Not many people realise that Perspex is actually a brand name or a tradename. Thus, they often use the term to refer to acrylic glass. With the passage of time, Perspex has become a generic term used for referring to acrylic sheets. Some people might feel that Perspex or acrylic has come into being fairly recently. But, this is not the case. Acrylic has been around for more than a century. But, its commercial use has become increasingly widespread since the end of the Second World War. Perspex is very light. Experts opine that it weighs less than half the weight of glass for a sheet of the same size. In addition, Perspex sheets are as transparent as optical glass. Because Perspex is lightweight, some people might think that it is a flimsy material. But, this is clearly not the case. Perspex is incredibly strong. It offers a much greater impact resistance than glass does. On the occasions when it does shatter, Perspex shatters more safely than glass. Perspex also offers better levels of thermal insulation as compared to glass. Not surprisingly, Perspex cutting companies in Sydney and other places find it much easier to work with and shape as opposed to glass.
Perspex is completely recyclable. It can also block the damaging ultraviolet rays of the sun. Given this fact, it is hardly surprising that many museums and art galleries use special ultraviolet-grade Perspex sheets for protecting their exhibits and artwork. As a material, Perspex is hard and rigid. Yet, plastic fabricators can bend it into the desired shape with minimal fuss. In many cases, these professionals will use heat for making Perspex more malleable. However, they could use kerf bending or cutting techniques to meet this objective as well. Professional plastic fabricators, such as those at FX Plastics use laser cutters for cutting slots in the Perspex sheet. Cutting slots in the sheet makes it easier to bend the sheet into the desired shape. In some cases, making engravings on the Perspex sheet might be necessary too. The use of CNC engraving machines or laser cutters can help accomplish this objective.
Obtaining high-quality sheets of Perspex might be easy. But, cutting these sheets to meet exacting specifications is not. Similarly, giving the sheet of Perspex the desired form or shape is not an easy task. Even with the use of cutting-edge technology, the slightest mistake could mar the entire sheet.
