Do I need polished edges? Our cutting machines give an impressive smooth edge to your acrylic but if you need clear edges for aesthetic purposes or super smooth edges for safety reasons then yes, you'll need polished edges. If your edges don't need to be clear and perfectly smooth or you need to glue your edges then there's no need for a polished edge.

5mm Polycarbonate Sheet – Versatile, thermoplastic, rigid


Polycarbonate plastic is naturally transparent but doesn't have a crystalline structure. The material is thermoplastic, which means you can form and re-form it multiple times using heat. And it deals with the internal transmission of light in almost the same way as glass, so makes a great alternative to glass. It comes with superb impact resistance. And it's different from acrylic sheeting. Do you know the differences? If you're not 100% sure which you need, give us a call or find out the differences between acrylic and polycarbonate for yourself.

Product description


Polycarbonate sheet can be formed easily without cracking or breaking, and you don't need a lot of heat to do so. It's great for prototyping applications where sheet metal won't do the trick, for example when you need transparency or a non-conductive surface with strong electrical insulation. It is a lighter alternative to glass and filters out UV rays. Plus it's tough, strong and comes in a variety of thicknesses. Anna, I removed the spectacles bit for you, but left the UV ray bit in since plenty of other sites mention it as a feature of the material.

Key Features

– An incredibly strong plastic, up to 5 times lighter than glass
– Lets 90% of the available light through so is a good alternative for windows
– Incredibly tough and rigid, almost 300 times stronger than glass
– Thermoforms beautifully multiple times with no degradation
– Performs better than acrylic sheeting in high impact situations
– Brake-forms to a tenth of an inch thick
– Bullet resistant at its thickest
– Easy to drill, cut, form, bend, work with and fit
– Keeps UV rays out
– Resists abrasion well
– Meets British and EU fire standards
– Comes in twin and multiwall versions, extremely strong and light

Want privacy? Bronze polycarbonate sheet works beautifully in private situations, and pearl polycarbonate sheet offers even more privacy while letting lots of light through.

Applications

– Transparent manifolds, signage, name plates, windows and safety guards
– Safety glasses for industry, schools and colleges
– Prototyping of various sorts, from models to moulds for casting
Greenhouses, cloches, carports, conservatories, porches, skylights and playhouse windows
– Super-light and transparent roofing and trims that are also super-tough
– Security and safety windows in doctors surgeries, and on buses
– Point-of-purchase displays
– As a replacement for glass in buildings

We have no minimum order size, so you can place a small order without incurring an additional charge.

Your delivery address doesn’t need to be the same as your billing address. You can pick different addresses whilst checking out.

You are also more than welcome to come and pick your acrylic up from us. Our address is Unit 30, Mackley Industrial Estate, Henfield Road, Small Dole, BN5 9XR.

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). If your order appears to have been damaged in transit, please refer to our Orders Damaged in Transit information.

We reserve the right to charge extra delivery costs if the dimensions/format of your order require us to use a specialist delivery company. 

We can arrange for delivery on Saturdays/before midday, please contact us for more details. There will be a supplement for these services.


There is a supplement on deliveries to the Scottish Highlands, Grampians, Northern Ireland, Eire, Isle of Wight, Isle of Man and the Channel Islands. This supplement will be calculated when you add your delivery details to your order.

If you have any questions please contact us by calling 01903 389 024 or email info@cutmyplastic.co.uk.

FAQs


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.
