A fine point and maybe superfluous
There are a few differences between acrylic and polycarbonate (Plexiglass and Lexan) Edge treatments, solvent exposure, and bonding need to be specific to each material.
I believe my -7 canopy is plexiglass, don't know if Lexan is used on other models.
I swapped out my hatch glass on a sailboat once from Plexi to Lexan. Definite advantages/disadvantages to each.
