Acrylic, Lexan, Plexiglass, Polycarbonate and Plastic
Do You Know The Difference?
Most of you will answer “No”, some of you may answer “Yes”, or think they are different names for the same product.
You will be surprised to know that they are actually, different.
Let’s Break It Down.
- Lexan: Is a brand name of polycarbonate, which is a transparent plastic of high impact strength.
- Polycarbonate: Synthetic resin in which the polymers units are linked through carbonate groups, including many molding materials and films.
- Plexiglass: A brand name of acrylic and is sold under many different names, such as Acrylite, Lucite and Perspex.
- Plastic: Is a generic term for a large group of semi-synthetic materials, consisting mainly of one or more polymer mixed with additives.
In this blog we will focus on acrylic.
Acrylic: A synthetic resin & textile fibers made from polymers of acrylic acid or acrylates.
The benefits of Acrylic are many:
- Impact Resistant.
- Lighter and 4 – 8 times stronger than untampered glass of equal thickness.
- Brilliance, Clarity and Transparency.
- Weatherability; Stands up to the elements longer than other plastics.
- Easy to Clean; No Special Cleaners Needed. Just Soap and Water.

What To Expect When Ordering A Custom Designed Quality Pulpit or Communion Table 0
Custom and Quality
What do you think of when you hear the words “Custom and “Quality”? Do you think they are synonymous with each other?
According to Webster’s American Dictionary, the meaning of the word “Custom” is; Adj. 1. Made or done to order. 2. Making this to order.
The meaning of the word “Quality” is; 3. The degree of excellence which something possesses (ex: a high quality of paper). 4. Excellence or superiority (ex: to look for quality in a product).
With our many custom items, you can choose from options like;
- Stain Color
- Fabric Color
- Cross Option
- Symbol Options
- Acrylic Option
- Glass Option
- Wood Choice
In choosing the options, you are creating an item that is uniquely yours.
As with all custom pieces, it takes time to produce a quality product, that is made in the USA and that we are proud to put our name on.
Once your order is placed we start the process of building your unique item, with quality materials. Our craftsman cut the material, glue and screw the pieces together to form the pulpit, communion table, chairs, etc. Then sand, stain, steel wool (this process is repeated several times), drying time for stain, polyurethane, drying time for polyurethane, for chairs the upholstery is done, clean, crate or box and ship the product to you.
During your planning process, keep in mind that the approximate lead time is 6 - 8 weeks from receipt of order. Lead times can be subject to change without notice due to the production schedule. Also, all custom built orders cannot be canceled or returned.
