This Bulk Pack of 3mm Transparent Perspex Acrylic Sheets contains five sheets, each measuring 1000mm x 600mm. The surfaces of the sheets have a high gloss finish. Transparent Perspex sheets will allow light to pass through clearly, enabling objects to be distinguished through the material, though the view is tinted by the colour of the Perspex. We have seen these sheets used to great effect in lighting designs. Kitronik stock a range of colours in our transparent acrylic range.
- High gloss surface.
- Very high light transmission.
- 'Colour tinted' transparency.
- Easily laser cut, drilled and thermoformed.
Transparent Perspex acrylic sheets have many applications such as lighting designs, 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.
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 required 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).
More detailed information and resources on working with Perspex can be found in our resource section.

- Length: 1000mm.
- Width: 600mm.
- Thickness: 3mm (nominal).
The manufacturing tolerance for the thickness of cast Perspex acrylic sheets are the stated thickness +/-10% plus +/- 0.4mm. This means a 3mm Perspex sheet could be between 2.3mm and 3.7mm in thickness.
- Physical properties of Perspex.
- We have a range of guides that explain techniques for working with Perspex. These can be found under the 'Resources' tab.
- On all Plywood, MDF and Perspex Sheet Orders (excluding A4 size) there is a flat delivery charge of £6.50 per order in the U.K. (£18.00 for remote locations).
If you've ever done any projects involving Perspex, no matter how careful you've been to maximise your usage, you'll always have at least some scrap Perspex left over. Harry Gowlett, a second year Secondary Design and Technology Education student at Nottingham Trent University, shares some excellent tips on how you might recycle your Perspex offcuts into useful items.

0voteA: We do a custom cutting service, which you can find under the 'Perspex sheet' crumb trail. On this we would cut a 3m x 2m sheet in to 150mm strips. You would get 19 strips of 150mm x 2030 which would be just under the 41 Lm you require, we could then cut a 2nd sheet to the same specification. If you want a specific size then that can be cut for you.Posted byon Friday, 11 April 2014
