What is Acrylic?

What is Acrylic?

Acrylic, also known as specially treated plexiglass, is a new generation of plexiglass. The light box made of acrylic has good light transmission performance, pure color, rich color, beautiful and smooth, taking into account the two effects of day and night, long service life, does not affect the use, etc. Features. In addition, Acrylic Sheet and aluminum-plastic panel profiles, advanced screen printing, etc. can be perfectly combined to meet the needs of businesses. Acrylic blister is the best form of outdoor advertising to improve the level of business stores and unify the corporate image. "Acrylic" is a transliterated word, English is ACRYLIC. It is a chemical material. The chemical name is "PMMA", which is a polyacrylate, commonly known as "specially processed plexiglass". Acrylic raw materials in the application industry generally appear in the form of particles, plates, and pipes. Acrylic is a transliteration of English Acrylic, a generic term for Acrylic acrylic and methacrylic chemicals. Including monomers, plates, pellets, resins and composite materials, acrylic plates are polymerized by methyl methacrylate monomer (MMA), namely polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) plate plexiglass, "organic glass" Derived from the trade name "Oroglas" (a type of PMMA board), taken from "Organic Glass" (also known as organic glass).

Acrylic (ACRYLIC), common name special processing plexiglass. Acrylic research and development has a history of more than 100 years. The polymerizability of acrylic acid was discovered in 1872; the polymerizability of methacrylic acid was known in 1880; the synthesis method of propylene polypropionate was completed in 1901; the industrial synthesis was attempted using the aforementioned synthesis method in 1927; the methyl acid ester industry in 1937 Successful manufacturing development, thus entering large-scale manufacturing. Acrylic had excellent toughness and light transmission during World War II. First, it was applied to the windshield of the aircraft and the sight glass of the tank driver's cab. The birth of the world's first acrylic bathtub in 1948 marks a new milestone in the application of acrylic

1. Excellent transparency
Colorless transparent plexiglass sheet with light transmittance above 92%
2. Excellent weather resistance
It has a strong adaptability to the natural environment. Even if it is exposed to sunlight and wind and rain for a long time, its performance will not be changed. It has good anti-aging performance and can be used safely outdoors.
3. Good processing performance
Suitable for both machining and thermoforming
4. Excellent comprehensive performance
Acrylic board has many varieties, rich colors, and extremely excellent comprehensive performance, providing designers with a variety of choices. Acrylic board can be dyed, and the surface can be painted, screen printed, or vacuum coated
5. Non-toxic, it is harmless even if it is in contact with people for a long time, but formaldehyde and carbon monoxide will be produced when the combustion is incomplete
6. The linear expansion coefficient of the casting plate is about 7x10-5m / m.K.
Acrylic has the reputation of "plastic crystal". And has excellent weather resistance, especially for outdoor use, ranking other plastic crowns, and has good surface hardness and gloss, processing plasticity, can be made into various shapes and products. In addition, there are many kinds of plates with rich colors (including translucent color plates). Another feature is that thick plates can still maintain high transparency.

Acrylic Product
Acrylic can be made into products with special decoration and unique decoration effects through various processing techniques.
Process: composite process, pouring process, hot melt process, laser process, engraving process, injection molding process, extrusion process.

Acrylic Application

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

Acrylic is the best new material that can manufacture sanitary ware after ceramics. Compared with traditional ceramic materials, in addition to unparalleled high brightness, acrylic has the following advantages: good toughness, not easy to break; strong repairability, as long as you use soft foam dipped in toothpaste to wipe the sanitary ware; soft texture, winter There is no sense of cold and biting; colorful, can meet the personality pursuit of different tastes. The use of acrylic to make washbasins, bathtubs, and toilets is not only exquisite in style, durable, but also environmentally friendly. Its radiation is almost the same as that of the human body's own bones. Acrylic sanitary ware first appeared in the United States and has occupied more than 70% of the entire international market.
Acrylic production is difficult and costly, so there are many low-quality and cheap substitutes on the market. These substitutes are also known as "acrylic", in fact, ordinary organic board or composite board (also known as sandwich board). Ordinary organic board is casted by ordinary organic glass cracking material and pigment, the surface hardness is low, it is easy to fade, and the polishing effect is poor after sanding with fine sand. The composite board has only a thin layer of acrylic on the surface and ABS plastic in the middle. It is easy to delaminate under the influence of thermal expansion and contraction during use. True and false acrylic can be identified from the slight color difference and polishing effect of the plate section.
1. Architectural applications: display windows, soundproof doors and windows, lighting covers, telephone booths, etc.
2. Advertising applications: light boxes, signboards, signs, display racks, etc.
3. Transportation applications: doors and windows of trains, cars and other vehicles.
4. Medical applications: baby incubator, various surgical medical appliances, civilian products: bathroom facilities, handicrafts, cosmetics, brackets, aquariums, etc.
5. Industrial application: instrument surface plate and protective cover, etc.
6. Lighting applications: fluorescent lamps, chandeliers, street lampshades, etc.

Product Advantages
1. Hardness: Hardness is one of the parameters that can best reflect the production process and technology of cast acrylic sheets, and is an important part of quality control. The hardness can reflect the purity of the raw material MMA, the weather resistance of the plate and the high temperature resistance. The hardness directly affects whether the sheet will shrink and bend, and whether the surface will crack or the like during processing. Hardness is one of the indexes to judge the quality of acrylic boards. The imported material cast acrylic sheet has the highest hardness index of domestic equivalent products. The average Dallas hardness value is about 89 degrees.
2. Thickness tolerance: The thickness tolerance here is the thickness acrylic tolerance of the acrylic sheet. The control of this tolerance is an important manifestation of quality management and production technology. Thick and thin acrylic tolerances of imported acrylic materials are controlled within + 0.2mm.
3. Transparency / Whiteness: Strict raw material selection, advanced formula follow-up and modern production technology, to ensure excellent transparency and pure whiteness of the board. Crystal clear after flame polishing.

1. Specifications: 1.22 * 2.44m, 1.22 * 1.83m, 1.25 * 2.5m, 2 * 3m.
2. Thickness: 1mm-100mm.

1. Acrylic board should not coexist with other organic solvents, let alone contact with organic solvents.
2. During transportation, the surface protective film or paper must not be scratched.
3. Cannot be used in the environment where the temperature exceeds 85 ℃.
4. Only 1% soapy water is needed when cleaning acrylic sheet, soak the soapy water with a soft cotton cloth. Do not use hard objects or dry rub, otherwise the surface will be easily scratched.

5. Acrylic sheet has a large coefficient of thermal expansion and thermal expansion, due to temperature changes should be considered to reserve expansion and contraction gap.
