        Very Poorly Packaged
        Arrived with two broken corners and an 8 inch crack. Very poorly packaged, just loose in a box with a thin piece of cardboard. For the high price Home Depot could afford a little bubble wrap!

          We purchased the OPTIX 24" x 48" x 1/8" Black Acrylic Sheet because we wanted to make a plastic panel face to replace our steel framed shower panel that started to rust. Having had experience with acrylics made working with this panel an easy task. The density of the 1/8" acrylic, or material strength, is enough to hold the entire shower plumbing consisting of metal valves and plastic tubing and nozzles weighing 14 pounds (6.35Kg). Cutting the sheet to size required a 60 tooth fine cut blade at 3000 rpm on the table saw and a smooth slow feed so as to not melt the acrylic. Cutting various round holes did not require any special tooling as we used normal wood cutting hole cutters at 1200 rpm on the drill press. The feel was slow down and up quickly so as not to melt the acrylic. We recommend the OPTIX 24 in. x 48 in. x 0.118 1/8 in. Black Acrylic Sheet for any project where it can be used as it's easy to work with using woodworking tools, be glued with acrylic or epoxy adhesive (our preference) and the edges, so as to not leave then sharp, can be smoothed out with 140 grit sandpaper. Highly recommended!

          Worked great for my project!
          Worked perfect to make windows for my shed doors and 0.93 was just the right thickness, was worried it would be too thin but size of the window and having a frame, it was fine. I did find it harder to cut by scoring then I thought it would be, it was definitely a learning experience but all and all, really pleased.

            Just touching it with your fingers left scratches... wishing I had stuck with glass!

            I thought this would be better than glass because it's break resistance... the chipping when you cut it on a table saw may have happened because of the blade I used.... but the scratches when I touched it with my fingers, is why I took this second piece back to home depot!

            Bought this to cover a Hermit Crab Cage. Good quality and was easy to cut, shape and drill. Clear as glass and worked perfect for the application I needed.

              Looks Great and Very Sturdy
              looks great. was able to shave off about an eighth of an inch to make a perfect fit. used an angle grinder. 40 grit peas to lightly sand the edge down. couldn't have asked for a better result.
