Need Help Sourcing Translucent Plastics.

Recommended Posts

So I'm in charge of producing two prototypes, that call for a translucent piece of plastic that will be milled and polished out. Thing is, I don't want just a generic smoke or tint, I want something REALLY dark, as it will be milled to about 1mm thick in front of an OLED screen. I'd like either jet black, or really dark blue. I'm having a lot of trouble finding anywhere I can purchase plastic like this, it seems like most plastic suppliers just have the generic "smoked" or "tinted" acrylic sheets, that's it.

 

Anybody have any ideas?

I suggest you can try PU casting,you can get different color and transparence if you modify the toner

Is this for prototype or production? If prototype, you can dial it in custom to exactly how you want it to look at whatever thickness. Then you'll have a sample in hand to be specific with production material suppliers.
