Plexiglass Chemical Resistance Properties (Acrylic) - Plexiglass barriers are not recommended for continuous use. Immediate damage may occur such as severe crazing, cracking, or permeation losses when exposed to chemicals like nitric acid, sulfuric acid, acetone, acetic acid, etc. Bottom-line is - plexiglass should not be used as a barrier in science labs with certain chemical exposures during pandemic!

The newest edition of the Science Educator Journal  is available now for all NSELA members.

The Science Educator is the official journal of NSELA. It is a refereed journal which seeks manuscripts dealing with topics and issues of interest to professionals involved in science education leadership across a variety of roles, institutions and agencies.  The journal serves as a vehicle for the exchange of information on current theory, research and teaching/learning applications.  Articles by both researchers and practitioners are encouraged.  Generally articles are sought that aid researchers and practitioners in making informed decisions to improve science teaching and learning.  Of particular interest are topics that deal with science education reform, science education leadership, preservice and inservice teacher enhancement/professional development, teaching and learning, needs assessment, research and evaluation, and policies and practices.

"Plexiglass Chemical Resistance Properties (Acrylic)" - If your school wants to use plexiglass shields for students' stations or teacher's desks, better think twice! Plexiglass is not recommended for continuous use in labs using certain hazardous chemicals. There is the potential risk of immediate damage occurring such as severe crazing, cracking, or permeation losses. Chemicals include use of Nitric acid, sulfuric acid, acetone, acedic acid, etc. This would especially apply to chemistry labs, tech ed and STEM labs. Check the chart listing which chemicals apply at the noted Internet address. Click here for more information.
