6mm Acrylic Sheets

£1.70 Inc. VAT

6mm Clear acrylic sheets, which are the same as and commonly referred to as Perspex sheets and/or Plexiglass sheets, are a glass alternative that is far stronger, lighter, and cheaper. If you plan to use a large sheet of acrylic and a perfectly flat finish is desired we recommend you use a thickness of 5mm or greater, making 6mm the perfect thickness for ensuring you're using a rigid and strong sheet without compromising on weight or cost.

6mm Acrylic Sheets – Thick, strong, attractive

The thicker the acrylic, the tougher it is. Our high gloss acrylic is a brilliant material, practical and good looking. And when it's this thick it makes an excellent alternative to glass: versatile, lighter and safer. If your next construction, design, business, domestic or creative project demands high gloss, rugged good looks and a material that's a dream to cut and work with, our 6mm acrylic sheet is an exceptional solution.

Product Description

Our strong 6mm extruded acrylic sheets make all sorts of exciting, practical projects possible, everything from home décor to features in offices, business premises, and public areas. If you want to make a high-quality impact with colour or use it as a practical alternative to glass, this hi-gloss 6mm plastic sheeting is exactly what you need.

Key Features

– Low cost, lightweight, stylish, contemporary
– Safer than glass, absorbs UV rays and resists scratching
– A stunning glossy look with colour applied on one side for a rich, deep shade
– Fire Rating of E to Test Standard DIN ED 13501
– A protective film on both sides to prevent damage – simply peel it off when you're ready
– The colour and acrylic material are bonded together at the extrusion stage, so are bonded permanently.

Important note: It is unwise to fix an acrylic sheet too near to a heat source, whether it's a gas or electric cooker, hob, open fire, radiator, wood burner, Rayburn or Aga. If you are likely to see it rise above 160°C in the area, use glass instead.

Which materials can you use near heat?

– Electric, Ceramic & Induction Hobs - Acrylic wall panels work fine behind induction and ceramic hobs provided it's fitted at least 5cm from the appliance.
– Gas Hobs - Direct heat source hobs demand a splashback made from our Low Iron toughened glass.

Applications

You can use our high gloss acrylic in a wide variety of ways, including:

– Shiny, colourful splashbacks for bathrooms and kitchens
– As presentation boards and whiteboards
– To make unusual, practical shelves
– To re-clad walls and kitchen cabinets
– For sign-making and secondary glazing
– Many uses in yachts and boating
– For art, craft and design projects
– For guarding, point-of-sale and display units
