10mm Polycarbonate Sheet – The ultimate in glass-like strength
Polycarbonate is incredibly tough and strong. It weighs as much as five times less than glass and is thermoplastic. Being stiff it makes a great glass alternative and it comes with excellent impact resistance. It's different from acrylic sheeting, so unless you're completely sure which you need, give us a call or check out the differences between the two here.
Polycarbonate sheeting is wonderful stuff. It is surprisingly easy to machine and has good dimensional stability. You can form it with heat and it takes a coat of paint well. It's simple to glue together with a decent solvent glue, and layering it up delivers even more strength and rigidity. It resists the weather beautifully and features high chemical resistance. It is difficult to scratch or damage, which is the reason it's used so frequently for things like bus stops, carport roofs and police stations.

What tolerance do you cut to?
We cut to a tolerance of +/-3mm.
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.
Do you fit the acrylic?
No, we don't. We do provide some templates which should help you to take your measurements. The acrylic is easy to install by any competent DIYer.
What's the difference between acrylic and Perspex?
Perspex is a brand name. It is the same as acrylic.
