Plaskolite branded extruded mirrored acrylic is a highly reflective mirror on one side only with a grey backing
Silver acrylic mirror Sheet or perspex mirror is an excellent alternative to glass mirrors
Its impact strength is around 10 times greater, more flexible, shatter-proof and safer than traditional glass in equal thickness
The high quality vacuum-plated acrylic sheet with a mirror finish has a highly reflective surface which is protected by a durable acrylic polymer paint with PU top coat
Suitable for a wide range of applications due to their excellent impact resistance and light weight
Used largely in the retail sector mirrored acrylic is a viable alternative to heavy expensive traditional mirrored glass
Easy to fabricate
Mirrored acrylic can be cut to limitless shapes and sizes
Can be drilled and glued or screwed in place very easily
As mirrored acrylic is safe to handle it can be used without any prior training unlike traditional glass mirror which requires extremely careful handling and storing
The flexibility and low weight of extruded acrylic mirror along with its relatively high impact strength makes it the ideal solution in both industrial and domestic settings
Supplied with a protective plastic film on one side
Not as rigid as glass mirror and, as with all acrylic mirror, visual distortion can occur
Correct installation and sufficient material thickness can reduce visual distortion but will not completely eliminate it
As some adhesives attack the mirrored surface, we recommend using our Evo-Stik acrylic mirror adhesive
It is not recommended any acrylic mirror product is used as a direct replacement for glass mirrors.
Due to the nature of the product acrylic mirrors can reflect a distorted reflection in any mirror size and is more prominent with larger pieces as the material is more flexible.
Using a thicker acrylic mirror such as our 5mm or 6mm mirrored acrylic can help reduce distortion as the material is more rigid compared to the 3mm sheets.
It is the manufacturers recommendation that the acrylic mirror is affixed to a solid material such as mdf or plywood before installing to the wall or surface required. This is to help ensure the mirror is sitting flat and even to help reduce a distorted mirror reflection.
As the acrylic mirror is not sold as a direct replacement to glass, any manufacturers recommendations for installation do not guarantee a distortion free image but by employing such methods can help reduce the distortion.
As with any mirror. acrylic mirrors should not be kept in any place where they can concentrate the suns rays causing any nearby object to set fire.
Only adhesives specifically suitable for acrylic mirrors are suitable for installation. Do NOT use adhesives such as "no nails" as this will damage and attack the mirror surfacing.
