Differences in Material

The first thing to know about material differences is that “Clear Acrylic” and “Clear Styrene” is not the same thing and should not be interchangeable. Be aware, many companies may not advertise the type of material. This should be a red flag in the consumer’s minds. It would be to your advantage that you request samples from other companies to ensure you are receiving the same quality product you are requesting (Be aware, many companies will say "Acrylic" when in actuality they are providing you with "Styrene").

It is difficult to visually tell the difference between styrene and acrylic products although their properties and price points are quite different.
The following is a brief list of the major differences and what it means to you as the consumer.
