Thanks for the replies. I did not realize that cast acrylic is considered a themoset. It can be re-heated and bent - that describes a thermoplastc, but if you consider the crosslinking, it is a thermoset!
I also found on the Internet, that by flame testing, Cast will crackle when burning, but not drip, extruded drips and no crackle. I have several scrap pieces I tested with the results:
1) Blue tinted 1/8" thick: crackles loudest, no drip (will eventually drip if left burning awhile). Probably cast.
2) Bronze tinted 3/16": crackles, lots of bubbles. Drips after a few seconds. cast?
3) clear 3/32": burns nearly silent, lots of bubbles, drips. extruded?
4) clear 3/32": burns silent, little bubbling, most fluid when hot. appears to be extruded. bg
