Detailed description:

Production process

Extruded acrylic sheet and cast acrylic sheet are visually very similar but are two different materials each with advantages and disadvantages and each produced by very different manufacturing processes. Extruded clear acrylic sheet is produced by an extrusion process, acrylic resin pellets are heated to a molten mass which is continuously pushed through a die, the position of which determines the thickness of the sheet produced. Once through the die, the molten mass looses temperature and can be trimmed and cut to the required sheet sizes. The continuos nature of the extruded acrylic production process produces larger batches than that of cast acrylic production making it a more economical material.

Excellent thickness tolerance

Extruded acrylic has an excelent thickness tolerance meaning there is little variation in thicknesses within the same sheet of material, thiis is also true of the thickness tolerance between mutliple sheets of material. The thickness tolerance of extruded acrylic sheet is +/- 5% while the thickness tolerance of cast acrylic sheet can be as high as +/- 15%.

High gloss surface

Extruded sheet has a high gloss finish on both sides.

Weather resistant

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


Extruded acrylic sheet is very easy to work with.

Vacuum forming

Extruded acrylic is suitable for vacuum forming making it a popular choice when complex shapes are required.

It was a piece of plastic, very nice. excellent service

Exactly what I needed for a small repair job. Cut to size and ready to go. The 2mm thickness was quite hard to find - this was ideal.

Used for a DIY project. Great quality. No problems. Would buy again

we have a kitchen which is bright lime Green and Black and white it looks great well the Black sheet of plastic was put on the wall where we make the tea coffee and it always got splashed on the wall so I was fed up with the stained wall we have now put the sheet of plastic on the wall where the tea or coffee is made and now there is no splashes on the wall it gets a thumbs up from me great product and cut to perfection this company gave us a five star service and I have passed on the company name to members or our family

Used this to cover an uneven gap in the kitchen. Looks neat and does the job well.

I need specific thickness and sizes. Plastic sheets are exactly the size I needed! First class experience and quick delivery. Would recommend and will be using again.

Needed a coupe of pieces of acrylic to hide some wiring. Website is very user friendly whole process was very easy to complete. Products arrived as expected. no hesitation in giving 5 stars

Order 2 pcs of black acrylic sheets to act as a cover for the back of the TV stand so that wires aren't visible. Sheets were cut to the exact size and fit perfectly. TV stand now looks as if it came with the sheets fitted

Precisely what I needed for a home project, cut to size and good quality Highly recommend

Needed some Perspex to disguise some damage to a kitchen unit. Delighted with the product and the service. Would definitely use again and happy to recommend

Great product great service

I used this acrylic sheet to make picture frames. The sheets were cut accurately to size and arrived undamaged. I would recommend this supplier and their product.

Really well parcelled arrived as specified.

I used this product to add thermal insulation to the inside of a metal porch door. I used plastic conduit to create an air gap, and magnetic strip to attach the acrylic. The cut-out for the letter-box was done using a sharp saw, cutting slowly.

Would just like to say it was so easy to order and it arrived well package and in a very quick time. Would use again.

Hi bought the white extruded acrylic sheets x2 for my white bedside cabinets and works well, its a nice white gloss and protects the surface, would recommend it to my friends, came in a good packaging really pleased well done

Purchased a strip of white 2mm acrylic to fit around my shower enclosure. This needed to fit around a curve of 90 degrres and it did so nicely. Also had to trim to length and drill several holes. Very pleased with the end result.

Excellent service

Excellent product, accurate and high quality thank you

Used the product to attach to the back of a gloss white TV unit to hide wires, drilled cable holes through it and it works as expected, arrived well packaged, delivery was a little slow but this can be forgiven as it is a large fragile item

Just as expected at a rasonable price.

The top hatch on our boat was lined with plywood and has rotted on two occasions due to condensation. So I thought this this time I would replace the ply with plastic. Once I found the best way to cut the sheet to size and it was fixed in place it made the hatch look so much better and easy to wipe down with the white Acrylic. I

Brought this as a backsplash for my new kitchen rather than tiles, looks great both during the day and at night with lights reflecting off it, would definitely recommend to anyone wanting an alternative to tiles, easy to fix and cut if you need like us to cut out sockets

We had this product cut to size to use as a splashback. Easy to use online service and delivery as expected. So far it has been easy to wipe clean.

Used the sheet as a panel on the end of a run of utility room units. Excellent quality and precise fabrication.

I used this white extruded acrylic sheet to make a non standard size bath panel. I fixed it to a plywood panel using 'no more nails' and because it was a solid base behind the acrylic there wasn't a problem with light showing through the acrylic. I achieved a very nice bespoke bath panel. Service was excellent with fast delivery.

I used this on a backing to a frame that I had made. I needed a hole to fit a wire through the back. I was really impresses with the quality and finish of each piece. Highly recommend
