Coloured acrylic sheets
Our range of coloured acrylic sheets are suitable for many different applications, they are primarily used for decoration and finishing touches. The sheets are UV resistant, making them an ideal choice for outdoor applications. The colourful sheets are available in a thickness of 3 millimetres and have a maximum sheet size of 305 by 203 centimetres. For coloured acrylic this is the largest sheet size available in our online shop, but we can cut it to a smaller size free of charge. The vibrant coloured acrylic sheets are mostly implemented for decorative purposes. The neutral colours, on the other hand, are available in thicker sizes and, therefore, more suited for heavy duty applications like balcony glazing and boat windows. Like all other cast acrylic sheets, the coloured sheets are easy to work with. Read more about the practical coloured sheets and the characteristics at the bottom of this page.
Characteristics of coloured acrylic sheets
Plasticsheetsshop supplies several kinds of coloured sheeting: tinted, opal, coloured, matt and mirrored. The tinted sheets are fully transparent and evenly coloured. They are often used for practical interior design, like shower panels and kitchen splashbacks. You can add some backlighting and create a very unique look. The white opal sheets can also be used for the same purposes and offer light transmission of up to 28%. Opal and tinted acrylic sheets also provide solar protection, which is why they are a popular choice for boat and caravan windows. The solid coloured acrylic sheets are opaque, and the frosted sheets are semi-translucent. The sheets are often used as windbreakers, privacy and balcony glazing. Mirrored acrylic sheets are perfect replacements for regular glass mirrors. Mirrored acrylic sheets are extruded and more prone to splinter or break, so be careful if you’re planning to work on this material.
Cast coloured acrylic sheets are a choice material for DIY projects. The sheets are 30 times more impact resistant than traditional glass but only half the weight of a glass pane of the same thickness. Acrylic is easy to work with using standard DIY tools and you can order any acrylic sheet cut to size free of charge. Don’t hesitate to contact our customer service for any further questions.
