Radiant Specialty

Information Specific to This Colour

  • This material is made from sheets of transparent black acrylic with an iridescent film applied to the front. The effect is a semi-transparent acrylic that looks different colours depending on the light it catches. It’s quite magical!
  • IMPORTANT: This material arrives to us with an increasing amount of small (1-3mm) ‘bubbles’ over the surface. This is due to how the effect is made (it is a film applied to acrylic); it’s like when you apply clear contact to a book and some bubbles appear. This trait is typical of this material (and not something we consider a fault).
  • Apart from the contact issues, the finish is otherwise high gloss on the front and back. The iridescent film in on the front. From the sides, the material looks clear.

Description

  • Specialty acrylics are a variety of different types of acrylic sheets that don't quite fit into our other categories.
  • They are typically all made differently, such as varied mixes or 'ingredients' (like fabric pieces, glitter shards, and glow in the dark).

The Specs

  • Maximum usable area: 595mm x 295mm.
  • Maximum sheet size: Approx. 600mm x 300mm.
  • Thickness: 3mm (± 10%).
  • Finish: As described above.

Recommended Uses

  • Specialty acrylics really fit into anyway that you can envision them! They're quite varied and lend themselves to a variety of different designs and styles.
  • These materials can be a little tricky to order, so if you need something for longevity (such as you're planning a design that will stay in manufacture for 1-2 years), this range may not be the most suitable long term option.

More Information

  • Cuts well and leaves a clean, smooth edge line that typically shows the core colour on the sides.
  • Engraves well and can hold fine details.
  • Comes with a protective tape coating that will need to be peeled off.
  • It is difficult to capture colour correctly; allow for slight variation from monitor to reality.
