Description

Clear Perspex® extruded acrylic is a versatile plastic sheet which is ideal for general fabrication purposes. As a cheaper alternative to cast acrylic, extruded Perspex® acrylic sheet is lightweight, impact resistant and easy to work with.

We offer clear Perspex® acrylic cut to size in a variety of thicknesses from 2mm - 15mm.

Key Features:

  • Lightweight and impact resistant
  • Uniform thickness and smooth finish
  • Better impact resistance than glass
  • Strong and durable
  • Chemical resistant
  • Easy to clean
  • Low moisture absorption rate
  • UV resistant - 10 year outdoor guarantee
  • Up to 92% light transmission - higher than most traditional types of glass
  • Sheet manufacturing process: Extruded 
  • Can be written on with a whiteboard marker pen
  • Suitable for laser cutting
  • Supplied with protective film on both sides

Unlike Cast Acrylic, Extruded Acrylic sheets are manufactured by extruding the resin over a production line which offers a uniform thickness and an excellent surface finish. A superb replacement for glass in a number of applications, Extruded Acrylic is as much as ten times more resistant to impact than glass and has excellent UV stability.

This makes it a popular choice of material for replacement greenhouse panels and secondary glazing, where it can offer 15-20 years of flawless service in all weathers. It performs well wherever a strong, lightweight and shatterproof material is required – particularly in environments where safety is a concern.

Clear acrylic is also known by the trade names of Perspex®, Lucite, Altuglas and Plexiglass.

    In addition to its strength, the versatility of Perspex sheet acrylic is further broadened by its light weight, resistance to chemicals and a low moisture absorption rate which makes it suitable for food contact and for use in hygienic environments.

    It is easily maintained and can be cleaned with a soft cloth and a little soap and warm water.

    Please Note: our current machines work to a tolerance of +/- 1mm. Please enter your requirements to the nearest whole mm.

    Great productReviewed by David.smith593 on 16 Apr 2019

    Sheets were cut exactly to size and finished well. Packaging was first class ensuring they were not damage in transit. I had to do a small amount of trimming myself due to my own inaccuracies building the frame but it was easy to work with. Would definitely buy again.

      Can you tell me if this product is suitable for replacement glass in a large picture frame?
      Hi, For picture glazing we would recommend our anti-reflective acrylic as it has UV protection and will dramatically reduce glare and reflections.
