What material is acrylic

Acrylic is also called PMMA or Acrylic. It is the Chinese name of English acrylic, which is actually plexiglass in translation. The chemical name is polypropylene methyl ester. It is a major thermoplastic developed earlier, with good transparency, chemical stability and weather resistance, easy to dye, easy, beautiful appearance, and is widely used in the construction industry. Plexiglass products can generally be divided into cast sheets, extruded sheets, and molding compounds.

The functional characteristics of acrylic

1. It has crystal-like transparency, the light transmittance is more than 92%, the light is soft, the vision is clear, and the acrylic colored with dyes has a good color development effect.

Second, the acrylic sheet has excellent weather resistance, high surface hardness and surface gloss, and good high temperature performance.

Third, the acrylic sheet has excellent performance, which can be thermoformed or mechanically.

Fourth, the transparent acrylic sheet has a light transmittance comparable to that of glass, but the density is only half that of glass. In addition, it is not as fragile as glass, and even if damaged, it will not form sharp fragments like glass.

5. The wear resistance of acrylic plate is close to that of aluminum material, with good stability and resistance to various chemicals.

6. Acrylic sheets have excellent printability and sprayability. The appropriate amount of printing and spraying processes can give acrylic products an ideal surface decoration effect.

Areas of use of acrylic

1. Building utilization: shop windows, soundproof doors and windows, lighting covers, telephone booths, etc.

2. Advertising use: light boxes, signboards, instigation cards, display stands, etc.

3. Traffic utilization: trains, other vehicles, doors and windows, etc.

Fourth, learn to use: incubators, various surgical appliances, civilian products: bathroom facilities, handicrafts, cosmetics, brackets, aquariums, etc.
