About Our Acrylic Mirror Sheets
Our 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. AULEN acrylic mirror sheets come in a variety of colors, thicknesses and sizes, and we offer cut-to-size mirror 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.
