To compare scratch resistance, acrylic is less resistant to scratches, but the scratches may be erased if it is polished correctly. Unlike other types of glass, lead glass is very robust and scratch-resistant.
Flame and chemical resistance is another issue to consider when assessing durability. Toxic vapors may be released if lead acrylic is exposed to flames, although lead glass does not burn when exposed. Lead glass, particularly laminated safety glass, is more chemically resistant than lead acrylic.
Lead glass and lead acrylic are good options for shielding against ionizing radiation. Glass or acrylic that is of high quality provides great transparent shielding. It may be utilized in barriers, windows, doors, and medicinal isotope vials.
