Description

acrylic dice radiumAcrylic, or poly(methyl methacrylate), was invented in 1928 and first marketed in 1933 as safety glass thanks to its shatter resistant nature. Since its inception Methacrylate has been synthesized in about a dozen different methods leading to twice that many trademarked names for poly(methyl methacrylate). Names like Lucite, Plexiglass, ACRYLITE, and Perspex are all essentially the exact same thing with some very minor differences due in part to how the methacrylate was produced. The PMMA we use in crafting our Alchemist’s Dice is manufactured by Lucite.

Acrylic’s are used in many applications from aquariums, to helmet visors, and even bulletproof body panels for armored vehicle. It’s also used for aircraft canopies and in making ballistic glass. Depending on the application, acrylic is either produced in a casting process or it is extruded, as is the case with the acrylic beads used in injection molding. We chose cast acrylic rod as our base material over, the much less expensive, extruded acrylic as the casting process gives us a significantly increased optical clarity.

alchemist dice compairsonEach of our Acrylic dice are individually machined and the polished in 5 stages to bring back the optimal clarity and luster inherent to cast acrylic. This process is labor intensive but as you can see in the image to the right, it produces far superior results to injection molded acrylic dice.

PLEASE NOTE: We no longer use laser cut acrylic boxes, all of our dice have been upgraded to include our standard box as chosen above..

    Seems like you just can’t decide on the name for these dice; first it’s Radium, then it’s Aether, then Radium, …

    These look great! I would love to see a brighter/neon green one… Or maybe even like a Smoke/Black color… I will definitely have to mark these as a favorite for when I can afford a set…

    • Pirate Jarnes
