Plexiglass cast acrylic tubing is more expensive than extruded plexiglass tubing due to the way it is manufactured and the labor involved in producing and polishing the material. The difference is truly amazing and required for any high stress or pressurized environments.
The clarity of a cast plexiglass tube mimics that of glass since it is cast in a mold, then polished inside and out. Cast tubing is significantly stronger and more chemical resistant than extruded tubing and recommended for all lab applications and whenever fabricating the material.
Plexiglass cast acrylic tube is sold and priced by the foot.
