Acrylic is a type of plastic that is often used in place of glass

Acrylic is a type of plastic that is often used in place of glass. It offers several benefits, including high impact resistance and a durable, weather-resistant finish. You can find a wide variety of acrylic sheeting in a range of colors and thicknesses.
For outdoor use, polymethyl methacrylate is a good choice, as it offers excellent optical clarity. It can be thermoformed to fit a variety of shapes.
Acrylic sheets can also be painted to match the color of your design. The coating can improve solar reflectiveness and anti-fogging properties. In addition to these features, acrylic sheeting has excellent resistance to abrasion and UV damage.
Clear Acrylic Sheets are also available in a variety of sizes. Customers can choose from 4 inches to 12 1/2 feet of material in either a glossy or matte finish. These sheets are backed by a limited 10-year warranty.
Extruded acrylic is a cost-effective, durable material that offers a clear view. Compared to cast acrylic, extruded sheeting has better moisture and ultraviolet light resistance, making it ideal for greenhouse glazing.
Plexiglass, a type of clear acrylic sheet, is also a popular choice. This is a strong, impact-resistant material that is easy to fabricate. While the material is similar to acrylic, plexiglass is easier to handle and less likely to break. Unlike glass, plexiglass tends to weigh a fraction of what a comparable sized glass panel would.
Colored acrylic is a popular choice, especially for projects that require aesthetics or durability. Available in twenty different hues, you can pick from a rainbow of options to achieve the perfect look.
