Properties of Acrylic

Acrylic is sometimes called Perspex or Plexiglass, but they are just one of many brands of acrylic. This particular material has several benefits, including:

  • More affordable than both glass and polycarbonate.

  • Resists yellowing from the sun

  • Better clarity than glass transmitting 92% of light

  • Easier to machine and form

  • Shiny material that can be polished to a smooth finish

  • Has an impact resistance that is 17x that of glass

  • Easy to clean

  • Available in a range of colours

In addition, acrylic is a thermoplastic that is formed and bent using heat. It can have clean glue joints for an improved overall look because glue bonds well with it. If you are looking for an affordable alternative to glass that is significantly stronger, acrylic could be the right fit.

Acrylic is a more rigid material and may be prone to cracking when drilled and chips more easily than polycarbonates.
