What is acrylic?

Acrylic is a generic term to refer to the transparent thermoplastic polymethyl-methacrylate (PMMA). It is often used interchangeably with the trademarked terms Plexiglas® and Lucite®. One of the main advantages of acrylic is it's remarkable transparency, which actually transmits more light than glass. Furthermore, it is more shatter resistant and lighter than glass. Another advantage of acrylic products is that they are completely BPA-free, unlike some other plastics such as polycarbonate.

Is there a difference between acrylic and plastic?

In recent years, many manufacturers and retailers have begun to use the term acrylic as a generic catch-all for all clear plastics. Unfortunately, this has led to much confusion and deception in the marketplace, where inferior and less expensive plastics (such as SAN, poly-styrene, mono-styrene, and others) are being labeled and sold as acrylic. While these other materials have their own positive characteristics, none of them can claim the same optical clarity, feel, and longevity of acrylic.
