Acrylic, also known as PMMA or plexiglass, is derived from English acrylic (acrylic plastic) and its chemical name is polymethyl methacrylate.
It is an important plastic polymer material developed earlier. It has good transparency, chemical stability and weather resistance, easy dyeing, easy processing and beautiful appearance. It is widely used in the construction industry. Plexiglass products are generally classified into cast sheets, extruded sheets, and molding compounds.
Acrylic products include acrylic sheets, acrylic plastic pellets, acrylic light boxes, signboards, acrylic bathtubs, acrylic artificial marble, acrylic resin, acrylic (latex) paint, acrylic adhesives, etc., and a wide variety.
Acrylic products commonly used are made of acrylic pellets, plates or resins and other raw materials, and assembled with various materials and functional parts. Acrylic fiber, acrylic cotton, acrylic yarn, acrylic nylon, etc., which are commonly heard, are man-made fibers polymerized from acrylic acid and are not related to acrylic products.
Among them, the acrylic sheet is often referred to as polymethyl methacrylate Polymeric Methyl Methacrylate (PMMA) sheet, which is polymerized by "methyl methacrylate monomer (Methyl Methacrylate (MMA)". Or extruded from acrylic pellets through a extruder. In the past, the plate was commonly called plexiglass. Acrylic is derived from English acrylic, meaning PMMA board made of organic compound MMA, which has transparency and transparency like glass. Plates derived from all transparent plastics such as PS, PC, etc. or made of inferior recycled MMA are collectively referred to as plexiglass. In order to distinguish, the PMMA board made of high-quality pure material MMA is named as acrylic sheet to distinguish it from the general plexiglass board.
