They make an an excellent alternative to glass mirrors. Shatter proof, marr-resistant and 17x stronger than glass, they can be used indoors for decoration or outdoors in the garden.

As acrylic mirrors are more flexible than glass they must be fixed to a flat wall/surface. If you are fitting it to a wall which is not flat, it is best to fit it first to something rigid such as a piece of MDF.

Features:

  • Mirror finish.
  • Shatter proof.
  • Very low light transmission.
  • Easily laser cut, drilled and thermoformed.

Applications:

Mirror Perspex acrylic sheets have many applications such as display, point of sale, artistic and architectural installation, and of course replacement mirrors.

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 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.

Question:

Answers:

  • Posted by Michael Lockhart on Thursday, 19 February 2015

    Doudle sided tape wont effect the backing of the Perspex, however you must ensure that the tape will securly hold the Perspex in place.

Question:

Hi from experience I have found that the grey/black backed acrylic tends to not cut very well on a laser cutter. Does this have a white back?

Answers:

  • Posted by Aaron Sturman on Thursday, 27 November 2014

    It's an off-white colour. I've cut it before with a laser and it seemed ok.

Question:

Are acrylic mirror sheets suitable for a dance studio?

Answers:

  • Posted by Aaron Sturman on Wednesday, 15 October 2014
    Hi, the Perspex website (manufacturer of the material we sell) says "Extuded acrylic mirror, at half the weight and five times the impact strength of plate glass mirror, offers all the benefits without the associated risk of breakages."

Question:

Hi there, would it be possible to have mirrored acrylic cut to sizes of approx 40mm x 210mm? I need about 300 this size... How much would this be? Thank-you very much, Chris

Answers:

  • Posted by Aaron Sturman on Tuesday, 13 August 2013
    Hi Chris! Our laser cutter is only 600x400mm so we would have to use the smaller sheets. You would be looking at around ?0.69 per 40x210 strip. If you email support@kitronik.co.uk I can give you a proper quote. Also the sizes would only be accurate to about 1mm. Some might be 41mmx209mm or similar.

Question:

How about dye sublimation - will it cope with 180degC? Thanks

Answers:

  • Posted by Aaron Sturman on Tuesday, 26 March 2013
    Are you looking to evaporate a dye then let it condense on the surface of the mirror? Or are you going to heat the Perspex to 180C and concerned about the mirror finish evaporating off of the Perspex?
