6mm Polycarbonate Sheet – Versatile, transparent, lightweight
Polycarbonate is a remarkably strong see-through plastic material that displays great rigidity, which makes it a popular alternative to glass. It lasts and lasts, is difficult to damage and looks stunning in a wide variety of applications. And it's completely different from acrylic sheeting. Do you know which one will suit your project best? If not get in touch for sensible advice or discover the differences between acrylic and polycarbonate here.
Polycarbonate sheets are easy to machine, cut neatly and are extremely stable. You can thermoform it into an extraordinary variety of shapes, for all sorts of functions, and it doesn't lose its integrity and strength. You can paint over it and get a beautiful finish, the surface is so smooth. You can fix pieces of it together using a decent solvent glue. And it features a very hard protective coating for extra-good weather resistance.

Frequently Asked Questions
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.
