Acrylic is a rigid, transparent, thermoplastic material.

Naturally colourless and exceptionally clear, it can be pigmented to obtain a wide range of tints and colours with almost unlimited scope in varying light transmission and diffusion.

It is inert to many corrosive chemicals (subject to annealing) and has light transmission properties and resistance to weathering which are unrivalled by many other plastic materials.

A wide variety of industrial and artistic processes can be used to machine, fabricate or shape acrylic sheet.

Acrylic is also referred to as Perspex, Plexiglas or Lucite.
