Acrylic, acrylic plastic, plastic acrylic, acrylic definition, acrylic meaning
The term “acrylic” is used for acrylic plastic products that contain a substance derived from acrylic acid or a related compound. Most often, it is used to describe a clear, glass-like plastic known as poly(methyl) methacrylate (PMMA). PMMA, also called acrylic glass, has properties that make it a better choice for many products that might otherwise be made of glass.
Many different products are made from acrylic, including shower doors, bath enclosures, windows, and skylights. It is many times stronger than glass, making it much more impact resistant and therefore safer. Dropping your acrylic drinkware will most likely not break it. It also insulates better than glass, keeping your coffee warmer than your ceramic mug.
Acrylic glass is also very clear, allowing 92% of visible light to pass through it. Very thick glass will have a green tint, while acrylic remains clear. It also weathers well, keeping its clarity over the years without turning yellow or breaking down when exposed to sunlight over a long period of time.
Another advantage of acrylic is that it is only half as heavy as glass.
All of our acrylic drinkware products are BPA free.
