Detailed description:

Hard wearing

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


Black and white 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 easy to clean.

Weather resistant

With excellent resistance to the elements, coloured cast acrylic performs very 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.


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

Maximum sheet size3050mm x 2030mm
Available thicknesses3mm, 5mm, 6mm, 8mm, 10mm
Light transmission - White gloss9% - Very slightly translucent e.g. An object placed behind the material is unlikely to cause a shadow. If back lighting the material an opal material with a higher light transmission would be more suitable.
Light transmission - Black gloss0% - Black gloss has an opaque finish with no light transmission e.g. An object placed behind the material would not be visible and would not cause a shadow.

What is perspex?

Although commonly referred to as perspex, Perspex® is in fact a manufacturers brand name. Acrylic and Perspex® are one and the same thing. Acrylic or Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA) is produced as sheets, rods and tubes.

For enquiries regarding any project from prototypes to large production runs, please get in touch to discuss your requirements.

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.

Bought a square black high gloss to put on top of a table fire pit so can be used as a normal table, the product was to a very high standard & well wrapped, would def use this company again or would recommend to anyone thanks again 👍🏻

Richard McGarey 19/06/2017 19:22:15

This is the third purchase of your products I have made, and I have not been disappointed. High quality product and reasonable delivery. Many Thanks.

Richard McGarey 19/06/2017 19:19:50

I purchased this product to make and effects pedal board for an acoustic guitar. I had made the base out of wood, and needed a clean surface for the top of the board which would look good, and would be suitable to affix the various effects pedals. This worked perfectly. It is a good quality product and the delivery time was reasonable considering it is a bespoke item. Many thanks, and I would certainly purchase your products in the future, and recommend your products to others.

Bollo 16/06/2017 20:04:38

High quality product, used for splashback around sink 3mm thick is enough for this job. High recommend.

Riddington 10/06/2017 11:06:24

Exactly as I ordered. Used to cover electrical terminal box.

Judy Taylor 08/06/2017 22:48:47

KIS Thomson 03/05/2017 10:25:23

To replace a MDF panel on the exterior which was used to block off a window. hence black to look like a glazed window, Well packed and swiftly delivered. easy to use web site.

AL 01/05/2017 07:06:21

I wanted to waterproof a small area around my sink. Couldn't be bothered with tiles, so decided to go with plastic sheets. I needed three different shapes/sizes and thicknesses. I emailed Simply Plastics with lots of questions in advance (e.g. can I drill extra holes in the middle of the sheet when I have worked out where they need to go?, etc.) and got very prompt and detailed responses. My only quibble would be that once I had placed my order I had no idea when it was going to arrive. It eventually arrived, well wrapped and in perfect condition. Would recommend and would use the company again.

Marie 19/04/2017 16:22:22

I used my sheet in the garden to hide an ugly piece of wall. The wall was curved and by using the thinnest material, I was able to bend the product and fix it to the wall with no problems. The staff I spoke to on the phone were very helpful.

Julia M Porter 15/04/2017 09:04:18

Excellent, ordered as an trial, perfect, will be ordering more to complete the project, many thanks

Kieron Kelly 10/04/2017 22:23:25

TIMOTHY JAMES 07/04/2017 09:37:21

Used this piece of black acrylic as an isolation shelf for small hifi electronics. Came well packed and is a very high gloss. Looks expensive. Very happy with the product.

Geoffrey Hyde Fynn 04/04/2017 20:41:07

One piece that I ordered (3mm black) was used for an additional instrument panel in a new motorhome - to match the existing black perspex touch sensitive panels just to one side. Very smart it now looks too... The second piece (6mm black) was to make a sink cover to expand the work area in the motorhome's galley area. Again in black perpex. The manufacturer's optional extra was priced up at over £150!!!! With Simply Plastics we don't need to deal with those prices!! Delivery was on time and the dimensions - spot on. Thanks.

Phil 24/03/2017 06:33:50

Used for project in motorhome washroom.Accurately cut to my dimensions and edges finished to high standard.Quality product,looks good and really does the job it was intended for plus quick turnaround of order. Highly recommended.

SGerrard 26/01/2017 19:07:17

I bought a piece of black acrylic as an extension to an inadequate bathroom, basin splashback. It was cost effective, attractive and has done the job. If I have projects in the future I would use this product again. Maybe something a bit brighter next time. If I'm brave enough! The delivery was lightning. from order to delivery in 24 hours! I can highly recommend the product and the service.

Lindsey 25/01/2017 22:12:07

Daisy 25/01/2017 19:13:32

I used this product to create half inch wedges on the interior of a portfolio box (used in the presentation of photographic images). The acrylic arrived quicker than I had expected and looked great with polished edges. Very pleased with the purchase, great value for money.

