Frosted Perspex® Acrylic Sheets
Frosted Acrylic Sheets come with a 2-sided smooth and aesthetic matte finish which is consistent across the entire sheet. We supply them in white, stone grey and slate grey colours and these can all be cut to your exact sized requirements in both 3mm and 5mm thicknesses. The matte finish gives the popular effect of sandblasted or acid-etched glass. Whether you're an interior designer, architect or tradesman, our frosted acrylic sheets are the perfect choice for your next project.
This contemporary, frosted Perspex® Acrylic, is commonly used to modernise a room either as a door pane, or a privacy divider. In addition to being a smart design style, Frosted Perspex® is frequently used in hygienic environments and places where privacy is important. One of our most popular uses for frosted acrylic is for privacy shed windows since the material is weather resistant and decreases visibility whilst still allowing light to pass through. It is worth considering however that while the frosted acrylic limits transparency, any object put behind the acrylic would cast a shadow as a result.
Frosted Perspex® boasts all of the typical high-quality acrylic properties. As a result, our Frosted Acrylic is ideal for a huge range of exciting projects. If you want to make a dramatic impact, using frosted acrylic sheeting will elevate your project to a modern, sleek design.
At Cut My, we understand that every project is different. All you need to do is enter your dimensions and we will cut the sheet to size for you with a brilliant cutting tolerance of +/- 1mm, making the installation an easy process for you. We also offer drilled holes and cutouts which will provide you with extra flexibility for your specific projects. This is an ideal solution for seamless integration of your frosted sheets if you have cables or light switches that you need to install around.
If you are unsure if a frosted acrylic sheet is the right material for you, please take a look at our acrylic sheet page for our other finishes. Alternatively, you can order a sample from us to ensure that frosted acrylic is suitable for your requirements before placing your final order.

Frequently Asked Questions for Frosted Acrylic Sheets
What’s the difference between Perspex® and acrylic?
Perspex® is a brand of acrylic plastic. They are the same.
Can I get samples of your frosted 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 acrylic and tinted samples will always be the correct thickness.
How much light passes through frosted acrylic sheets?
Up to 85% of light passes through frosted acrylic sheets
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 frosted acrylic 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.
Is acrylic Perspex® heat resistant?
Perspex® sheets will melt at high temperatures or from exposure to direct flames. The melting point for acrylic Perspex® is 80̊C so they cannot withstand extreme temperatures.
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.
How can I clean frosted Perspex® acrylic?
Keeping your Acrylic 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.
How can I remove scratches from Frosted Acrylic?
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 can I cut Frosted Acrylic sheets?
While it is possible to cut acrylic sheets yourself, we do suggest that you request it cut to size before ordering as we can expertly and safely meet your requirements. We use a variety of tools here at Cut My, including saws, routers and lasers and our staff have plenty of safety equipment and knowledge of the correct techniques for cutting acrylic sheets.

Is Acrylic Perspex® recyclable?
