Ok so I went to tap, and they wanted $1070 I believe for a 4’x8’ 1”thick. I was going to pick it up on Monday but if piedmont is half the price I’ll give them a call before. Thanks again guys.

Ok so piedmont was way cheaper, literally half the price from tap. $542 for a full 4’x8’  1” thick sheet. Cool guys thanks. 

I don't know what you are going to use that for but at that price, you have extruded acrylic which is NOT, i repeat NOT suitable for aquariums.  You need cast acrylic for aquarium construction.  A sheet of 1" cast is going to be about $900 on a good day. (the good days ended in 2020 by the way).

Looks like this is 3/4", not 1".  Right?    The receipt description implies Cast Acrylic to me.

Not even 3/4" that would be .750 receipt says .708........ I do see the cast though........

I was thinking the same thing, except I found a reference on a site selling clear cast acrylic, 3/4" thick sheets (0.708)...   Heck, maybe acrylic is like lumber.   A "2x4" is less than 2 inches x 4 inches.  :)

Think it is all in millimeters converted to the closest inch measurement.  0.708" is 18mm.  If you get 1/8" thick it is actually 0.118" or 3mm.
