Acylic or Plexiglass® and Perspex® as it is widely known in Australia is typically used for display items as it is more easily adaptable for certain applications. Acrylic , Acylic or Plexiglass® and Perspex® is not as easy to scratch as polycarbonate, and in Clear is actually clearer than glass.
Acylic or Plexiglass® and Perspex® is much easier to form than glass as well as being lighter. With acrylic , Acylic or Plexiglass® and Perspex® being more suited to bending, moulding and glueing than glass, the overall cost of the acrylic , Plexiglass TM and Perspex TMis not only a cheaper option to glass, but is much safer.

10 – 17 times greater impact than glass. Acrylic is often used in glazing applications as well as
screening (wind breaks). It is recommended to seek advice from your local council as to requirements
It may also be neccessary to employ an architect and or an engineer for relevant thickness and fixing
requirements of the perspex. acrylic , Plexiglass TM and Perspex TM is quite often used in double glazing and sound barrier applications
Polycarbonate is used in machine guarding , glazing , for industrial purposes and in areas where high impact may occur. (again (as for perspex ), it is advised to seek advise from relevant authorities. Our company is proud to offer the premium Lexan brand of polycarbonates to our clients
