Polycarbonate vs Acrylic

Polycarbonate (Lexan) vs Acrylic (Plexiglas)

Sheet grade polycarbonate (aka Lexan or Makrolon) and acrylic sheet (aka Plexiglas) are two of the most frequently used see-through plastics. The two are easy for some people to mix-up since because both polycarb and Plex begin with the letter P.
Each of the two have benefits and drawbacks. Acrylic is shinier and polycarb is stronger. Acrylic is less expensive but easier to crack. Polycarb is more impact resisant but easier to scratch. They are both stronger and lighter than untempered glass; acrylic is 4x to 8x stronger than glass, while polycarb is about 200x stronger.
