【Outline Description】Acrylic products include acrylic sheets, acrylic plastic pellets, acrylic light boxes, signboards, acrylic bathtubs, acrylic artificial marble, acrylic resins, acrylic (latex) paints and other products. Acrylic products commonly seen by people are acrylic products assembled from raw materials such as acrylic pellets, sheets or resins through various processing methods and with various materials and functional parts. As for the commonly heard acrylic fiber, acrylic cotton, acrylic yarn, acrylic nylon, etc., it refers to the man-made fiber polymerized from acrylic acid and has nothing to do with acrylic products.

Acrylic (ACRYLIC), also known as PMMA or acrylic, acrylic.

The chemical name is polymethyl methacrylate. From the English Organic Glass, it means a PMMA plate made of MMA of an organic compound, its transparency and light transmittance are like glass. Acrylic is an important thermoplastic that was developed earlier.

PMMA is a polymer obtained by the polymerization of acrylic acid and its esters, collectively referred to as acrylic resins, and the corresponding plastics are collectively referred to as polyacrylic plastics, among which poly(methyl methacrylate) is widely used. The abbreviation code of polymethyl methacrylate is PMMA, commonly known as plexiglass, which is the best synthetic transparent material so far.

PMMA has the advantages of light weight, low price and easy molding. Its molding methods include casting, injection molding, machining, thermoforming, etc. In particular, injection molding can be mass-produced, with simple process and low cost. Therefore, its application is becoming more and more extensive, and it is widely used in instrumentation parts, automobile lights, optical lenses, transparent pipes, etc.
