Acrylic

Most acrylics are polymers of methyl methacrylate (PMMA). Acrylic can be optically clear or cloudy, as in the case of impact modified acrylics.

ADVANTAGES:

  • Excellent optical clarity
  • Excellent weatherability and resistance to sunlight
  • Rigid, with good impact strength
  • Excellent dimensional stability and low mould shrinkage
  • Stretch forming increases bi-axial toughness

DISADVANTAGES AND LIMITATIONS:

  • Poor solvent resistance; attacked especially by ketones, esters, chlorocarbons and aromatic hydrocarbons, freons
  • Subject to stress cracking
  • Combustible
  • Continuous service temperature limited to about 200 F degrees
  • Flexible grades unavailable

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS:

Transparent items such as lenses, automotive trim, household items, light fixtures, decorator items signage and point of purchase display
