Acrylic Makes Life More Fun

Mar. 09, 2020

Car lights, optical lenses, chandeliers, store signs, display racks, storage boxes ... do you know? These common items in our daily life can be made of acrylic.

Many people may have heard of acrylic, but it is not clear what it is used for, and some may wonder if acrylic is related to chocolate.

In fact, although there is only a word difference between acrylic and chocolate, they are very different.

The name acrylic comes from the English "acrylic" (acrylic plastic), and the chemical name is polymethyl methacrylate. Acrylic can also be called P, MMA or plexiglass. It is an earlier developed thermoplastic. It has a history of more than 100 years. So far, acrylic is still the most excellent material in synthetic transparent materials.

Let's take a look at what aspects of acrylic are excellent.

One. High light transmission

The production process of LED acrylic serving tray guarantees both transparency and pure whiteness. The light transmittance is up to 92%. The light is soft, the vision is clear, and the light transmittance is higher than that of glass.

two. High hardness

The relative molecular mass of acrylic is about 2 million. It is a long-chain polymer compound. The chain that forms the molecule is soft, so the acrylic strength is extremely high.

At the same time, hardness is also one of the important rigid indicators to measure the quality of acrylic. The high-quality LED acrylic shot glass serving tray has an average hardness of about 89 degrees on the Rockwell hardness scale. Its resistance to stretching and impact 7-18 times higher than ordinary glass.

Easy to process

Acrylic has strong plasticity. It can be used for thermoforming or mechanical processing. Lathe cutting, drilling machine drilling, blow molding and other plastic molding methods can easily process acrylic into products of different sizes and functions.

At the same time, acrylic has good adaptability and sprayability. Using appropriate printing spraying technology can make acrylic products achieve the ideal surface decoration effect.

Light weight

Compared with ordinary glass, acrylic with the same volume weighs only half of ordinary glass; compared with metallic aluminum (light metal), it weighs only 43% of metallic aluminum. The lighter weight also makes acrylic easier to transport.

With many advantages such as high light transmission, high hardness, easy processing, light weight, and good toughness, acrylic can be used in many fields in addition to the common items in daily life mentioned at the beginning. The outer glass cover of the deep-sea submarine, the windshield of the fighter aircraft, the roof of the giant building (the entire roof of the Munich Olympic Stadium built in the 1970s is made of acrylic materials, and it is still beautiful and intact so far), the giant fish tank of the underwater world (global The largest bathtubs are made of acrylic material), and even early cell phone screens were made of acrylic.

It is as small as a common object in daily life and as large as various high-tech products. It can be said that the emergence of acrylic has made it possible for more high-quality products to appear.
