A one-component sealant, neutral cure silicone can be used for most building, construction and glazing applications. It’s almost completely odourless and cures with atmospheric moisture to form a durable rubber seal that can withstand movement and is long-lasting. Neutral cure silicone sealants have better adhesive properties for plastics and polycarbonate, so they’re a popular choice when working with acrylic sheeting.
Silicone sealants can be used for a wide variety of applications thanks to their strong UV resistance, temperature resistance, flexibility and durability. Some silicone sealants can have a strong odour as a result of the acetic acid in them, but neutral cure silicone releases alcohol instead of acid so it’s virtually odourless.
While neutral cure silicone can cure at a slower speed than some other silicones, depending on the temperature, humidity and thickness, they’re a great choice for materials where an alkoxy or acetoxy substance might react to the material, causing discolouration or erosion. If you’re working on outdoor applications, such as greenhouses or roofing, neutral cure silicone is a better choice as it offers better adhesion and weatherproofing properties compared to acetoxy silicones.

Frequently Asked Questions
What tolerance do you cut to?
We cut to a tolerance of +/-1mm.
What is your delivery timescale?
3-7 working days.
Is mirrored acrylic like normal mirror?
Mirrored acrylic is a flexible material, and needs to be attached to a perfectly flat surface. We recommend attaching it to MDF or something similar, making sure the adhesive is spread in a thin even layer across the acrylic. we also recommend using the 5mm thick acrylic as it is more rigid.
Can you cut any shape?
Yes, in acrylic. We will shortly be able to also cut any shape in polycarbonate as well.
What's your standard radius corner?
20mm, but we can cut to your requirements.
How many holes do I need in my acrylic?
1 per corner should be sufficient for smaller pieces. You might want to consider an extra hole in the middle if your sheet is larger.
Can I cut acrylic?
Yes, you can. Just take it slow and easy.
Can I put acrylic behind a hob?
Not if it is gas or electric. You need a gap of 5cm between an induction hob and the acrylic.
