What are high gloss acrylic walls and where are they used? – High gloss acrylic wall panels are 5/32” thick, have a high gloss mirrored finish (much like back painted glass) with an integrated fused color layer. This material is coated with a micro-hard coat outer layer for scratch resistance and comes in a variety of sizes (including 39” x 96” x 60” x 72”, 36” x 60” and 42” x 60”). They are used most frequently in kitchen backsplashes and tub and shower wall surrounds.
