Cast acrylic can be recycled all the way back to its original raw material, the monomer.
Is there any difference between acrylic and Perspex?
Acrylic (chemical name Poly (methyl methacrylate) (PMMA)) is commonly referred to as Perspex, however Perspex is just a brand name. Other brands include Plexiglass, Acryglas, Acrycast, Policril, Quinn, and Plazit.How should I clean acrylic sheet?
Acrylic should not be cleaned using chemical cleaners because they can cause damage to the acrylic. We recommend cleaning acrylic sheet with warm soapy water and a soft cloth. There are various acrylic cleaners and polishers available which we can provide that keep acrylic looking like brand new.
Is it possible to cut acrylic sheet myself?
Acrylic sheet can be cut using a circular saw, a jigsaw or any type of saw with a fine tooth blade. We recommend laying the acrylic flat on a firm surface, such as a workbench, and clamping it down before cutting. If you are using clamps to hold the material down, we suggest placing wood between the clamps and acrylic sheet to prevent any damage to the surface of the acrylic. Manufacturer safety precautions should always be followed when using any type of saw.
