The Difference Between Acrylic and Pvc Materials

Feb. 07, 2020

Acrylic and PVC materials are common plastics in our daily life and can be used in many fields as conventional materials. Many people think that acrylic and PVC materials are basically the same. In fact, these two materials are still very different, and The industries and fields used also have certain requirements. Bar LED ice bucket supplier share with you:

I. Acrylic

Acrylic, also known as plexiglass, is a chemically specific term for polymethyl methacrylate, or PMMA for short. As a common processable thermoplastic material in plastics, it is widely used in color covers, LED acrylic ice buckets, windshields, mechanical covers, door and window glass, decoration, advertising materials, handicrafts, shower appliances And kitchen utensils.

Acrylic materials have a high degree of light transmission, excellent weather resistance, can accept high temperature and strong solar radiation, resistance to solvents and common chemicals; the disadvantage of acrylic is poor impact resistance, in some more sophisticated industries There are few applications, but the modified acrylic board can meet the requirements of anti-shock performance in most occasions.

Second, pvc

PVC is a superior thermoforming material that can replace some stainless steel and other corrosion-resistant synthetic materials and is widely used in chemical petroleum, electroplating, water purification treatment equipment, environmental protection equipment, mining, medicine, electronics, communications and decoration fields. PVC has excellent chemical stability, corrosion resistance, high hardness, high strength, UV resistance, fire resistance and flame retardant, reliable insulation performance, smooth and flat surface, no water absorption, no deformation, easy processing and so on.

Third, the difference between acrylic and PVC

1. Color: The stability of PVC board is poor, and it is easy to decompose during processing. Generally, the acrylic color of the same color will be yellower than the background color.

2. Density: The density of PVC transparent board is 1.38g / cm3, the density of acrylic board is 1.1g / cm3; the same size, PVC board is slightly heavier.

3. Sound: Use two boards of similar area to lightly drop on the floor or hit with your hands. The clear sound is acrylic. The dull thing is PVC.

4, burning smell: acrylic flame flame yellow, alcoholic and smokeless. When the PVC board burns, the flame is green, with the smell of hydrochloric acid, and emits white smoke.

5. Price: Compared to the price of acrylic, PVC is cheaper.
