Everything you need to know about tinted acrylic sheets

You can use tinted acrylic for many different applications, varying from shower enclosures to window glazing. It is twice as light and 30 times as strong as ordinary glass. All our tinted acrylic sheets are cast, so they’re easy to work with. We offer our range of brightly coloured sheets (red, orange, blue and green) in 3 mm thickness. The neutral colours (brown and grey tones) are also available in the thickness of 5 mm and 8 mm.

Applications of tinted acrylic

Tinted acrylic is very suitable for practical applications, such as shower walls or splashbacks. Our brown and grey-tinted panels lend themselves well to windows for caravans or boats, a made to measure door canopy or as wind protection for rabbit and chicken runs, where they maintain the temperature inside at a pleasant level. With our brightly coloured acrylic sheets, you can create eye-catching decorative pieces for your home such as a lamp, a tablet holder or a unique acrylic bowl.

Types of tinted acrylic

Our range of tinted acrylic sheet consists of two types: practical and decorative. For practical solutions, such as a boat window or chicken run, we offer brown and grey-tinted plates in thicknesses of 3 mm, 5 mm and 8 mm.

Tinted acrylic sheets in red, orange, blue and green are only available in the 3 mm thickness. These sheets are recommended if you want to make your own home accessories, such as a wind light or a striking pen holder.

Tinted acrylic, just like other moulded acrylic sheets, is strong, durable and easy to process. You can mill, engrave, drill, bend (hot), glue, saw and polish the sheets.

Maintenance of acrylic sheet

Cleaning and keeping acrylic looking its best requires a little more attention than cleaning traditional glass as acrylic is more scratch-sensitive. 

Description

Our range tinted acrylic sheets can be divided into two sections: decorative and practical. Plasticsheetsshop supplies decorative, tinted acrylic sheets in the colours redbluegreenyellow and orange in a thickness of 3 millimetres. All tinted acrylic sheets can be cut to any required size with a maximum of 240 by 100 centimetres. Tinted acrylic is transparent, evenly coloured and UV resistant. It is also 30 times more impact resistant than regular glass and weighs much less. This makes them both decorative and practical, suited for interior applications such as bathroom cladding and kitchen splashbacks. Add a subtle backlighting and these sheets take on an entirely new dimension! Read more about the practical tinted sheets and the characteristics at the bottom of this page.

Characteristics of tinted acrylic sheets

The practical tinted acrylic sheets include the colours brown and grey. They are available in a thickness of 35 and 8 millimetres and a maximum sheet size of 305 by 203 centimetres. For tinted acrylic this is the largest sheet size available in our online shop, but we can cut it to a smaller size. Tinted acrylic sheets offer solar and UV protection and their light and heat reflective properties make them an ideal choice for the replacement of windows. Other outdoor applications for tinted acrylic sheets are secondary glazingboat windows and windbreakers for animal shelters.

Tinted acrylic sheets are an outstanding material for DIY projects. The sheets are easy to work with using standard DIY tools. Even without a lot of experience you can easily cut, saw or drill an acrylic sheet. Bending an acrylic sheet requires heating it in an oven or with a heat gun. Acrylic plastic is a thermoplastic material, meaning the sheets will soften as they are heated. Compared to regular glass, acrylic only has one main downside: it’s more likely to get scratched. Scratches can be easily removed by polishing the surface. Tinted acrylic sheeting lends itself to a wide range of versatile applications, so please contact us if you would like more information.
