ACRYLIC

Our process allows for a full-color image and text to be added to acrylic resulting in sparkling clarity. The acrylic is available in various sizes and shapes suitable for any club or corporate recognition program.  Check the Awards Catalog on this web site for the latest in size and style availability.

Most acrylic in the styles pictured are approximately one-inch in thickness providing exceptional clarity and beauty.  These are a beautiful award and we've received rave reviews about them.

Many different products are made of acrylic, including shower doors, bath enclosures, windows, and skylights.  It is many times stronger than glass, making it more impact resistant and therefore safer.

Acrylic glass is also very clear, allowing 92% of visible light to pass through it. Very thick glass will have a green tint, while acrylic remains clear.  It also weathers well, keeping its clarity over the years without turning yellow or breaking down when exposed to sunlight over a long period of time.

Another advantage of acrylic is that it is only half as heavy as glass.  This makes the material easier to work with, and it makes it a better choice for projects where weight can issue.  It can also be sawed, whereas glass must be scored.

Virtually all major public aquariums now build display tanks that consist of this thermoplastic, and it is often used in many other buildings.  When this material is just over one-inch thick (about 25 mm), it is even bullet resistant.  In fact, the presidential motorcade, the pope's booth-vehicle, teller enclosures, and drive-through window enclosures all feature bullet-resistant acrylic.  It is used for airplane windows as well.  Though it isn't cheap, it still remains as a wonderful award of sparkling beauty for years to come.
