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!

      Just what I needed for a clear barrier to keep my trains from falling to the floor
      I needed a clear barrier to mount to the edge of the shelf that runs the perimeter of my workshop for my model trains. This worked out perfectly. I cut the sheet into 36" long by 3" strips and after drilling holes every 4 inches on one side, mounted them to the shelf that my double-track trains run on. This was needed to prevent trains from falling 7 feet to the floor in case of a derailment.

      I have a dog that goes ballistic if there is a cat outside "his" window. I've been placing a baby gate across the window to prevent him from breaking the window. I found window sill protectors made of acrylic, then I cut the sheet of Optix to fit the window across the wide and to the top of the bottom half of the window. I used Velcro to attach it to the metal frame of the window. Looks fantastic and protects my window sill from scratches and the glass from breaking! Very pleased with the results.

      This product was better than I expected. I needed needed a slightly different size so I had to cut them down to fit my job. The panels were easy to work with and cut nicely with a sharp utility knife.

      Saved money by doing it myself but not as cheap as glass... They won't cut glass in store any more... Bummer
      Replaced a broken window. This acrylic is clear and strong. It does what it's intended to do. It would have got 5 starts if it had installed itself...

      Shattered after 2 bounces from basketball
      I bought this to reinforce a cracked basketball backboard. It is the same thickness and acrylic glue was used for a permanent bond. All seemed perfect until it was used and it shattered after 2 backboard shots.

        Terrible quality
        I purchased to build an acrylic box for mold making. I am not new to using acrylic sheeting, go through quite a bit each year for past 15 years or so. This does not cut well at all. I tried the scoring method which generally works wonderfully, fail. Tried scoring both sides, again fail. Tried scoring 10 times on each side, fail.

          Works well on a laser cutting machine
          Uniform white opaque color. Cuts very smoothly on a laser cutter and requires no further finishing. Seems pricey for a piece of acrylic sheet.

            I made my wife a anniversary gift. Great product and easy to use once you get the hang of it. However, it is unforgiving and can be a bully. After watching YouTube videos I decided to use a saw. The material is not as firm as glass. For that you have to spend more money and get a thicker piece.

              The outer glass on our French doors broke. I decided to replace it with OPTIX. The installation went perfectly. Using a plexiglass cutter, I scored the OPTIX on the garage floor with a sheet of pasteboard underneath it and a straight 1' x 6" as a guide. The OPTIX broke evenly. I do recommend an assistant to hold the guide steady. The OPTIX is as clear as glass and looks exactly like the other French door.

              My nightmare experience - no way to complaint
              To: Customer Care Complaints Department Dear Sir/Madam, It is with great regret that I have to inform you of a very bad service I experienced with your store in Alhambra. I hope that once you have researched this issue, we can come to a mutual agreement about what needs to take place in order to resolve this issue. On June 14, 2021, I came to your Alhambra Store and want to return the broken acrylic sheets. Unfortunately, my request was not processed correctly as a result of cutting and gluing the acrylic sheet to build the fish tank. I felt indignity to beg for money back that I left my broken fish tank in your store. Frankly, this is unacceptable and I am disappointed that I now have to take additional time trying to resolve the problem. I am asking for your personal assistant for a quick resolution. After I started to buy the Optix Acrylic Sheet, order ID H6610-328364, to build a fish tank on your website on April 2, 2021, my nightmare has been continuing to now. On my first order, I paid $281.5. When I finished installing the fish tank, I tore off the adhesive tape on the acrylic sheet. I found a lot of cracks in the front piece. I did not choose to return the product, but I chose to buy a new one, order ID 6610 00061 43762 $73.98, on April 16, 2021, to replace it. After I finished, I found that the other piece had deep cracks which I could not repair at all. I thought it may be my fault. I decided to give up that fish tank and rebuild the new one. On Apr 22, 2021, I bought 4 more pieces of acrylic sheet, Order ID 6610-00012-06302 $207.52, and started to rebuild my fish tank again. I also bought a Sander kit, #6610-00051-04480 $79.28, on April 28 and Polisher, W864625161 $145, on May 5, 2021, for backup. But, the cracks automatically happened again in the rebuilt fish tank. On May 9, 2021, I bought another sheet, #6610-00053-09027 $73.98, to replace the crack sheet. I thought this time it would be OK, but two days later, a big crack automatically appeared on the next sheet again. On May 15, 2021, I bought another one, #6610-00060-01853 $73.98, to fix it. But when I fix that sheet, the other one will crack automatically 2 or 3 days later. I thought the fish tank may be too big to make it crack. So, I cut the size from 48 in to 40 in. And, brought the crack to the Alhambra store to return, #6610-00019-03025, and bought the new one, #6610-00053-02001, on May 18, 2021. On May 19, 2021, I found the new sheet crack inside. So, I returned it #6610-00019-03218, and brought the new one, #6610-00061-09456 to replace the crack tank again. But, on Jun 7, 2021, The automatic crack happened repeatedly on the left side of the fish tank. It really made me crazy. I decided this was the last time I repaired the fish tank. So, I cut off the left crack sheet and brought it back to return #6610-00020-08882, and bought the new one, #6610-00051-06681, again. I tried my best but I chose to surrender. On Jun 14, The big cracks happened repeatedly on the backside of the tank. I can’t stand it. So, I brought the whole tank to the Alhambra store to request a refund of the first order total of $281.5 + tax. I think it’s fair because I pay a total of $935.24 + tax. I lost a lot of money and time because the product's quality is so bad. And, I am felt indignity by your unreasonable and unfriendly Senior Staff. I really can’t stand it. I am a loyal customer who has purchased many products from your stores and online stores. In an effort to assist you, I have enclosed copies of the receipt. I would appreciate your refund or give me back the normal fish tank. I am looking forward to hearing from you soon. However, please be advised that if I do not receive a satisfactory response to this request prior to 7.14, 2021, I will have no choice but to seek assistance from a Legal Advisor. I do hope that won't be necessary. Sincerely

                I cut this acrylic in half keeping the 32 inch length. Then I affixed it to the bottom both sides of our sliding screen door with screen clips to protect the screen from our dog scratching and busting through, an idea I hope someone can use.
