Acrylic Sheeting. Clear and coloured perspex sheets in a variety of thicknesses.

Acrylic also called Poly Methyl Methacrylate (PMMA) is a transparent thermoplastic often used as light weight or shatter-resistant alternatives to glass. Acrylic is an economical alternative to polycarbonate when extreme strength is not necessary. Additionally, doesn't contain potentially harmful bisphenol-A subunits. Often preferred because of moderate properties, easy handling and processing and low cost. Acrylic in sheet form affords shatter resistant panels for building windows, skylights, bulletproof security barriers, signs and displays and many other applications. In Robotics it is often laser cut into shapes off base boards or motor speed detecting code discs.