Ruffyhead 18/01/2017 19:20:03

Replaced on old Double Oven with a Neff Built Under oven which left a gap underneath. Made a drawer to fit the space. Faced it with Black Perspex to match the oven colour. Looks better than good ... Like it grew there.

I used this black plastic to extend a television stand top. Would recommend ,came just as ordered spot on.

Krystyna Moseley 05/01/2017 11:51:25

We used the high gloss acrylic sheets (5 of them) as splash-backs behind washbasins. They came ready drilled with nicely finished, polished edges and were easy to fix in place with mirror screws. Much cheaper and quicker than tiling and no grout to become discoloured.

trevor 03/01/2017 17:35:43

not used yet but is due to go into a dashboard for the clocks and gauges all looks fine very helpful comms

Dave Cleverley 22/12/2016 22:17:06

Adam munro 15/12/2016 07:11:03

Graeme McFarlane 14/12/2016 19:32:59

Mr.McPherson. 30/11/2016 07:16:17

I bought the white acrylic, to make a splash back panel for a small wash hand basin, which I had recently fitted into my cloakroom. The acrylic was easy to work with, I had to cut it to fit around the basin. A good product and looks well.

Andy's Arcade 24/11/2016 19:09:24

Martin pearce 05/07/2016 19:25:45

Used as an inlay to a small table next to a sofa. It was to match a coffee table that had 2 black glass inlays. Lasered out a large hole in table (20mm thick), fitted in a tight fit of wood (15mm thick), dropped in your black (5mm thick) acrylic dead fit. Cannot tell the difference. Brilliant job !

John 16/06/2016 19:53:07

This was used to put on the door where the dog would scratch to be let out, looks perfect and certainly does the job. I have purchased a few random pieces from Simply plastics, for things as diverse as shelf covers and lego stands, all are made exactly to specification and delivery is both fast and the products are very well packaged for shipping,

Mr lackenby 09/06/2016 19:38:11

Used this product for a boat door , the item came in a very timely manor and was well packaged Thanks

Simon 16/05/2016 15:32:23

I required a smallish sheet of 8mm thick black acrylic to be fabricated (by another company) into a small monitor riser. Not many places stocking 8mm in black, and the ones that did were wanting more money, plus they were charging ridiculous delivery fees. Simply Plastics dispatched the acrylic sheet within just a couple of days, and it arrived in perfect condition. It had been cut millimetre perfect and all the edges were beautifully smooth (I'd paid extra for diamond polishing). Fantastic service!!!

ben amico 11/05/2016 15:07:23

I used your product to make a new cabinet doors and the result was better than I expected I would recommend your product to everyone.

Bernie Cockton 01/05/2016 07:40:19

The product was used for enclosing a steel bath and shelf unit and works well, but the cutting to the exact sizes was difficult as the product tends to crack and fracture during cutting.

Dean winder 30/04/2016 08:01:05

Bought 5mm gloss black acrylic for a fish tank cabinet, the product was delivered very fast and was packed extremely well, will defiantly use again.

John collier 31/03/2016 19:44:08

Paul Chapman 31/03/2016 09:40:37

Thank you all for the great prompt service. I called and ordered various cut panels which was required urgently and couldn't fault the service and prices. Thanks again for all your help, will recommend to anyone.

Linda Banks 04/03/2016 20:47:47

Brilliant product and looks amazing in situ. I was worried about it getting here on one piece as it was nearly 3 metres long but I needn't have worried because it was packaged really well. Would definitely recommended this product.

ozden 01/03/2016 20:23:07

cheaper than all the other websites and great quality

DOMINIC CRAGOE 24/02/2016 19:48:55

Absolutely perfect for use on football pitch dug outs and application of the vinyl lettering on them. Nice and strong. Very pleased

Paul Flanagan 09/02/2016 17:54:06

This small thin piece of plastic was used to fill a gap between a kitchen top and the wall (it's hidden from sight). It was the perfect size and did the job brilliantly.

Alison Forbes 09/02/2016 12:47:41

brilliant, fast service and will definitely buy from here again. many thanks.

Tracey Foster 09/02/2016 07:48:41

We used acrylic sheet as a wetwall for our shower. It was perfect. Great glossy, quality surface, easy to file off the edges, and not too heavy to handle. We went for the 6mm, which we wouldn't do again, as we couldn't get corner trims etc. in 6mm. Best stick to 5mm. Stuck it to the wall with Evo-Stik's, 'Sticks Like Sh*t'.

Phil Galer 08/02/2016 22:32:23

Used as backing for shelfs between gloss white kitchen cabinets. Great product.

Darryl 08/02/2016 20:49:58

I used this product as a bath panel to replace a gloss white painted MDF panel, the MDF panel got water in and eventually started to go bad. This sheet was cut perfectly to size as I specified and the polished edges were perfect. Overall this was a great purchase and I would highly recommend simply plastics.
