Acrylic is a transparent thermos plastic often used in sheet form as a light weight, shatter-resistant alternative to glass. Clear acrylic (3mm thick) transmits up to 92% of visible light. This is higher than glass and superior to other clear plastic sheet materials. It is hard wearing, weather resistant and has a high gloss surface. If you need a clear plastic material which is more impact, chemical and heat resistant then please go to our Polycarbonate material page. Acrylic can have many uses and is a durable material to cut, cement and weld together. If you require more than a flat cut panel please contact our sales office.
