Frequently Asked Questions

How strong is an 8mm acrylic sheet?

The 8mm thickness provides acrylic sheets with substantial strength and durability for demanding applications requiring a rigid, resilient material.

How do you cut 8mm acrylic sheets?

Cutting 8mm acrylic requires power tools like a table saw or CNC machine to achieve clean, precise cuts without cracking or chipping the material.

How do you bend 8mm acrylic?

To bend 8mm acrylic, use controlled strip heating or an oven to softly heat the sheets all the way through before gradually bending over forms. Do not attempt to cold bend or crease 8mm acrylic as it will likely crack.

It took a while to come even though it was a sample piece. No response to the emails which is the only thing I found disappointing.
