When you say "Plexiglas" you are just referring to clear plastic panels, not specifically the acrylic plexiglass brand I hope.

Plexiglass is brittle, and only good to about 170* F
Lexan is tough, light, and impact resistant., but only good to 180* F

McMaster-Carr website gives the material properties for most popular plastics, softening temperature and such.
