PMMA, also called acrylic, is a kind of colorless and transparent particle. It provides good transparency, chemical stability and weathering resistance. And easy to stain ,easy processing. Besides, it has beautiful appearance. It's widely used in the modern construction industry. PMMA is a non-toxic and environmentally-friendly material that can be used to produce tableware. PMMA generally can be divided into pouring plates, plate and extrusion molding.
●PMMA Vs PC
Acrylic, Polycarbonate and glass are all transparent materials and as discussed above, PC and PMMA are suitable, shatter-resistance alternatives to glass. PMMA is often used as a lightweight alternative to glass and a reasonable substitute to polycarbonate (PC) thanks to its cost-effectiveness and when extreme strength is not essential.
Also, PMMA is less likely to scratch and does not yellow over a period of time. The other benefits which PMMA offers PC includes very high transmissivity and better optical clarity which can be also be restored by polishing. PMMA is a great choice for optical devices because it is less damaging to tissues when it is fractured.
