What is the difference between polycarbonate and acrylic?

This is one of the most popular and most important questions surrounding the purchase of your new windshield. There are really two schools of thought, but let’s start with these facts.

• Acrylic is 17 times more impact resistance than glass.

• Polycarbonate has a 30 times higher impact resistance than acrylic.

Whereas acrylic is 17 times more impact resistance than glass, a much better material to be used in a motorcycle windshield application is polycarbonate like F4 utilizes which is 30 times stronger than acrylic.

I had one of your shields on my first Slingshot. Couldn't have made a better investment. If I pick up a new Slingshot, I'll be ordering another one of your shields.
