The term “acrylic” is used for products that contain a substance derived from acrylic acid or a related compound. Most often, it is used to describe a clear, glass-like plastic known as poly(methyl) methacrylate (PMMA) that can be moulded into a variety of forms. Acrylic allows as much as 92% of visible light to pass through it. Very thick Acrylic will have a green tint, while acrylic remains clear. It is many times stronger than glass, making it much more impact resistant and therefore safer. 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 children to handle. There are some misconceptions about acrylic, namely that it yellows, turns brittle, and cracks over time. Though this might be true of cheap forms of plastic, it is not so with acrylic. If taken care of, this material can remain new looking for several decades, regardless of age or exposure to sun. Because of its unique properties, it is a better choice for many products that might otherwise be made of glass. Thus an acrylic trophy is a budget friendly and cheaper alternative to the traditional glass trophy or crystal trophy. Acrylic trophies can be manufactured in a variety of shapes, colors and sizes. The most common styles are clear rectangular “Billboards”, star shapes, circles, and pyramids. These are often engraved with corporate logos and personalized with the name of the recipient. They are also used in awards ceremonies for many organizations. It can be custom make to corporations’ specification that shaped like their products to give as a promotional item.
