Acrylic is a lightweight, tough plastic
Color is transparent clear
The transparent clear acrylic sheet has a standard tolerance. Acrylic is a lightweight, tough plastic that offers transparency similar to that of glass.
Plastic refers to a group of synthetic or semi-synthetic materials that have been engineered to achieve specific properties. The most notable characteristics of plastics are its low weight, machinability, corrosion resistance, and typically good thermal and electrical insulating properties. Certain plastic grades also offer optical transparency similar to glass, low-friction or self-lubricating surfaces, and exceptional impact resistance. Depending on their properties, certain plastic grades can be used as alternatives to metal, glass, and ceramic. Unlike metal, plastic may experience creep, which is deformation caused by longtime exposure to a constant load.
Tensile strength, used to indicate the material’s overall strength, is the peak stress it can withstand before it breaks. Corrosion resistance describes the material's ability to prevent deterioration caused by atmosphere, moisture, or other medium. Wear resistance indicates the ability to prevent surface damage caused by contact with other surfaces. Toughness describes the material's ability to absorb energy before breaking, while hardness (commonly measured as indentation hardness) describes its resistance to permanent surface deformation. Impact resistance is the measure of a material’s ability to absorb a shock of energy before breaking.

The product specifications list the width and length tolerances as -0.06 inches, which is basically 1/16th of an inch. The sheet was exactly 1/8th of an inch short in each direction. Twice as much as the tolerance says it should be.
Other than being short, the quality and everything looks good.
This acrylic sheet is definitely clear and definitely acrylic. The problem, however, is that it's a little too clear, so I keep walking into it all the time. What's worse is that I can't find it when I'm looking for it, so I'll just be walking around the house and *bam* walk into a sheet of acrylic. Annoying, but definitely what was advertised!
Thankfully the seller used protective film and solid cardboard to ship this piece of thin acrylic in. The acrylic is what it is, a see thru piece of plastic, what more can you expect from it? I used it to add a custom window cut-out to a computer case. I didn't care for the design of my current window on the case and wanted more visibility inside the case, this did the job very well.
3M makes a double sided tape that is fantastic for this type of application as well. Use a good jig saw, a very sharp multi-teeth blade, the 3M tape or a hot glue, and you can create a one-of-kind creation on your very own computer case. Throw in some LED's and show off that expensive hardware that hardly anyone ever gets to see.
I would definitely buy from this seller again and would use this type of acrylic again also.
