Military Spec Sheet
ACRYLITE® military spec sheet is made to exacting standards. Half the weight of glass with many times the impact resistance, ACRYLITE® military specification offers excellent optical characteristics, thickness tolerances, light stability, and low internal stress levels for consistent performance. ACRYLITE® military specification sheet is weatherable and can be easily cut, sawed, machined, thermoformed and cemented. Evonik Cyro has consistently manufactured acrylic mil spec products for both military and commercial aircraft applications.
ACRYLITE® 249 acrylic sheet meets and is certified to MIL-P-8184F (Type II, Class 2). ACRYLITE® 249 is a cross-linked cast acrylic sheet with increased resistance to crazing and solvent attack, as well as improved dimensional stability after heating. This specification requires optical quality cast acrylic sheet that is superior to conventional acrylic sheet. ACRYLITE® 249 sheet is used in a wide variety of aviation and ground vehicle transparencies in monolithic or laminated form.
ACRYLITE® GMS acrylic sheet meets and is certified to MIL-P-5425E for use in the aviation industry as a laminate part or as a stand alone sheet. It has the optical quality, hardness and sheet tolerance required by the industry. It is manufactured using equipment that is reserved for aviation acrylic products and is subjected to a rigorous optical inspection, the most critical in the industry. Current applications include instrument panels, wingtip lenses, dust covers, helicopter bubbles and aircraft canopies.
ACRYLITE® GMU sheet is a cell cast acrylic sheet designed for general aviation and helicopter window applications and is superior to standard cell cast acrylics in both optical quality and thickness tolerance. It is manufactured using the same process and the exacting optical requirements as product manufactured to meet MIL P-8184F and MIL P-5425E. ACRYLITE® GMU sheet is a good choice for meeting the difficult optical requirements of MIL P-8184F and P-5425E, but is more economical and ideal for many non-military aircraft applications.
