Acrylic vs. Glass

Greetings to All!

 

We have been working hard this year on new product developments and acquiring the latest research on materials and manufacturing processes. It has been a little disappointing to see the misinformation that has been introduced into the field by less scrupulous companies. Manufacturers of therapeutic devices massagers are not supposed to make medical claims. This is a red flag, should you run across this type of advertising.

With that being said, we are excited to begin sharing our newest research and positive product developments with you all. We would like to start with providing clarity about the differences between Acrylic and Glass wands. We encourage you to do your own homework as well.

Here is the skinny on Acrylic versus Glass:

Cast Acrylic, also known as plexiglass, is a homogenous material mixed and formed using casts into various products such as aquariums, medical devices, LCD screens, and furniture. Because the ingredients are first mixed and then poured into molds, the substance is uniform with equivalent properties in all directions. For many products Cast Acrylic is a superior alternative to Glass due to its impact resistance. Cast Acrylic is less than half the weight of Glass but many times stronger at the same time. Additionally, Acrylic will never shatter into small, sharp pieces, as Glass does. The nonporous surface makes it easy to clean, but the material should not be exposed to harsh solvents to prevent scratching. Acrylic surfaces are naturally resistant to bacteria and other unsanitary surfaces, and can be easily disinfected with a non-abrasive cleanser. Cast Acrylic is a BPA free and recyclable material.

Because of these differences, our company utilizes Cast Acrylic materials and proudly stands by the quality and integrity of our products.

Be on the lookout - we can’t wait to share more with you about the many exciting developments at TheraWand
