The neutral shade of our ivory acrylic sheets, an alternative to the branded Perspex sheets, makes it an adaptable and flexible product that will work well with so many colour schemes and décor styles. Whether you’re using it as a protective wall covering for your kitchen or bathroom, for retail displays at events, stores or for exhibitions, or you want to create unique signage from it, these ivory sheets are practical, stylish and versatile. Please note, this colour is slightly opaque, and allows 38% of light through (based on a 3mm thick sheet).
To ensure that your Premium Acrylic colour choice matches your requirements we suggest you purchase a sample in your preferred colour(s) before placing your main order. Once dispatched, colours and sizes cannot be changed.
What properties make ivory acrylic a useful material?
Acrylic sheets are over ten times as durable as glass but weight half as much, so they’re easier to work with and to install – particularly when using in larger sheets. There are many beneficial properties to acrylic, which is why it has become such a popular material over recent years for everything from furniture to signage. The optical clarity of acrylic sheeting is great, and it allows for brilliant light transmission, so it will open up darker or smaller spaces and give the illusion of more room.
Acrylic has impressive impact resistance and can withstand extended exposure to the elements without showing signs of damage or wear. In exterior applications or where there are lots of people and there’s a high risk of it being knocked or hit, this makes for a safer alternative to some other materials that may break more easily. It’s also easy to clean and doesn’t require regular polishing or maintenance like some other materials do. Acrylic has superb chemical resistance and is food safe, so it’s perfectly suited to applications in the home and for commercial food preparation areas. Acrylic is a great investment that provides excellent value for money and can be easily fabricated to your specifications.

Clear acrylic or polycarbonate would be best for secondary glazing. Windows larger than 800mm will benefit from being glazed with a thicker sheet to provide rigidity.
Is acrylic recyclable?
Acrylic is recyclable, however, as it’s not bio-degradable the process is not as easy as putting it in your recycle bin or taking it to a bottle bank. But you can re-use acrylic (e.g. Perspex), by cutting larger sheets into small pieces and forming them into other products.
