3mm Polycarbonate Sheet
3mm Polycarbonate Sheet – A brilliant alternative to glass
Polycarbonate sheets are really tough and very strong. As a material it's often used as a glass alternative, being just as durable but safer and lighter. In fact it weighs in at five times less than glass. It's also thermoplastic, which means you can heat and re-form it as often as you like and it doesn't degenerate or lose its properties. Did you know it isn't quite the same as acrylic plastic sheeting? If not, and you're not certain which to use, give us a call or establish for yourself the differences between acrylic and polycarbonate here.
Polycarbonate is wonderfully easy to work with, form when heated, cut and machine. It lets in loads of light so makes an excellent glass replacement, especially in places where glass would be too dangerous. You can paint it any colour you like and glue bits of it firmly with everyday solvent-based glue. Stick two or more layers together and the intrinsic strength has to be seen to be believed. It looks good whatever the weather, and has a multitude of different uses and functions.

We will email you confirmation of your order, including your order details, your order number and the price that you have paid.
When your delivery is ready for dispatch, we will email you. This email will include the courier’s tracking number where possible. If you have ordered a smaller piece of acrylic, you will receive a notification from the courier detailing roughly when your order will be delivered on a specific day. If you have ordered a larger piece of acrylic, you may not receive any notifications from the courier, and unfortunately our courier also can’t specify a delivery time. If you are out, the courier will leave a card to allow you to arrange a new delivery time to suit you.
Due to factors beyond our control, we can’t guarantee that orders will be delivered when specified during our communications with you.
Your order should arrive packaged and in perfect condition, just as it left us. It will come with a layer of protective film over each surface (mirrored acrylic only has protective film on one side).
