Detailed description:

Optical clarity*

Tinted 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.

Light weight

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.

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.

The plastic was used for shelving it was perfect

Margaret Hickman 14/03/2017 19:52:52

We needed a patio table top as the original glass one shattered. This is absolutely amazing. Looks lovely. no different to the glass and will be safer too. Would thoroughly recommend. So pleased with it. Quickdelivery too. Well done.

Ian 14/03/2017 07:30:31

Splash back around kitchen, came exactly the size I ordered, cut my own socket holes out as I was not sure about positioning, easy to cut out using a sharp drill bit and new fine tooth hacksaw blade, delivered on time , would use again.

colin 06/03/2017 19:13:00

Used the product for a replacement glass top for my patio table which was smashed during a storm. I measured it and submitted the measurements to my order. Delivered about one week later. Bronze tint is fantastic, looks better that the original matt finish toughened glass. The only issue I have is that being perspex, it's more flexible than glass so I should have perhaps ordered 8mm instead of the 6mm. Please bear this in mind if this is what you are using it for., My table top is 112.5m square. Apart from that, product is superb, with polished edges and a 5mm radius corner which I specified.

Simon 04/03/2017 09:09:21

I use this for the screens on my arcade machines and they look great. The plastic is always delivered quickly and any problems are sorted quickly. I will keep coming back because of the quality and price.

Paul Kirkham 02/12/2016 09:36:51

Had a piece of grey tint cut for window for watercooled pc table, the piece seems to be fairly scratch resistant so far and worked out alot cheaper then glass of a equivalent size with the added bonus of being tinted, Very happy with the overal look and feel and the service from simply plastic was perfect

Denise J 16/11/2016 12:53:34

I bought this product to use as door for a small unit and it is working exactly as I was expecting. The quality of the sheet is superb. Good value for money, speed delivery, well packaged. The customer service is absolutely great. I would like to give more than 5 stars to this company that is highly recommended from me. I have not enough words to describe how satisfied I'm to deal with Simply Plastics. Thank you ever so much.

Barry Turner 11/11/2016 10:28:57

My daughter wanted to paint our garden shed white and said she wanted grey-tinted windows - now the shed looks more expensive than the house! But I must admit to feeling proud of it myself, it really does look great, I was satisfied with the price because the quality is excellent and it was so easy to fit with beading and "No Nails". In fact the hardest part of the job was peeling off the protective film.

David 09/11/2016 20:54:30

Quality - excellent Value - excellent Choice - excellent!

Sara Telling 11/10/2016 19:41:38

I purchased the bronze plastic sheet to cover and disguise an old manhole cover in the garden, so I could cover it with a couple of inches of soil for planting. Great service from Simply Plastics and item is perfect for the job.

Robyn 06/10/2016 09:10:49

Ordered a replacement top for a garden table and it is great! The service was helpful, speedy and they answered all my questions patiently - every time I phoned!! It arrived when they said it would and that meant we had a functioning garden table for the party! Thank you

Trevor K 07/03/2016 19:13:21

This was an accurately made very well presented piece that is being used as a lid for my turntable and fits in well with the quality of the HiFi.

Mrs A Williams 13/02/2016 10:05:03

We needed some smoked glass to finish off the doors on a unit that my husband had made. However I did not like the idea of him cutting it, also we have very young grandchildren so we were concerned about safety. We ordered 3 small pieces that were cut to size that fitted perfectly, delivery was excellent. I would recommend SimplyPlastics to my friends. Well done SimplyPlastics 10 out of 10

Wanted a tinted acrylic glass as a entrance door in the stern of my boat, and needed some special cornering and polishing. Simply Plastics did it all, and delivered a very nice piece of sheet, that fitted in all ways. And delivered in time for a very reasonable price. Nice!
