Hi All,

I was just wondering if anyone knows what the difference is between acrylic and plexiglass.

There seems to be a difference of opinion on the internet.

1. The biggest difference is in their ductility, acrylic is "softer" than plexiglass and more forgiving under stress.

2.They are the same thing. Plexiglass is just a trade name. In other words, it's just what they call it.

Whose correct?

Also, why isn't plexiglass or acrylic depending if there different used for windows in place of glass.
