Looking after coloured Perspex® sheets

We're often asked how to best clean acrylic Perspex® sheets.  Please  use a soft cotton cloth to clean acrylic with warm soapy water.  Alterantively, we're very impressed with results from acrylic cleaner Vuplex which polishes acrylic to a high shine in minutes, keeping acrylic looking like brand new.  Add it to your order for our promotional price of £6.98.

Notes

We recommend you purchase a sample to check colour before placing larger orders.

Translucent Acrylic allows a transmission of a minimal amount of light. Whilst you cannot see through the translucent acrylic an object behind it would show a shadow.

Solid Acrylic colours are not see through.

Our Most Frequently Asked Questions

Can acrylic be used behind a hob ?

Acrylic can be used for kitchen splashbacks but the following distances should be kept between the outer edge of your hob and the acrylic: at least 60mm for ceramic hobs and at least 200mm for gas hobs. Acrylic is not suitable for use behind an Aga or similar range cooker.
See our splashback pages for further details.

Can acrylic be used in bathrooms ?
Acrylic can be used for bathroom splashbacks, shower splashbacks and bath panels. 

Acrylic can be delivered at a maximum size of 3m x 2m meaning it is possible to cover a large area without the need for any seams (this means no more grouting !). 

Because acrylic is so light, lfting acrylic and fixing it to walls is a fairly straightforward DIY task.  See our acrylic splashbacks for further details.
 
How can I clean acrylic ?
We suggest simply use warm soapy water and a soft cotton cloth.   Any chemical cleaner should be avoided as it is likely to damage the acrylic.  If you would like to use a cleaning product we suggest our specialist acrylic cleaner and polish Vuplex.
 
Is acrylic better than glass ?
Acrylic is 17 x stronger than glass and about half the weight of glass.

This means it is physically easier to lift, hang, carry or transport around and safer at the same time too.  Should acrylic be dropped, it is much less likely to break too.  If it does break, it will not shatter in the same way as glass.  It would not break into tiny sharp shards but into a couple of large, easy to pick up pieces.  This makes it ideal for situations where safety is paramount.

Acrylic is also clearer than glass and actually transmits more light than glass.  

 

Is acrylic heat resistant ?

Acrylic is heat resistant up to 70 degrees.

 

Is acrylic suitable for outdoor use ?

Yes, acrylic can be used outside.

Is clear acrylic suitable for secondary glazing ?
Yes, acrylic is a good choice for secondary glazing. 

The benefits of secondary glazing include increased thermal and sound insulation as well as extra security. Acrylic’s light weight and flexibility make it very easy to install yourself at home and the extremely high light translucence means there will be no noticable reduction in light entering the room.

For extra security consider using polycarbonate sheeting which is roughly 30 times stronger than acrylic and is also ideal for secondary glazing.
 
What is the difference between Perspex and acrylic ?
What is known as Perspex is really a brand of acrylic.

Acrylic is common thermoplastic.  It's chemical name is polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA).  PMMA was invented in 1933.  Acrylic became available for commercial use under various protected trademarks such as Perspex®.  Other trademarks include are Plexiglas®,  Acrylite®,  Altuglas® and Lucite Plazcryl®,.
