Detailed description:

Optical clarity

Clear cast acrylic has an exceptionally high level of light transmission allowing 92% of all visible light through the material creating an unparalleled crystal clear finish. Not even glass can achieve this level of optical clarity. Because of this clear cast acrylic is an excellent alternative to glass for glazing purposes.

Hard wearing

Cast acrylic is one of the hardest thermoplastic sheet materials available and its attractive aesthetics remain for longer than other plastic sheet materials.

Lightweight

While offering higher levels of clarity than glass, clear cast acrylic weighs half as much as an equivalent glass panel making fabrication, installation and transportation a far more attractive proposition.

High gloss finish and easy to clean

Its high gloss finish is not only very attractive but also more practically very easy to clean.

Weather resistant

With excellent resistance to the elements, cast acrylic performs well outside. No significant changes in appearance are expected over 10 years.

Manufacturing process 

Cast acrylic is manufactured by pouring monomer between two sheets of high quality glass and polymerised in batches in a carefully controlled manufacturing process.

Cutting Tolerance

Recyclable

Cast acrylic can be recycled all the way back to its original raw material, the monomer.

What are polished edges?

When we cut an acrylic sheet to size, the saw blade produces a matte finish on the edges of the panel. We use a technique called diamond polsihing to polish the edges to a bright, smooth and glossy finish. 

Our diamond edge-polishing machine polishes the edge of acrylic by running a rotating, diamond tipped wheel along the edge of the material.

How do I clean acrylic?

  1. Blow or lightly brush away any dust and loose dirt from the surface of the acrylic
  2. Using a mild solution of lukewarm water and washing up liquid clean the surface of more resistant dirt and grime.
  3. Rinse with clean water.
  4. Blot dry with a microfibre cloth to prevent water spotting.

Excellent quality. I used it to add support to a garden fountain that was sagging due to poor design. Rather than throw the rather expensive feature away, I secured the acrylic circle to the base support of the fountain and drilled loads of holes in it to allow the water through. The weight of the fountain is now fully supported and doesn't sag and distort the water flow.

Lynette Galbraith 30/05/2017 21:35:30

I ordered 3 different size of discs in pairs which I needed for craft work they were perfect cut to the exact sizes I requested with smoothed edges as requested and where of perfect quality and the delivery was quite fast I would defiantly use this company again and also recommend them to other people

Ian Tasney 30/05/2017 20:24:37

The two disc were used to replace the clear plastic widows on my two sets of Salter Bathroom scales. One plastic was cracked, the other's transparency had deteriorated with age. The transformation was fantastic with sparkling clarity. Thank you so much they are better than new !!

Ashley Watmough 09/05/2017 19:44:13

Bought this to make a table top for a recently acquired F1 wheel. It is flawlessly clear and was perfectly cut to the correct diameter with a smooth polished edge. Would definitely recommend.

Rachel Morley 12/04/2017 11:38:30

I needed these to display my work at a trade fair recently. The product is very good quality and worked well placed on top of my acrylic cylinders to support my hand made felt bowls. The effect made my bowls appear to be floating on my display unit. My only negative comment would be that they took longer to arrive than I was comfortable with, arriving only a couple of days before my show! I did order them in good time I felt. However, the product itself was good and exactly what I wanted. Thank you.

tania brunton 11/04/2017 19:41:30

Super fast service and really happy with the product :) Don't laugh but It's for my cakes :) Thank you very much

richard.c.w@hotmail.co.uk 15/02/2017 23:06:25

Thank you, I will order again, great service

Bev Simpson 19/01/2017 07:44:51

This was used as a table top to protect the surface but still to be able to see the grain. After ordering the product was available promptly and I collected from Simply plastics - no problems The size was accurate and fits perfectly. Slightly concerned that the surface will scratch easily - I guess this is the dilemma over glass or plastic.

June 03/01/2017 22:27:10

I bought these for ganaching my cakes and they were spot on. Excellent quality really pleased. Highly recommend.

Peter Hughes 29/08/2016 21:41:21

Glass top on a small patio table fell off and smashed into hundreds of pieces. Didn't want to risk glass again and found Simply plastics on the net. The clear cast acrylic disc arrived within a couple of days of ordering and fitted the table perfectly. Amazed at how good a product this is.

Bought a clear acrylic table top to replace a distorted wooden top for an outdoor patio table. Have bought replacement greenhouse acrylic from this company before which was cut exactly to the size I needed and they didn't disappoint this time either. New table top fitted perfectly just ready for use whenever we get some sunshine!

Jill 24/06/2016 07:46:04

John Watson 05/04/2016 19:34:14

Well made and top quality product.

Malcolm George 25/03/2016 09:46:37

Product was to replace a glass top on a garden table. Table was blown over in a gale and smashed all over the garden. My son suggested that I should replace with your product. It was half of the price quoted for a replacement glass top.

Sharon Morrison 14/03/2016 23:10:14
