Why is acrylic more expensive than glass?
Plexiglass vs Acrylic: What’s the Difference?
After the reaction has completed and the acrylic has cured, the glass is separated from the acrylic and the acrylic sheet is inspected. Because the process is more time and labor extensive, cell cast acrylic tends to be more expensive, but is typically higher quality and more durable.
How long does acrylic glass last?

Does acrylic break like glass?
Safety and Strength
Acrylic plastic sheets have 17 times the impact strength of glass, meaning, it takes a lot more force to shatter acrylic than glass. When you use acrylic sheeting as your window panes, you no longer need to worry about someone getting injured if a pane is to break.
