How do you cut Perspex without cracking it?
Working with Perspex can come with its challenges, but it does not have to be as intimidating as it seems. To make sure that your Perspex does not crack or shatter, scoring is the best technique for cutting. Score the surface of the Perspex with a utility knife before snapping the material along a straight edge – this helps to prevent unwanted splintering.
When drilling into Perspex, use a 3-4mm pilot hole first and then use a slower drill speed followed by a wire running at half speed. Keep your tools sharp to reduce any drooping of the edges that may occur when making holes in the material. With these steps in mind, you can confidently work with Perspex without worrying about cracking it.
That said, sometimes the best way to get Perspex sheets cut to size is to go with an expert!
What is the difference between plexiglass and Perspex?
To put it simply, both plexiglass and Perspex are made polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), also known as clear acrylic – so they’re essentially the same thing. Plexiglass is made from PMMA and Perspex is an acrylic sheet specifically manufactured by the company Invista.
