I will have to agree with dskidmore. I priced some acrylic on a website and the shipping was horendous. Getting full sheets of lexan, 4'x8', would of costed me an extra couple hundred bucks. They wanted to deliver it on a semi construction style. The plastic company in town would be the best bet. If they dont have it in stock they will be glad to order it for you most of the time. The cement your refering to is called Weld-On. Its an acrylic solvent, kind of like pvc
solvent, works the same way but designed for acrylic or lexan. Again the plastic company will sell this to. Otherwise if ordering it over the internet they will charge you extra on shipping for hazardous material. HTH
Ps. The Weld-On requires special applicator tools to use. Strongly suggest getting more than one. The needles on them occasionally get gloged from the melted plastic and trying to poke them clean doesn't allways work.
