Samples Request

Perspex samples

At theplasticshop.co.uk we know that it's nice to get touchy-feely with materials before you're sure it's what you want.

That's why we'd be pleased to send a sample pack of materials for you to evaluate before you place an order.

We can send a maximum of 3 samples per pack for which we make a small administration charge of £5.00

This charge is fully refundable if you subsequently place an order for one of the sampled materials. We will send a voucher code with your samples, which can be used when you checkout on your next visit*

Sample packs normally take a couple of days to be prepare, we send them via Royal Mail 1st Class post, so you should expect to receive them within 3/5 working days - if you need them urgently, please call us and let us know.

  • Acrylic mirror sheet samples are 150mm x 75mm and are available in 3mm or 6mm thick.
  • Perspex samples and other sheet samples are normally sized at approximately 50mm x 50mm and available in 3mm only - unless specified
    (Larger evaluation pieces of sheet can be purchased normally > choose custom dimensions on product pages or look at our clearance stock)
  • Coloured acrylic rod samples are 6.4mm diameter x approx 30mm long.
  • All other rod samples are normally 20mm diameter x approx 30mm long.
  • Acrylic square bar samples are 10mm x 10mm in clear. To evaluate square bar colours select the corresponding round rod sample.
  • Acrylic tube samples are: 40mm OD x 34 ID x 30mm long in Cast and 20mm OD x 14mm ID x 30mm long in Extruded.
  • Polycarbonate tube samples are 15mm OD x 11mm ID x 30mm long.

If the sample you require is not listed, or if you have non-standard or very specific sample requirements (eg sample of 50mm dia nylon rod) please email us so that we can advise you if we need to make an additional charge.

Please note, samples listed on this page are subject to availability. All sizes quoted are approximates only. In the unlikely event we are out of stock of a particular item, we reserve the right to substitute your request with closest stock alternative. We also reserve the right to reject multiple sample orders. Voucher is valid for 6 months from date of receipt.
