An overview of our plastic sheets:

Clear plastic sheets which look like glass tend to be either polycarbonate sheets, PETG sheets or acrylic sheets (sometimes called plexiglass sheet or acrylic perspex sheet).   Polycarbonate sheets are renowned for their super strength -  they are around 220 x stronger than glass and virtually unbreakable. They also come with a UV filter in them, so provide some protection from possible sun damage.  Acrylic perspex or plexiglass sheets are also stronger than glass (around 10 x stronger) and are a great choice for a high shine, as they polish up beautifully.   To learn more about How To Choose Between Polycarbonate and Acrylic read our 5 minute article here.  PETG sheets sit between acrylic and polycarbonate in terms of their strength.  They are the clear plastic sheets with approval for use with food so they are a good choice for projects where plastic is needed that can safely come into contact with food.  Our clear as glass plastic is available as thin plastic sheets or thick plastic sheets and we can cutthem to your size or shape.

If you are looking for coloured plastic, our most widely chosen coloured plastic sheets tend to be either coloured acrylic sheets or foamboard.  For colour and finish, acrylic offers the widest choice range.  Because acrylic is shatter-proof and fairly easy to cut and shape, and weather resistant (it won't warp or buckle as weather changes) they make an excellent choice for many projects both indoors and outdoors.  Foamboard is amazingly light in weight making foamboard sheets a popular choice for mobile displays. Our foamboard sheets have been successfully tested by the majority of digital flatbed printer manufacturers and can be printed on, painted, glued, bonded or laminated. 

Plastic mirror sheets are also available on our site.  They are often chosen because they are safer than glass mirror.  Plastic mirror sheets tend to be either acrylic mirror which is shatter-proof (so excellent in public areas, outdoors or around children) or polycarbonate mirror which is virtually unbreakable so a great vandal-proof solution.

As well as acrylic perspex sheets,  we supply engineering plastic sheets suitable for a wide range of manufacturing requirements. Acetal sheets, PVC sheets, nylon sheets and aluminium composite sheets are all available.
