A am using it as a licence plate for my boat. Sticking self adhesive numbers on it

Good quality product and excellent service

Used as a backing for a custom collectors cabinet. It was slotted into 20x20 v-slot extrusions rails and worked great. There is a very slight texture to the surface, which is noticeable under lighting. So it’s not a 100% smooth surface. But other than that it was the most cost effective material what I needed.

Best quality materials and prompt service.faultless overall is why these guys are my one and only supplier and cheapest around

Creating number boards required for racing. These are stiff enough to be held in place but flexible enough to not snap due to being brittle.

Used black foamex squares as mounting plates for marine vhf radios. They were accurately cut to size and delivered quickly.

Used for model railway board as its rigid and light. Also pins can be pushed in using a flat screwdriver or coin thus avoiding hammering. Track is then secure. Good quality product for this purpose.

Craft work

Arrived well packaged and undamaged. Sizes were spot on and all went together well.

Absolutely delighted with purchase and prompt delivery. Using this product for my 5 panels diamond paintings. Will use this company again and highly recommend them

Absolutely delighted with purchase and prompt delivery. Using this product for my 5 panels diamond paintings. Will use this company again and highly recommend them

exactly what was ordered and on time

Used it as a base for watercolour paper.

Ordered this black PVC board as a cooker hob cover to give additional worktop space when not in use, perfect for purpose and at a great price would recommend.

Very quick, precise size, excellent service

Used for model making. Accurately cut - great lightweight material.

Perfect material for race door cards. Easy to cut with a scalpel or jigsaw. Arrived well packaged, many thanks.

Good quality and price, excellent customer service

Good quality foam board. Exact measurements so fitted perfectly. Swift delivery for a custom made product.

Initially ordered small samples to see the insulation quality of the material to ascertain if suitable for use on the inside of bee hive roofs. Being rigid and having good insulation qualities they will be ideal for the job, will be ordering larger sheets to install in all the hives.

Great quality board. Was used to do repair work on my soffit prior to selling house.

I ordered this to be used as a mounting base for sound dampening panels as part of a home office upgrade. The board came extremely well packaged and was precision cut which made attaching the foam acoustic panels simple. I secured the board to the wall using 6 large command strips (which is why it was essential that the board was strong but light). All in all, I'm very happy with the product and service and would buy again should I need to.

Used this product for furniture handle sample display boards, amazing quality and service will definitely be purchasing again....

used to line side and back of a wire terranium . very good.

I used this for backing on an exterior parish council notice board. It worked brilliantly and is easy to push pins into. Really pleased 😀

I use this plastic to mount amplifier in my car. It's very easy to machine it. And it can be fasten to but with that you need to be cearfull as is not as dens as other plastics. I'm very happy with the product and will be using it in future projects.

I purchased the 10mm Black Foam board to make some pub signage. The product was spot on but the delivery time was far too long for two small pieces.

Excellent material / service and cost. Will buy from here again.

I used this to cover my pond electrics it work great it was supplied to me at the correct size

Excellent, easy to machine !

Making G scale models for my garden railway. A solid workable product. Easily constructed, only time will tell how it reacts to our weather. An excellent product, will buy more when needed

We use these as door kick plates, better than metal as any scratches can be buffed out, but £6, just replace it.

Used to mount a jigsaw which this was perfect for! Nice and strong but very lightweight. Ordering process was easy and a great price for a custom sized product compared to buying set sized boards. An estimate of when the product will arrive would be nice as it was a bit of a mystery but once it arrived it couldn't be faulted!

I used the black Foamex for an insert for a table seating plan frame. Delivery very quick. Am now investigating looking at 'framing' a themed prop circa 2m x 1m in white of cream. Thickness will need to be larger

Quality product , cut to size as needed

I used the product for an aquarium lid, it was perfect for the job, cut perfectly and good quality. I would thoroughly recommend this product.

These were used to separate a fish into 4 section s for my beta fish after cutting them into the size I needed I drilled 90 hole in each board for flow and heat to surculate it's up and running now would recommend to anyone and if needed will be using simply plastics again thanx

I used it for windowsills in my kitchen

Excellent, density higher than expected, being used as part of a 3D bsckscene on a 2mm Finescale Railway layout

Excellent product

great quality product, strong and light!!

Finishing garden railway raised section. All cut exactly to size, making assembly easy.

I bought this product to use as sole material for my niece's dolls shoes. I have been very happy with the quality of this product,, found it easy to use and cut and has been perfect for the job! Thanks so much!!!

Quality product and service.

Used product to make a lid for a non-standard loft tank. It was easy to cut into a round shape and is not affected by a very moist environment.

Combination of Perspex sheet & black foam board to make picture frame. Both exactly cut to size. Very well packed & willing to deliver to the Highlands! Would certainly recommend, staff very helpful.

Exactly as ordered (to the millimetre) great price and quick delivery times. Have used them a number of times now and always brilliant.

Used to fill in spaces between an animal housing unit, the order was dispatched promptly and arrived well packed and cut to the exact sizes required. overall very pleased with both the service and the product

I purchased an unusual sized piece of black PVC foam board with a corresponding piece of clear plastic to make a frameless picture frame. Simply Plastics cut the materials exactly to my required size & the assembled frame shows the picture off a treat! The service was excellent throughout from the advice on suitable materials. I was never given the impression that my little order was of little importance. I live on the Isle of Skye which often causes problems to suppliers who, once they've worked out where it is, then say that they will either not deliver or charge a fortune for the privilege! No such problem here. My frame did take over a week to arrive after shipping notification but well packed & it arrived so I don't care. It was uphill all the way after all! All in all, I am extremely satisfied & will return to Simply Plastics for future purchases. Thank you!

We needed a work surface as we have just taken our kitchen window out to connect to our conservatory. As the sill had been removed we used the foam board to create a tidy finish. It has provided the perfect soloution to an awkward surface to finish.

Used to back DIY solar panels, having cut to size at no extra cost a bonus.

I used the foam board to create a disc cover for a roadbike rear wheel. This gives a more aerodynamic advantage in slightly windy conditions.It was more of an experiment to find the right balance between a weight and an aerodynamic coefficient.The product was easy to use, and flexible enough for the application. It was a little thick for the wheel, so next time I will order some 2mm thick board to reduce the weight. Thanks for the prompt service. Paul Astin. Momentum Cycles Birmingham.

I use this material for signs as it is light weight very easy to cut and easy for my customer to put their own holes in for prefered hanging, vinyl used in cutters/plotters stick to the material with ease, Simply plastics are fantastic and cut sizes to my required size giving me more time to concentrate on my business, Perfect !
