Many framers and their customers prefer clear Acrylic Glass to traditional glass because of its optical clarity, shatter-resistance and light weight
Acrylic Glass is optically clear, allowing 92% light transmission, more than that of float glass which tends to be 90% or lower. Acrylic Glass is also tint free and visually colourless. Other glazing options such as float glass or styrene have a faint tint of green or blue.
Score and snap to size. Score heavily using a knife, a scoring tool, or a wall cutter. Place it with the scored line up, just over the edge of the workbench and apply pressure to cleanly snap.
Acrylic Glass has inherent UV resistance due to the UV stabilizer that is added to protect against ageing. This absorbs many of the damaging UV wavelengths in natural and artificial light. This Acrylic is not museum grade.
Commonly also referred to as Perspex, Plexiglass and Plastic Glass.
