Acrylic sheet (sometimes called “acrylic glass”) is a well known plastic with countless applications for the “DIY” community. Everything from cold frames, to decorations, window replacements or even laser-etched business cards (look them up!). Acrylic offers several advantages other plastics, particularly see-through plastics, do not have. Acrylic’s main competitor in the world of plastics is Polycarbonate. Polycarbonate has higher impact strength than acrylic and should be selected when that is the main concern. Otherwise, acrylic will be slightly (about 15%) less expensive, have superior UV and weathering resistance and be much more scratch resistant: which is a major concern with polycarbonate.

Recently we stumbled across a website called www.instructables.com which has an index for all sorts of really neat acrylic projects to get your creative juices flowing! You can find these projects here: http://www.instructables.com/id/Projects-with-Acrylic/
