The difference between SAR Super Abrasion Resistant Acrylic sheet and conventional acrylic sheet or glass is clear. SAR is produced by applying a very hard, polysilicate coating to an acrylic substrate. This coating provides SAR with a surface that has 45 times the abrasion resistance of uncoated acrylic, making it an attractive material for applications that require the safety (e.g. windshields), optical (e.g. Marine Portholes) and aesthetic (e.g. sunroofs) qualities of acrylic along with a highly abrasion-resistant surface coating.
LIGHT WEIGHT & FABRICATION FLEXIBILITY CUT INSTALLATION COSTS
At half the weight of glass, SAR makes handling easier and safer, and installation less costly and time consuming. It can be cut and fabricated at the installation site using power tools. In fact, SAR® is ideal for glass replacement installations; because it is readily fitted into existing frames.
OPTICAL CLARITY OUTSHINES OTHER MATERIALS
SAR in 30mm thickness transmits 93% white light, compared to 66% for an all polycarbonate sheet and 55% for bullet-resistant glass. Also, its edges are clear, avoiding the massive appearance of thick glass with its greenish tinted edge. That adds up to the sparkling clear, open look that is more appealing to customers.
ABRASION RESISTANT, CLEANABLE & SAFE
SAR has 45X the abrasion resistance of uncoated acrylic, resists more chemicals than uncoated acrylic, and is impact and shatter resistant (5X impact resistance of glass)

Essentially SAR can be used as a glass replacement for almost any application.
In particular SAR is a great, cost effective alternative for balustrade applications.
