What is acrylic?Acrylic, also known as Plexiglass, is a versatile plastic material with a variety of purposes and benefits, available in a spectrum of colors and opacities. Acrylic plastic was first produced in 1929 and brought to the market by Rohm and Hass Company around 1933. It was initially used during World War II for products such as airplane windows, canopies and turrets. Acrylate polymers are what we call plastics. They have noted transparency, resistance to breakage, elasticity, etc. The most common type among these polymers is polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA). Therefore, we call this polymer as “acrylic” or by its trade name “Lucite”.
What is the difference between acrylic, Plexiglas, Lucite, Perspex and Lexan?In short there is no real difference. Lucite and Plexiglass, etc. are the tradenames for polymethyl methacrylate whereas acrylic is the general chemical name of polymethyl methacrylate.
Is acrylic toxic?No. Acrylic is a “BPA-Free” substitute for Polycarbonate (PC) that is simply not toxic in solid form.
How do I clean and care for my acrylic products?Avoid ammonia-based products, like Windex or other home glass cleaners, because they contain harmful chemicals that will actually damage the surface leaving it cloudy looking. Soapy water is the safest and most effective cleaning solution for acrylic. You can also look for cleaning solutions made especially for plastic, like Brillianize, and wipe with soft microfiber cloths.
