Plastic Domes

Acrylic Domes

Acrylic Domes can be produced in sizes from 2" diameter up to 48" diameter with a maximum height of half the diameter. Our equipment is capable of making domes with material as thin as 1/8" and as thick as 1/2". Most folks order domes in 3/16" or 1/4" thicknesses. A standard acrylic dome will come with a 1" flange that can be removed at an additional cost.

Polycarbonate Domes

Polycarbonate domes are trickier to form than acrylic domes and require the material be dried for up to 12 hours in our ovens prior to forming. Polycarbonate  absorbs moisture which can vaporize during heating and cause bubbles. This results in a higher cost of production. Polycarbonate domes only come as thick as 1/4" with a max height 33% that of the diameter.
