yes, acrylic is plexi, whereas polycarbonate is lexan.
both require a high tooth count, carbide tipped blade in order to cut without chipping the adjascent surface/s,... Best method I've found in cutting either material is to score the surface on both sides first with a max depth of 1/32"-1/16" in order to relieve the edge of "lift" that is inherent with cutting any material when a saw has a downward/upward stroke against the face,... make multiple passes after while increasing depth 1/8"-1/4" for each pass and you should be fine.
also, lexan is 10 times harder than glass, but scratches very easily and is susceptible to discoloration (yellowing) from u/v light
plexi is only 4 times harder than glass, but is much more scratch-resistent than lexan and doesn't discolor.
