It is a rigid plastic with a high degree of transparency. It has a less than half of the density of glass and it has a good impact strength, higher than that of glass.

It can transmits up to 92% of visible light and its great for outdoor applications: all sheets here are added with UV Adsorber for durable colors.

Anyone?
No wise staff from ponoko for clearing this out?

Because I find in the internet so many examples of "Acrylic Food Dispensers" on sale and, of course, they seem to be very food safe, don't they?
