Please contact us if you have tighter dimension tolerance requirements than our standard tolerances listed below.
Due to manufacturing and cutting tolerances, sheet length and width may vary by +/- 1/4".
Acrylic mirror sheet thickness tolerances are +/- 10% and can vary throughout the sheet, but variations are typically less than 5%. Please refer to nominal and actual sheet thicknesses below.
0.06” = 1.5mm
0.08” = 2mm
1/8" = 3mm = 0.118"
3/16" = 4.5mm = 0.177"
1/4" = 5.5mm = 0.217"
Acrylic mirror sheet colors are available in a variety of colors including:
Clear Acrylic, Black, Blue, Bronze, Green, Gold, Orange, Purple, Red, Rose Gold, and Yellow.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the flexible and distorted reflective nature of acrylic mirror material, it is not recommended that large acrylic mirror sheets or acrylic mirror products be used as a replacement or substitution for glass mirror when optimal proportionality and clarity is necessary or required.
Lightweight, impact, and shatter-resistant, mirrored acrylic sheets are less expensive and more durable than glass. Flexibility makes it preferable to glass, and the range of colors available makes it an ideal material for multiple applications and industries, including see-through or surveillance mirrored acrylic panels. Acrylic may be cut, drilled, shaped, or thermoformed.
Features of Acrylic Mirror Sheets
Acrylic mirror sheets are a safe alternative to traditional glass mirrors. They are lightweight, flexible, and shatter-resistant. There are many common uses for acrylic mirrors, with the most popular being point-of-purchase, security, cosmetics, marine, and automotive projects. Acme Plastics' acrylic mirror sheets come in a variety of colors, thicknesses and sizes. We also offer cut-to-size acrylic mirror sheet options.
Please note: Since an acrylic mirror is flexible and not as rigid as a glass mirror, it will need to be mounted on a solid frame or surface to avoid a distorted "fun-house" like reflection.
How to Install Acrylic Plastic Sheets
Make sure you are fully equipped with the resources you need to cut your acrylic mirrors. Watch our video to see how.
How Do You Install Acrylic Mirror Sheets?
To effectively cut and install acrylic mirror sheets at home, you can do the following:
Measure and clearly mark where you want to cut
Using a scoring knife, create a shallow cut in the sheet
Place the sheet of acrylic mirror side up
Place the section with the shallow cut over the edge of the surface
Quickly and steadily bend the sheet so that it breaks in a straight, clean edge
What Is An Acrylic Mirror Made Of?
Acrylic mirrors are made from acrylic plastic. Through the process of vacuum metalizing, acrylic is continually processed and gives the plastic a mirror finish.
Are Acrylic Mirror Sheets Durable?
Yes, acrylic mirror sheets are durable. Acrylic mirror sheets are waterproof, shatterproof, and can even be bent. Acrylic mirror sheets are so durable you could use them outdoors during rainy weather. They also are much more impact resistant than glass mirrors.
It's important to note that the thinner the acrylic mirror is the more flexible it becomes. However, its flexibility is limited before it snaps. For further shaping, an acrylic mirror can be cold bent for a curved shape, or strip heated for a sharper bend
How Do You Hang An Acrylic Mirror?
An acrylic mirror is easier to hang than most mirrors because they are lightweight. The most common ways to hang an acrylic mirror are through the use of screws or an acrylic adhesive. Which option you choose to use to mount the acrylic mirror should be dependent on the mounting surface as well as the properties of the mirror.
Applications for Acrylic Mirror Sheets
Acrylic mirror sheets are a great, safe alternative to traditional glass mirrors. In fact, they have many different uses such as:
Decorative furniture and cabinet making
Fitness center mirrors
Do Acrylic Mirrors Distort?
Acrylic mirrors can distort if bent in a certain way. This distortion results in a “fun house” like reflection, due to its flexibility. To avoid this, we recommend placing it on a solid frame or surface.
