What is acrylic?

Acrylic and Perspex are essentially the same thing, as Perspex is simply a branded version of acrylic. Acrylic is a thermoplastic known as polyacrylate and is derived from a natural gas. Both acrylic and Perspex are a composition of MMA and PMMA resins.

What is styrene?

Styrene is a clear plastic that is often used as a cheaper alternative to acrylic. Styrene is durable and strong, perfect for displays that are exposed to customer handling. Styrene is used as a budget solution as it is less scratch-resistant than acrylic and doesn't offer the same crystal clear finish.

I’d like a colourful acrylic display, is this possible?

Acrylic display racks can be manufactured in a wide range of colours so, no matter what your display is, and whether you decide on clear or colour, there will be an acrylic display perfect for you.

Our acrylic shop display stands are crystal clear and finished with a diamond polish, so, depending on the style of product you are looking for, the clear finish may be best for you.

A clear acrylic stand will not distract customers or visitors from your product or literature, which might make them more likely to interact.

However, if colour is a part of your business, then perhaps clear display stands will get lost among your other displays or décor. Coloured acrylic still has the highest quality finish and will be on par with its clear counterpart.

Can plastic display products be used outdoors?

Acrylic, Perspex and plastic display stands can be used safely outside. The plastic will be waterproof and should not discolour or melt in the sunlight. We have a range of acrylic products, such as outdoor leaflet holders, that are specifically designed to be used outdoors.

How do I keep an acrylic display stand clean?

The best way to keep your acrylic or Perspex display products looking their best is with a Anti Static Optical Cleaner paired with a Micro Fibre Cleaning Cloth. If your acrylic displays become scratched or marked then we have an easy solution for you, thanks to our Acrylic Scratch Remover. This handy kit consists of remover paste, a polishing cloth and abrasive paper, which gives you the tools you need to buff, polish and wipe clean your acrylic display products to restore them to their original quality.
