Detailed description:

Glass "effect" green edge

Glass "effect' green edged acrylic sheet imitates real glass with a very slight green tint to its appearance. This is most visible on the edges and can be used to great effect to fabricate products where the look of real glass is required.

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.

Light weight

Glass "look" 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 it's 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.

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.

I wanted to protect a mosaic table I made from the worst of the elements and this was the perfect solution.

D Howse 03/05/2016 09:21:40

Replaced glass table top with this, looks fine. Went for the glass effect hint of green, probably should have gone for just clear as in certain light it looks quite green. but overall am very happy with the product.
