Acrylic (Perspex®) Sheet

Acrylic (Perspex®) Sheet



Acrylic (Perspex®) sheet is commonly used in display and signage applications due to its extensive range of colours. It is easy to machine, cut, drill and polish and can also be fabricated and formed. It has outstanding UV resistance and is resistant to some weak acids and alkalis. Acrylic (Perspex®) sheet is also commonly used in engineering applications where a clear plastic is required in a greater thickness available in Polycarbonate or PETG. Acrylic (Perspex®) sheet is not suitable for application requiring high impact strength.

Temperature: Up to +70°C (+90°C short term).

Key Features: Excellent optical properties, lightweight, good resistance to weak acids and alkalis.

Applications: Display cases, decorative shelving, displays, lighting, sight glass, working models & signage.

Acrylic sheet can be manufactured cast or extruded. Each method offers slightly different mechanical qualities.

Cast Acrylic

The high surface quality is achieved by casting against glass. It is long term weather resistant with no colour discolouration allowing 92% transmission of light. Cast acrylic should be used where light and weathering are important factors.

Extruded Acrylic

Chemically resistant extruded thermoplastic with low water absorption. Resistant to weathering. Ideal for machine guards, prototype models signs, and screens.


Also available: Acrylic (Perspex®) Rod and Acrylic (Perspex®) Tube.

Colour: Extensive range available.
