[Public-List] Window gasketing

I wasn't aware that butyl could damage acrylic plastic.  Odd, because I 
first heard of it through the Plastic Classic Forum where several 
members have used it on their Triton windows (which are plastic in 
bronze frames).

I guess I will have to re-check that.

It is true that Lexan scratches easier than acrylic.  It's tougher 
overall but more vulnerable to scratching.  You can get tempered 
acrylic, which I think is stronger than regular (but have not 
researched it yet).
