For?

Curved acrylic panels offer multiple use cases.

You can use a curved acrylic panel for many things, from furniture to décor.

Some of the most common uses of curved acrylic panels are discussed below.


· Aquariums

Public aquariums meant for recreational sightseeing is one of the best uses of curved acrylic panels.

Less refraction of light and less distortion makes curved acrylic panels a better alternative than glass aquariums.

Curved acrylic panels, even with their bent structure, do not cause any image distortion.

At the same time, curved acrylic panels are stronger than glass.

This makes them a better choice for holding the weight of the water inside an enormous aquarium.

You can also use large-sized curved acrylic panels for sightseeing aquariums, aquarium hotels, and cafés.

· Windows and Windscreens

Another great use case for curved acrylic panels is in the automobile sector.

From cars, submarines, and speedboats to trains, metros, and buses, curved acrylic panels are widely used in this industry.

They offer clearer visibility along with a sturdier structure.

You will find they are also tougher than glass.

Their resistance against breakage is an added advantage.

Even in case of any breakage, the sheet breaks down into large pieces and not a lot of small pieces that can hurt someone.

This effectively reduces the chances of getting injured in case the sheet breaks.

Moreover, they do not yellow over time.

Less maintenance makes them a preferred choice for automobiles.


· Art and Craft Work

You can use curved acrylic panels to paint or use as part of your artwork.

Some people even buy curved acrylic crockery because of their shatterproof properties.

In comparison to glassware, curved acrylic panels are more durable and require less maintenance.


· Table Counters

Many commercial spaces, particularly cafés and showrooms, make use of curved acrylic panels for their table counters.


· Rooftops

Curved acrylic panels are popularly used for making rooftops.

A roof shed made of a clear curved acrylic panel lets ample light into the room.

It does not require a lot of maintenance, making it a suitable option for a rooftop.

The UV-resistant properties of a high quality curved acrylic panel allow it to stand enough heat without any adverse effects on the panel.

You can also use a curved acrylic panel for making a greenhouse for your plants.

Large-scale greenhouses use huge curved acrylic panels with a thickness of 2-3 mm.

These panels are not only heat and UV-resistant but also reflect enough light to reach the plants inside.

They do not yellow in the sun and also protect the greenhouse from getting too hot when the temperature is hot.

Their weather-resistant quality makes curved acrylic panels a preferred choice for greenhouse rooftops.

· Home Furniture

Curved acrylic panels also offer great utility for making furniture.

You can get a unique bathtub made of curved acrylic panels.

How thick is acrylic glass for swimming pool?

As Southeast Asia, European and American countries began to use acrylic as side(s) and bottom of swimming pools. The acrylic swimming pool market has gradually come under the spotlight, and acrylic has started to be widely used in resort hotels, private villas and high-end clubs for infinity pools and transparent pool construction.

The types of acrylic pools are mainly divided into Acrylic Pools with one side acrylic wall (picture below), it is a simple and economical design; Acrylic Pools with L-shaped acrylic wall, it is generally adjacent sides spliced (picture below), the unique corner design is often used in commercial buildings; overhanging pool with acrylic bottom (picture below), you can enjoy the ground and farther scenery in the suspended swimming pool when you swim.

How thick is acrylic glass for swimming pool?The thickness of acrylic glass used for swimming pools can vary depending on factors such as the size of the pool, water pressure, and design specifications. Generally, acrylic panels for pool construction can range from around 2 inches (50 mm) to 12 inches (300 mm) in thickness. Thicker panels are often used for larger pools or those with greater water depth to ensure structural integrity and safety. It's recommended to consult with a professional pool designer or engineer to determine the appropriate thickness for a specific pool project.

Thickness tolerances for Acrylic sheet

Thickness tolerance of ACRYLITE® cast sheet

The thickness tolerances for acrylic sheets can vary depending on the manufacturing process and the specific grade of acrylic. Generally, standard tolerances for acrylic sheet thickness range from ±5% to ±10%. This means that the actual thickness of the sheet may deviate by a certain percentage from the nominal or specified thickness.

For example, if you have a 1/4-inch (6.35 mm) thick acrylic sheet with a tolerance of ±5%, the actual thickness could be between 0.2375 inches (6.0325 mm) and 0.2625 inches (6.7275 mm).

It's important to check with the manufacturer or supplier for the exact tolerances of the acrylic sheets you are using, as these specifications can vary. Additionally, precision-cutting methods and the quality of the manufacturing process can also influence the final thickness tolerances.

How thick should acrylic be for a pool wall?

How thick is acrylic glass for swimming pool?The thickness of acrylic glass for swimming pool walls can vary depending on the size and depth of the pool, as well as the design and structural requirements. In general, the thickness of acrylic glass used for swimming pools ranges from 20mm (0.79 inches) to 100mm (3.94 inches) or more.

For smaller pools or aquariums, a thickness of 20mm to 40mm may be sufficient, while larger pools or those with greater water pressure may require thicker acrylic glass. The thickness of the acrylic glass should be determined by a structural engineer or an expert in the field to ensure that it can withstand the water pressure and other forces that it will be subjected to.

Leyu Organic Glass Products Factory specializes in producing acrylic panels. The factory was established in 1996 and has been in the field of thick panels for 27 years. The thickness of acrylic sheets ranges from 20mm(0.656 inches) to 800mm(2.62inches).

How thick is acrylic glass for swimming pool? If used as the wall or bottom plate of a swimming pool, the thickness of acrylic panels is related to the water level of the pool, and the design scheme also needs to be considered. The water pressure borne by acrylic panels varies at different depths, and the thickness of acrylic panels also varies. Thickness calculation requires finding a professional manufacturer to calculate. Leyu Factory uses professional software to calculate and has rich practical experience to help you choose the correct thickness. Regarding thickness calculation, this is a rigorous matter as it determines the safety of the project.

What Thickness of Plastic Is Suitable for Your Project?

If the depth of your swimming pool water level is 0.5m-0.8m(1ft 7.68in to 2ft 7.5in), the height of acrylic sheet is 650mm to 800mm(2ft1.6in-2ft7.5in), then the thickness of acrylic sheet can be 70mm (2.75inches), and the installation depth of acrylic sheet is 150mm (5.9inches). After installation, the visible size of acrylic sheet is 500mm-650mm(1ft9.65in-2ft1.6in).

The above is my example, suitable for three sided support. Of course, the thickness calculation also needs to consider the design scheme. If the installation is four sided support, the thickness of the acrylic sheet will be less than 70mm.

Therefore, for acrylic swimming pools, the thickness design of acrylic wall panels and acrylic bottom plates will be comprehensively considered based on the overall design scheme. Please contact a professional factory: Zhangjiagang city Leyu plexiglass® products factory
