Rubber Stops

Use our CLEAR Round Self Adhesive Rubber Stops on your Furniture Protector for a more secure finish or if you are concerned about possible slippage. Our packs contain 20 Rubber Stops.

The Rubber Stops are approximately 11mm x 2mm in size and made of clear polyurethane coated with a powerful pressure sensitive adhesive to the back.
In practice we have found that using a pad approximately every 300mm to 500mm is extremely effective in stopping the furniture protector from moving about when in use.

Are Acrylic and Perspex the same ?
Perspex is a brand name for acrylic (in the same way that hoover is a brand name for a vaccum cleaner).  There are other brands of acrylic too – such as Plexiglass.
Can I cut or drill acrylic myself?
Acrylic can be drilled with a commercial power drill without hammer action. We recommend using a drill bit designed for acrylic or steel. When drilling it is always advisable to have a piece of scrap wood underneath the acrylic so you have something to drill through into. This will help prevent chipping to the back of the hole.
If you wish to cut the material, please use a saw blade suitable for cutting steel and ensure that the material is well supported whilst you are working with it. Learn more about drilling acrylic here on our blog.
Can you make table protectors in unusual shapes and sizes ?
Yes.  We can make table protectors in all shapes and sizes.  You can upload a drawing showing your design and sizes in our Ordering 'Cut To Shape' Calculator above.

How does acrylic compare to glass?
- Less expensive to produce              
- Takes less energy to make             
- Higher impact resistance
- Better optical clarity
- Easily fabricated or shaped
- Lighter (weighs approx. 50% less than glass)
How flexible is acrylic?
Acrylic is relatively flexible compared to glass - it does bend. Thin acrylic sheets will bend more easily than thicker acrylic sheets.  If you over-flex acrylic it can crack or break.  If you require your acrylic bending we can do this for you, please email us with your requirements and we will be happy to help.

Acrylic is reasonably hard wearing but will scratch if something sharp or abrasive is put on it. 
Surface scratches can be removed from acrylic with a proprietary acrylic scratch remover.

How should I clean acrylic ?
The team here at The Plastic People are often asked about how to care for acrylic.  Acrylic should not be cleaned with chemical cleaners as this will very likely lead to damage.  Cleaning acrylic should be with warm soapy water and a soft cotton cloth.  We are impressed with a cleaning product called Vuplex which polishes acrylic to a high shine in minutes, keeping acrylic looking like brand new.   It also protects new plastic from scratches and grime and restores plastic which has fine scratches and in ground grime. 
How strong are table protectors ?
Table protectors are made from acrylic which is 17x stronger than glass (and half its weight).  So, they are pretty strong !  If the table protector was dropped it would not break into tiny sharp shards like glass.  It is unlikley to break but if it did then the break would be into two or three big pieces which are easier to tidy up.

Acrylic is more flexible than glass so the table protector cannot be used as a table top on its own - it would bend.  The table protector is designed to cover and protect the surfaces of your furniture.
How strong is acrylic?
In impact resistance tests, acrylic has been found to be between 10 - 20 times stronger than glass.
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.

What are table protectors made from ?
We make table protectors from our Clear As Glass acrylic.  It looks just like glass and has the added benefit of a high shine when its edges are polished. (If you want this look be sure to tick 'yes' for Polished Edges on our Ordering Calculator above.)
What are the advantages of acrylic over glass?
- Acrylic is very clear - it lets through 92% of the visible light as opposed to 80% to 90% for glass.
- Glass reflects more light than acrylic and the thicker the glass the more discolouration you will notice. No matter what the thickness of clear acrylic, it will always be clear.
- Scratches can be polished out of acrylic but scratched glass cannot be repaired.
- Acrylic does not shatter into sharp shards like glass. Acrylic breaks into large pieces with relatively blunt edges.
- Acrylic scratches easier than glass but surface scratching can be polished out of acrylic while glass would most likely need to be replaced.
- Acrylic is 20% more efficient than glass in reducing temperature flux which means that the outside temperature penetrates the acrylic less easily that it would penetrate glass.
What is the difference between Perspex and acrylic ?
