This 3mm Gold Duo Perspex Acrylic Sheet measures 600mm x 400mm. Perspex Duo is a rich, solid, black sheet covered by a layer of silver pigment that allows the black to show through when engraved.

Perspex Duo offers two beautiful effects in just one product - a metallic sparkle that contrasts elegantly with a rich black. However, should you choose not to engrave Perspex Duo, the silver offers a deluxe feel as a solid sheet, with the metallic pigment giving it a lovely lustrous sheen whose vibrancy is further enhanced under strong lighting.

Features:

  • Two effects in one product.
  • Very low light transmission.
  • Easily laser cut, drilled and thermoformed.

Applications:

Gold Duo Perspex acrylic sheets have many applications such as point of sale, model making, signs, artistic and architectural installation, casings, etc.

Working with Perspex acrylic sheets:

Perspex is a versatile material that can be cut, drilled, laser cut and thermoformed. Note when laser cutting place the rear side of the Perspex to the top, so the laser is not bouncing off the reflective surface.

Perspex is a thermoplastic which means that when it is heated above 140-180C it becomes flexible. This allows the material to be formed into the requiBlue shape or bent. Once the material cools below 85C it becomes rigid again.

Perspex sheets are often shaped using a CNC router or laser cutter. The edge of laser cut Perspex has a pleasing polished look. If you look carefully at the edge of a piece of laser cut Perspex you can often see slight vertical lines that are caused by the pulses a laser uses when cutting.

If you want to get a perfectly smooth finish on the edge of piece of machined Perspex a polishing technique can be used. Typical polishing techniques include diamond polishing and flame polishing.

It also possible to etch the surface of a Perspex sheet using a laser cutter. This can produce some very pleasing visual effects. The Perspex sheets have a protective film on both faces. If you are etching the material then this should be removed from the surface that is to be etched. If you are just laser cutting then this film can be left in place (if you wish) as it does not create any harmful gases when it is laser cut (unlike PVC).

Question:

Hi, What does the back of this sheet look like? Is this basically an opaque black sheet with the gold pigment on top? I am looking for a gold effect that looks attractive from the front and back. thanks

    Hi Chris, yes this is a black sheet with a layer of gold effect on one side. You probably want just a gold metallic sheet. https://www.kitronik.co.uk/products/perspex/special-finish-acrylic-sheets/3mm-metallic-gold-perspex-1000mm-x-500mm/ The image makes it look a lot browner than it is. You might want to try searching for gold mirror acrylic.
