Differences Between Plexiglass, Perspex and Acrylic Glass Finally Explained
Our clients sometimes ask us questions such as the difference between acrylic, plexiglass and perspex and whether plexiglass is better than acrylic or perspex. The short answer to all these questions is that there are no significant differences between acrylic, plexiglass and perspex, as they all mean the same thing.
The simple explanation is that PLEXIGLAS®, CRYLON® and PERSPEX® are all brand names for an acrylic glass, produced by different manufacturers and are similar or nearly identical in properties and applications. While the brands PERSPEX® and CRYLON® are more prevalent in the United Kingdom and Europe, PLEXIGLAS® is more commonly used in the United States.
