The Thickness of The Acrylic Sheet Determines The Quality

Although it has little effect on the price of the display case, the thickness of the acrylic material is an important indicator of the quality and function of the display case. Here's a good rule of thumb: "The thicker the material, the higher the quality."

For customers, this means they are using a more durable, stronger acrylic display case. Like all products on the market, the higher the quality, the more expensive it is to buy. Be aware that there are companies in the market that don't easily advertise the thickness of their products, and may offer you thinner materials at slightly better prices.

Acrylic Sheet Thickness Depends on Application
