- story by MaterialDistrict
See-thru Acrylic Mirror, also known as a two-way mirror acts as a mirror on the illuminated side and from the darkened side its transparent. See-thru Acrylic Mirror is made from Plaskolite’s Optix acrylic sheet using a vacuum metallization process to deposit a semi-transparent aluminium film.
Acrylic mirror sheets can be saw cut, router cut, or laser cut. Mirrored acrylic can also be cold bent for curved shapes or strip heated for a sharp bend.
Acrylic Mirror sheets have approximately 85-90% reflectivity over the visible light spectrum. Compared to glass of the same thickness, the weight is less than half, and it is 10 times more fracture resistant and 17 times more impact resistant.
See-thru Acrylic Mirror is provided with a protective film which is also laser cuttable. This product is available in both acrylic material or polycarbonate. Panels are 5 – 80 inches wide, 10 – 120 inches long, and .060 – .236 inches thick.
See-thru Acrylic Mirror will react upon exposure to many chemicals, and the mirror products are not recommended for exterior use when not sealed.
