Coloured Acrylic FAQ's
Q; What is the difference between acrylic & Perspex®?
A; Acrylic is the actual product and Perspex® is a brand name.
Q; Can you use colour acrylic as splash backs?
A; Yes, acrylic sheets are widely used for splash backs as long as they are not situated directly behind a cooker or hob.
Q; How do you clean acrylic sheets?
A; You can use soapy water or a specific acrylic cleaner such as Vuplex. Don't use glass cleaners as the chemicals damage acrylic.
Q; How do you cut acrylic?
