I have questions about acrylic and need help.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I only have three questions.

Q1. How to join acrylic sheet to a metal sheet and how to join acrylic to another type of plastic?

Q2. Where from in th Uk could I get 500mmx500mm acrylic sheets in black? I found a place where they supply black acrylic but only in 400mmx400mm sheets frown.gif

Q3. Does anyone have any idea on where in the Uk I could get acrylic sheets to be laser cut?

1 Depends on the application, some special glues bond plastic together by slightly melting them, normal glues can do the job or bolting pieces together, depends how you will be using them and pressure that will be applied to joins aswell as how you need joins to look

2 There are places out there and most will supply it if you ask for it even if its not listed, also you need to know which thickness you will need

http://www.sheetplastics.co.uk/Acrylic_Perspex_Sheet/Colour_Perspex_Sheet/Black_Acrylic_Sheet/3mm_Black_Perspex?product_id=580

3 The above supplies should do it for you for cost, once again just ask the suppliers 9/10 anything can be cut to size and sometimes shaped etc too but obviously that all comes to cost

rep+ :-D
