Tex-Stretch Acrylic Manufacturing

Texstars built and certified one of the most advanced stretched-acrylic manufacturing systems in the world. This proprietary equipment allows Texstars to stretch three different standard sheet sizes and up to 3.3″ thick billets. The computer-driven stretching system allows precise control of key processing variables in order to maximize Tex-Stretch® performance properties. This material is listed on the official U.S. government qualified products list for use in the manufacture of high-quality transparencies for aircraft.
