Size:
12x19 inches* *All materials are advertised at 12x19 inches. There is some variation though due to the manufacturing and cutting process that can result in pieces being narrower in some cases. We will not send out boards less than 11.75 inches, but in particular Cracked Crystal and some other patter acrylics have special molds that are used to create the pattern. There is also some trimming of edges to avoid inconsistent patterns. This sometimes results in pieces being as narrow as 11.75 inches. If your project requires the full 12 inches, please make the order then email us at info@craftcloset.com and we will specifically pick acrylics that meet your requirements. If you ever receive an acrylic that does not meet you needs, contact us and we will correct the problem. Thank you for understanding the variation.

Thickness: 2.6mm

Features:

  • Premium quality- 1/8th inch thick (3mm) cast acrylic. Excellent optical properties, light weight and stronger than glass, this premium cast acrylic is a superior product to use for trophies, signs, handicraft, laser cutting and an endless variety of other applications
  • Masking- Both sides are masked with a paper masking to prevent scratches and to provide durability during shipping and crafting. This also prevents scorch marks during laser cutting.
  • Durable, versatile and multipurpose, perfect for all your acrylic needs. This cast acrylic can be used with Glowforge, Mira, Thunder, Trotec, Epilog, and other lasers, routers, Dremels and scroll saws. It can also be glued, bent with heat, and drilled.

The metallic coloration extends through the sheet. Both sides have the metallic reflective surface. However, due to the manufacturing process, one side is perfectly flat but the one side may have “flow marks.” This means that the melted acrylic did not perfectly flatten out on the top side when produced. This has resulted in some sheets having some irregular surface. So it is best to plan one sided projects, or smaller projects which can work around these lines. This is the most beautiful acrylic material we sell.  It is absolutely amazing and we know you will love it, but we want you to understand the limitations with one side of the material. We have shown images below so you can see what we mean by the “flow marks.” Also, while most acrylics do fine removing the masking, this material cuts best with the masking in place.
