Acrylic

Acrylic awards come in various shapes and sizes with their sparkling beauty enhanced by the acrylic itself.  The image is created by Taylor Made Specialties' unique process which allows for depth and beauty in the finished product.

Our process allows a full-color image and text to be applied to the acrylic resulting 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 availability and styles.

Most acrylic pieces 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 this material easier to work with, and makes it a better choice for projects where weight is an issue. It can also be sawed, whereas glass must be scored.

Virtually all major public aquariums now build display tanks out of this thermoplastic, and it is often used in many other buildings. When this material is just over 1 inch thick (about 25 mm), it is bullet resistant; 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.
