Plexiglass Sheets in Black & White
Authentic Plexiglas acrylic sheets in various shades of opaque black plexiglass and white plexiglass - for lighting, lighted signs, and solid signs. Black available from 1/16" to 1.00" thick. White from 1/16" to 1/2". Thicker on special order.
Please note: light transmission of white Plexiglass sheets change with thickness. Therefore 1/8" 2447 lighting white will transmit more light than 3/16", and 1/4" 2447 less transmission than 3/16". Basically the thicker the white, the less the light transmitted. This is true with ALL whites and translucent colors. There may be small differences in color between manufacturers and between batches if the pieces are placed side by side. Transparent colors do NOT change with thickness but can have slight differences between manufacturers.
White Plexiglass Color and Application:
2447 - lighting, light boxes and tables - maximum transmission
7328 - back-lighted signage
7508 - non-lighted signage, opaque white
Thickness tolerances are plus/minus 10% on acrylic sheet. Thickness can vary throughout the sheet. Normally we see plus/minus 5% or less differences. Use this list as a guide converting fractions to what is actually produced industry-wide.
We cut to size all sheets we sell. In fact, by cutting down the material for you at our factory, our customers can save on shipping costs since the final package is usually smaller and ships more economically. Simply add the sheets that you need to the cart, and enter the measurements in the "Cutting Info" box, and then add a Labor-Cutting line item for the number of cuts you need. Simple!
