RIGID PLASTIC SHEETING

Description: This comes in two sizes: 2 by 3 feet, and 38 by 42 inches. It is clear and 3/32 inch thick.

Buying information: It is used for storm doors. It can be scratched and may turn cloudy as it ages, but it is a lot less costly than tempered glass.

How-to hints: Rigid plastic must be cut with a toothed carbide tool. Scribe the material at least six times, then place the core mark over a broom handle or dowel and press down on a few inches of the line near one end. When this cracks, press down a few inches farther along, gradually "walking" the crack up until the plastic is severed.

The plastic can be secured in the frame with a bead of acrylic adhesive.
