Production Methods

Gevacril Logo

GEVACRIL® is devoted to deliver the highest quality possible. Every single item is individually checked and graded with respect to the strict criteria of our QUALITY DESCRIPTION SYSTEM (QDS) before its quality is approved. Generally, we have two lines of products:

GEVACRIL® EXTRUDED

Extruded tubes, rods and bars are polymerized plastic semi-finished products. They are manufactured through extrusion, i.e., they are squeezed out of the machines like toothpaste from a tube. After the production process they are clear and bright both on the internal and the external wall. High purity, brightness and transparency are their most important characteristics; besides they are very high impact resistance and an unequalled resistance against weather conditions and ageing.

GEVACRIL® CAST

Cast acrylic tubes, rods, bars and balls are really cast as a single piece and are individually polished. The result is a real, transparent piece of glass - acrylic glass, of course! Obviously, they cost more than the extruded version, but cast products can be tapped, drilled and machined without melting and have a higher working and service temperatures.
They are more resistant to stress, weathering, aging and some weak chemicals that would attack the extruded version.
