Italian term or phrase: perspex
Qualcuno conosce questo tipo di materiale? Se ne parla in un testo che dice di un artista che usa plastica, plexiglas e questo "perspex".
Dovrei tradurlo in inglese. Sarà uguale? Su Internet non ho trovato niente!

agree  Maureen Young: Yes, but perspex is often used in Italian to generically mean 'acrylic', the way we say Kleenex to mean facial tissues in general.
