 Laser cutting machine for acrylic


2.What is the difference between acrylic, Plexiglas, Lucite, Perspex, and Lexan or clear plastic?
  A:Acrylic (polyacrylate) is marketed under many trade names including Plexiglas, Lucite, Perspex, Policril, Gavrieli, Vitroflex, Limacryl, R-Cast, Per-Clax, Plazcryl, Acrylex, Acrylite, Acrylplast, Altuglas, Polycast, Oroglass, Optix.

These differ from Lexan which is polycarbonate, and is sometimes used as bullet-proof glass. Although it is more shatter-resistant, it is more expensive than acrylic, yellows with prolonged exposure to sunlight, and is much more easily scratched. Therefore acrylic is more ideal for most interior and exterior design purposes.

3.Should I keep acrylic out of the sun?
 No, sunlight will not affect your acrylic items. All plastics come from petroleum and natural gas. Sunlight, especially ultraviolet radiation, has a disastrous effect on most plastics. This is why many childrens toys become brittle and crack when left outside. Acrylic is derived from natural gas and is completely inert in its solid form and will NOT yellow in the sunlight.

Clear plastic can refer to a wide range of synthetic compounds, with varying strengths, melting points, and other properties.

4. How do I clean acrylic?
Acrylic care consists of no more than normal wipe-cleaning to keep it looking new. Chemicals should never be used, and care should be taken to avoid scratches.
