About the material

Accura ClearVue is a translucent material with a good balance of aesthetic and physical properties. Comparable to machined Polycarbonate, this material has substantial durability, considerable moisture resistance, and a smooth surface finish. Additionally, Accura ClearVue with Clear Coat can achieve the highest level of transparency out of our material offerings. It’s the most suitable for high clarity applications, like optics, packaging, and visualization models or assemblies.
