Coloured Acrylic Sheets : Green Cast Acrylic (Gloss Finish)

image of Green Cast Acrylic (Gloss Finish)

Green Cast Acrylic (Gloss Finish)

Acrylic sheets have been used for a huge range of applications since it initially came on the market in 1933. Coloured acrylic is especially popular for kitchen splashbacks, often in the place of an expensive glass alternative. Our range of cast acrylic is available in a variety of vibrant colours, which are guaranteed to liven up any kitchen.

One of the other key attributes that have made cast acrylic so successful is its weight when compared to alternative materials, such as glass. Cast acrylic is half the weight of glass, but is also more durable and resistant to impacts, reducing the likelihood of breakage from falls or forceful impacts. Other key features include:   

  • Unaffected by sun or salt spray
  • Temperature range of -30 to 160° F for continuous service
  • Good outdoor weathering
  • Easy and cost effective fabrication
  • Fully recyclable
  • Excellent surface hardness and durability
  • Superb chemical resistance - better than most plastics
  • Food grade
  • Easy to clean and maintain
Please Note: Acrylic sheets should not be used at the rear of gas/electric hobs without protection or within close proximity to a high heat source.

Colour of sheets may differ slightly due to variances in your computer display.

Q. Is acrylic sheeting suitable for use as a splashback behind a hob or oven?

A: No. Temperatures of over 60°C will affect acrylic, so it is not suitable for use in close proximity to heatsources. A popular solution is to protect the acrylic splashback directly behind the heat source with a sheet of toughened glass.

Coloured acrylic sheet is a lightweight and strong material with a superb aesthetic which is suitable for a variety of uses including:

  • Retail displays
  • Kitchen splashbacks
  • Bathroom splashbacks
  • Advertising boards
  • Wall cladding
  • Innovative interior design
