Acrylic is a lightweight, tough plastic
Color is transparent clear
Meets UL 94HB specifications
The transparent clear acrylic sheet has a standard tolerance and meets Underwriters Laboratories UL 94HB specifications. 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.

I bought this acrylic sheet (sold by Amazon LLC) to protect the wall behind my dog's crate from my dog's chewing. I'm by no means a experience buyer/user of acrylic sheets, but it was a bit thinner than I thought. Irregardless, it did the job I wanted. No more wall destruction. My only complaint is more with the packaging and shipping. This acrylic sheet was shipped with just the protective film and a giant plastic envelope ..... and arrived cracked and with some corner pieces broken. Although this is not the product's fault (and is whomever shipped it out of the Amazon wearhouse), this is something maybe to keep in mind if a cracked/broken edge will ruin your project. It didn't matter for me, so I didn't call Amazon fussing about it.
I purchased this to make a screen protector for my NEW LED TV, since I found out the hard way how fragile they are. The sheet came well packaged and undamaged so we're off to a good start. It was easy to score and break to the size I needed and is crystal clear! Mounted easily to my TV using velcro and is pretty much invisible. If you are doing this, I recommend using an anti-static spray before installing it, as pulling the protective covering off makes it a dust magnet. A lot cheaper than buying a pre-made screen protector and highly recommended for those who have kids and LED/LCD/Plasma TVs. I did not measure the thickness of it, so I'm assuming it's correct and for my application a mm or two was pretty much a non issue, though it was not square. Since I was cutting it to a smaller size, this was not an issue, though if you are purchasing it to fit as is it would be. I would order it a bit larger than needed and that way if there are flaws on the edges or it's not cut...
Came exactly the right size and without any scratches. Crystal clear. Note: if you're using this as I did (for an aquarium lid) it is a bit thin. I cut it to about 8" x 9" and it bends over time under its own weight and the condensation that builds on it. This is easily fixed by flipping it over each week when I clean the tank & lid.
