Acrylic Protective Barrier Description
Acrylic, also known as Plexiglass, Lucite, or Perspex, Acrylite, and Optix is a versatile plastic material with a variety of purposes and benefits, available in a spectrum of colors and opacities. Acrylic plastic was first produced in 1928 and brought to the market by Rohm and Haas Company around 1933. It was initially used during World War II for products such as airplane windows, canopies, and turrets.
Acrylic is an extremely durable material that is 10x times stronger than glass. Because of its resistance to high pressure and impact. As well as its incredible resistance to weather and temperature, acrylic is a great alternative to glass.

Acrylic is simple to clean and polish using a clean cloth and cleaning compounds. It is possible to remove light scratches from acrylic with special abrasive compounds. Here at Plastic-Craft we sell a number of cleaners and polishers such as the Novus polishing kit, that can keep your acrylic looking like new for years to come.
Light transmission is the technical term for transparency to light. Clear Acrylic has a 92 percent light transmittance rate — one of the highest light transmission rates possible. Most acrylic plastics will allow light of wavelength greater than 375 nm to pass through the material, but they will not allow UV-C wavelengths (100–290 nm) to pass through. Even very thin acrylic sheets of less than 5 millimeters (mm) do not let UV-C light penetrate.

Sanitizing Acrylic, Polycarbonate, and PETG Sheets
Acrylic, polycarbonate, and PETG sneeze guards, as well as like products, require special care while cleaning and disinfecting. To maintain the optical clarity of sneeze guards and other acrylic, polycarbonate, or PETG items, use a plastic safe cleaner like Novus Plastic Polish #1 or a mild soap solution. Apply cleaners with a microfiber towel to prevent damage as other towels and fabrics may scratch the material.
Please reference the following compatible cleans when disinfecting acrylic, polycarbonate and PETG items.
NOTE: The use of commonly available commercial alcohol or ammonia-based disinfectants may cause crazing and damage.
