Acrylic (Mirrored Red)
Extruded Mirror Acrylic Sheet
What is mirror acrylic?
Fabback Mirror Acrylic Sheets from Optix are a strong, lightweight thermoplastic material developed as a replacement for glass mirror, especially for use in settings where there is higher material stress, risk of breakage or safety concerns.
Fabback mirror acrylic sheets feature a thin gray paint backing and a film covered front. The film masking should be left on during handling and fabrication. After fabrication, the film can be peeled off. The durable gray backing is the toughest, most scratch resistant backing in the industry, but should still be handled with care.
Mirror acrylic is ideal for use as a decorative reflective surface, merchandising display and an esthetic, and less expensive, lighter replacement for glass mirror.
Please note, as mirror acrylic has a relatively soft surface and is flexible, some imperfections or distortion can occur. As such, it should not be used where precise image reflection is required.
