R-cast Ice is an acrylic textured product (polymethyl methacrylate) which simulates the appearance of ice without any repetitive patterns. It has similar light diffusing qualities as real ice, particularly with light refractions off the surface when paired with nearly any type lighting.
Each material is custom cast, and created with an advanced acrylic casting process, which offers better thermoforming properties and aesthetical qualities. R-Cast Ice is available in sheets up to 4″ x 8″ (1.2 m x 2.4 m) and in 0.50” (12.7 mm) and 1” (25.4 mm) thicknesses. Because the product is completely randomized, all thickness measurements are made from the base of the material to the top of an ice “peak”. The acrylic used is strong, light, transparent, UV light & Weather resistant
The material is available in several sizes, colours, textures, surface treatments and edge finishes. Note that Reynolds Polymer Technologysupplies not only supplies the material, but also provides full product maintenance-service and complete designers support
