Half the weight of glass, acrylic mirror is shatter resistant with extensive design flexibility. This material can be cut into intricate shapes, drilled, sanded, polished, machined, cold formed for curved shapes or heated for sharp line bends. Safer than glass with 10x the break resistance, acrylic mirror lends itself to many different applications. Acrylic mirror is a highly reflective material, manufactured by only a handful of companies nationwide. The material is an optically perfect acrylic sheet that is vacuum metalized in a vacuum chamber. All sheets are protected on the back by a durable scratch resistant coating and the front surface is protected with a clear polyethylene film.
Acrylic mirror is also available with options, such as a pressure sensitive backing, protected with a release line or with an abrasion resistant front surface for that extra durable requirement. The plastic may be plated on either surface, offering a standard mirrored sheet or a first surface mirrored sheet.
