PERSPEX® founded their brand in 1934 and is now one of the world’s leading companies producing acrylic sheets. PERSPEX® is a thermoplastic, a type of plastic that becomes softer when heated. Thanks to this property, PERSPEX® is ideal for bending, allowing you to create beautiful furniture. PERSPEX® is also ideal for replacing standard glass because it is 30 times stronger and twice as light. The base materials are sulfuric acid, hydrogen cyanide, methanol and acetone. Individually, they aren’t the safest substances, but the final result is completely harmless. PERSPEX® is flammable, but when burnt, it creates no harmful substances at all. The residual products are just carbon dioxide and water.
PERSPEX® is not only lightweight and very resistant to impact, but the material also resists bad weather and UV rays. It also has a high degree of sound insulation. These properties mean that PERSPEX® is very suitable for outdoor applications, such as replacement windows, boat windows, patio covers, front door canopies, noise barriers, windshields and nameplates.
Customers often ask us what is the difference between PERSPEX® and clear acrylic sheet. The short answer is: there’s no difference. Acrylic is the common abbreviation for polymethyl methacrylate. PERSPEX® is just one of the many brand names for this plastic and over time, the brand name has become a generic name. It’s similar to Hoover, a manufacturer of vacuum cleaners whose name has become synonymous with vacuums. Read more about acrylic advantages and disadvantages.
Cast PERSPEX® offers endless options as the material is so easy to work with. Whether you want to create a transparent bedside table, a unique welcome sign for your wedding or want to replace your basketball backboard, it’s all possible with PERSPEX®.
