The Benefits of Coloured Acrylic

Coloured acrylic is around half the weight of glass, but 10 x the strength – making it safer and easier to handle and work with.

Since it’s also cheaper to buy, it represents a more economical option for a variety of different projects.

Like glass, acrylic comes in many colours. The most popular are shown on our site – but we can order other colours if there’s a particular shade that you’ve got your eye on.

Coloured Perspex is a vivid, vibrant and decorative option – whatever colour you choose for whatever project.

Translucent acrylic will transmit some natural light and add a pop of colour and character to whatever setting it is placed in.

Where is Coloured Perspex Best Put to Use?

Coloured Perspex sheets are ideal for use in bathrooms. Whether it’s for shower splashbacks or bath panels – the lightweight yet durable nature of this type of plastic will make it straightforward to fix into place, wherever it’s needed.

It can also be used for kitchen splashbacks – especially if your kitchen area has a certain colour scheme that works well.  Coloured Perspex is easy to wipe down and also heat resistant up to 70 degrees.

See our splashback page for further details on the benefits of acrylic with regards to its use in kitchens and bathrooms.

Coloured Acrylic Sheet Options

First of all, there are a number of different colours to choose from.

There are different red acrylic sheet shades to consider, and also various shades to be aware of if you’re looking to purchase a blue acrylic sheet, for example. Therefore, it might be wise to purchase a sample just to check the colour is right before you consider placing a large order.

We also sell high gloss acrylic, black sparkle acrylic and matt acrylic. You can find further details on each on their respective pages.

You can purchase coloured acrylic in two different sizes (thickness):
  • 3mm coloured acrylic sheet
  • 5mm coloured acrylic sheet

We have both solid and translucent coloured acrylic sheets. The latter can transmit a minimal amount of light, whereas light is unable to travel through solid coloured acrylic.

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®,.
