PMMA, also known as Polymethyl methacrylate and often referred to as acrylic, is a transparent thermoplastic that is widely used as a lightweight and shatter-resistant alternative to glass. It is a versatile material that has a variety of applications due to its transparency, durability, and weather resistance.

Key properties:

  • High light transmission
  • Excellent optical clarity
  • Weather resistance
  • Shatter resistance
  • Good abrasion resistance
  • Good insulation properties
  • Easy handling and processing
  • Low weight
  • UV resistant
  • Useful for:

  • Lenses
  • Screens and displays
  • Headlights
  • Skylights
  • Drinkware
  • Electronic casings
  • PMMA

    PMMA 3mm applications

    Outdoor lighting enclosures

    PMMA's glass-like clarity and UV resistance make it an ideal material for applications that are exposed to sunlight for extended periods. Additionally, PMMA is shatter-resistant, which further increases its durability and suitability for use in outdoor settings.

    Incubator lids

    PMMA is a suitable material for incubator lids due to its transparency, durability, and shatter resistance. The high light transmission and optical clarity of PMMA allows for clear viewing of the contents of the incubator, while the weather resistance and shatter resistance make it a durable choice for use in a laboratory setting.

    Ski lenses

    PMMA is a material that is tough, shatterproof, weather-resistant, and very flexible. It is also optically clear and can be treated to reduce glare and improve vision in sunny conditions. Additionally, it can be treated with special coatings to make it anti-fog and hydrophobic. PMMA can also be tinted to enhance contrast and depth perception in low-light conditions.

    Transparent electronics housings

    PMMA is used to produce transparent electronic housings due to its high light transmission and optical clarity. These properties make it an ideal material for applications such as screens, displays, and touch panels. Additionally, PMMA is shatter-resistant and weather-resistant, which increases its durability.

    Reasons to choose PMMA for your application:

    • High resistance to UV light
    • High light transmission
    • Weather resistance
    • Shatter-resistant
    • Glass-like clarity
    • Lightweight
    • Easy to fabricate
