Acrylic material is a high quality, crystal clear, durable upgrade from styrene plexiglass. It has a harder surface than most other plastics, but is still a bit softer than glass. Acrylic is scratch resistant but not scratch proof so you should take special care when handling or cleaning. Our .090" thick acrylic sheeting arrives covered in a protective blue wrapping. This blue wrap must be peeled off both sides of the acrylic to properly display your framed piece.
