Frequently Asked Questions for 30mm Clear Acrylic Sheets
What’s the difference between 30mm Clear Perspex® and 30mm Clear Acrylic?
Perspex® is a brand of acrylic plastic. They are the same.
What's the difference between 30mm Clear Acrylic and 30mm Clear Polycarbonate?
Acrylic sheets are cheaper and more scratch resistant than Polycarbonate, however, Polycarbonate is 30x stronger than Acrylic so it is a more impact-resistant alternative.
Can I get samples of your 30mm Clear acrylic?
You can request samples of any of our products: When on the store page for the material you are interested in, first select the thickness you want, then scroll down and find the "Request Sample" button. This will add one sample unit to the shopping cart. Make sure to check your shopping cart before checking out.
Acrylic samples come as 10cm squares and are intended to let you see the colour or finish in real life. For coloured acrylic, sometimes we won't have sample stock of the exact thickness you ask for, but you'll still get the right colours. Clear and tinted samples will always be the correct thickness as the thickness can be important for the properties of the product.
Do I need polished edges?
If your item is going to be on display and is not going to be set into a frame, we recommend opting for polished edges when possible. This will leave the edges as smooth and transparent as the surface. Without this, your item may have slightly visible tool marks along the cut surfaces. This is particularly important for items that will be handled, as the edges would otherwise be rough. The effect of a polished edge will be more visible on thicker sheets of acrylic.
Is 30mm Clear Perspex® food safe?
Perspex® Acrylic Sheets comply with current EU and American (FDA) food contact regulations.
Why is my acrylic the wrong colour?
All of our acrylic products will be shipped with a thin protective film covering on both faces. This could be a variety of colours: blue, green and white are common, and may not have any branding or logos printed on it to make it obvious that it’s there. The cutting process can sometimes melt the film at the edges, causing it to stick very tightly to the surface of your acrylic, making it tricky to peel off. Work at the edges or corners carefully with a craft knife to make it release, then peel it off carefully.
If you are doing any installation or modification, you might want to leave the film in place while handling your new acrylic panels, to minimise scrapes and prevent fingerprints.
Important note about our acrylic splashbacks: If you have ordered one of our premium or budget splashbacks, then it will have a protective foil or vinyl on the back of it. Do not peel this off as it is there to prevent any adhesive from showing through the sheet. The protective foil will have a blue sticker on it informing you not to peel it off.
Is 30mm Clear Perspex® heat resistant?
Perspex® sheets will melt at high temperatures or from exposure to direct flames. The melting point for 30mm Clear Perspex® is 80̊C so they cannot withstand extreme temperatures.
Can I put 30mm Clear Acrylic behind a hob?
Electric, ceramic and induction hobs are safe to have acrylic panels behind them but there must be at least a 50mm gap between the panel and the hob. The safest option is to use a glass kitchen splashback for gas hobs. Please see our acrylic splashbacks page for more information on cooker types and acrylic.
Is Cut My able to fabricate my product?
We can cut to various sizes and shapes out of flat sheets in a range of thicknesses.
Can 30mm Clear Perspex® be painted or printed on?
Yes, 30mm Clear Perspex® can be painted or printed on as it has a smooth flat surface. However, choosing the right type of paint or ink is important to ensure adhesion and durability. It's also important to follow proper preparation and application techniques to avoid smudging or other issues.
How can I clean 30mm Clear Perspex®?
Keeping your 30mm Clear Perspex® clean and hygienic is easy to maintain, as all that is required is warm soapy water and a microfibre cloth. Please avoid using abrasive cleaners or materials, as these can scratch the surface of the material.
How resistant to scratching are your Acrylic Sheets?
Acrylic is not as scratch resistant as a similar panel of glass, but light surface marks can be more easily buffed out from acrylic. We offer a higher scratch protection finish on our 30mm Acrylic if you need extra safeguarding.

You can easily remove scratches from Acrylic with a Microfibre cloth and a high-quality polish. Following the instructions on the polish, the scratches will be removed using small circular motions.

How do I attach 30mm Clear Perspex® sheets to other materials?
