Opal frosted acrylic sheeting (also known as Opal acrylic) is an elegant material with light diffusing properties which make it useful in a number of situations.

Key Features:

  • Lightweight
  • Low cost
  • Impact resistant
  • Superb chemical resistance
  • Easy to clean and maintain
  • Suitable for use in food environments
  • 70% light transmission
  • Supplied with protective film on both sides

This material has all of the same benefits of regular acrylic sheet (as mentioned above), but with the overall effect is an opal or white appearance.

Opal is a semi translucent material which allows approximately 70% light transmission. Great for creating opaque effects for light boxes and allowing illumination from behind without showing the detail.

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


    Perfect for use as a lightweight and low maintenance alternative to glass, particularly where safety may be a concern, frosted acrylic is a terrific material for a number of applications including:

    • Bath and shower screens
    • Secondary glazing
    • Privacy screens
    • Light boxes
    • Photography
    • Internal windows

    is perfect for my project


    Cut to perfect size, delivered very quicklyReviewed by Cbowden27 on 11 Nov 2018

    I ordered three custom size sheets as an alternative to glass window panels. All fitted perfectly, do the job well, and were delivered even more quickly than I'd expected. Value for money was also very good, so I'm a happy customer
