Can you cut Splashbacks?
Moreover, can you cut toughened glass splashbacks?
Yes and no. While DIY Splashbacks only sell toughened glass splashbacks (along with many other splashback materials), once they have been toughened they cannot be cut. Glass is toughened by superheating it to over 400C in a furnace/toughening plant, this is also why they are so heat resistant.
Secondly, what can you use for a splashback? Typically, the first material that comes to mind for a splashback is tiles. They can be cost-effective, easy to install and easy to clean.
- Tinted mirror.
- Butterfly-effect marble.
- Pressed metal.
- Exposed brick.
Keeping this in consideration, can you put acrylic splashback behind hob?
Acrylic splashbacks can go behind hobs but a safe distance must be kept. The distance between the outer edge of a ceramic hob and the wall must be at least 60mm.
Are acrylic splashbacks any good?
Acrylic Splashbacks are extremely tough and virtually impact resistant so they are able to withstand the daily knocks and bumps that happen in every kitchen, although they can scratch. Cleaned with a simple warm water and soap solution, acrylic Splashbacks do not attract dust and therefore remain cleaner for longer.
