What is Acrylic? Sheet Plastics is one of the UK’s leading acrylic manufacturers, but what is acrylic? Our acrylic sheets might initially be mistaken for glass, but when you compare their properties, acrylic and glass have major differences. Sheet Plastics’ Perspex® alternative is stronger than glass, and can withstand a greater impact. In fact, it’s one of the hardest thermoplastic available to buy. What’s more, an acrylic sheet is a much lighter material than glass: it can weigh up to 50% less than the equivalent sized piece of glass. Another great benefit to our coloured acrylic is its price: it is a far better value than glass sheets.
