Acrylic, the wonder plastic

Originally used in World War II for airplane windows and canopies, acrylic has evolved to a plethora of new usages. Thanks to its exceptional strength-to-weight ratio, versatility, and weather resistance, acrylic has found success across many industries.

Acrylic is typically about 10 times more resistant to impact than standard glass.
