Plexiglass (acrylic) is a versatile material that has great impact strength yet is light weight. This material offers excellent optical properties and is more resistant
to impact than glass. It also has lower water absorption, good electrical resistivity and fair tensile strength.
Lexan (polycarbonate) is a tougher grade plastic than plexiglass (acrylic). The characteristics of lexan are quite similar to plexiglass, but lexan is stronger and performs
in a wider temperature range and is less likely to yellow after years of sunlight. This material is used for safety glass on window, doors, and enclosure
