HOW DOES ACRYLIC (STRENGTH-WISE) COMPARE TO GLASS?
A .125″ thickness of acrylic is 2 to 3 times more impact resistant than double strength window glass, 4 to 5 times more impact resistant than wire glass or other glasses. A .250″ thickness of acrylic is 9 to 10 times more impact resistant than wire or other glasses.
HOW DOES ACRYLIC COMPARE TO OTHER PLASTICS IN STRENGTH?
Polycarbonate is strongest, followed by PETG/PET, impact modified acrylic sheet, then general-purpose acrylic sheet.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF ACRYLIC OVER GLASS?
Acrylic is stronger, more impact resistant, lighter in weight, won’t shatter, is easier to fabricate, and can be easily formed.
IS STANDARD ACRYLIC NON-CONDUCTIVE?
No, standard acrylic is a conductive material. A spray coating is available if non-conductivity is needed.
