The largest block of perfectly clear ACRYLITE® ever made is just our starting point.

Not only does AAT Acrylics make enormous acrylic blocks of exceptional quality, we bond them together to create viewing-panels of phenomenal size, strength and clarity. In aquariums, these mega-panels provide breathtaking visitor experiences.
