Acrylic Material properties and benefits?
Q: What is the water absorption rate of acrylic?
     The water absorption rate of acrylic is 0.3~0.4%. If the acrylic material absorbs too much water, it is prone to foaming during thermoforming, and it is also prone to cracking and appearance deformation during printing. If it is stored in a humid environment, it will affect the expansion and contraction of the product. If you are very demanding on dimensional tolerances, it is recommended to store it in a dehumidification chamber or vacuum treatment. SMEACRYLIC has nearly 100 pings of dehumidification warehouse space to store all kinds of plates, which can avoid the damage and deformation of the plates due to the humidity of the environment.

Q: What are the advantages of acrylic material?
◆High transparency, light transmittance up to 92%, has the reputation of "plastic crystal".
◆High thickness can still maintain high transparency, with crystal texture.
◆Excellent weather resistance, strong adaptability to the natural environment, even if it is exposed to sunlight, wind and rain for a long time, it will not
◆It has changed its performance, has good anti-aging performance, and can be used outdoors with peace of mind, ranking first among other plastics.
◆Good surface hardness <pencil hardness 2~3H> and gloss.
◆Thermoplastic plastic, with great plasticity, suitable for machining and easy thermoforming.
◆Chemical resistance, suitable for all kinds of painting and printing.
◆Easy color matching, bright and full color.
◆Acrylic's specific gravity is less than half of that of ordinary glass, but its anti-fragmentation ability is several times higher; it has good insulation and mechanical strength; it has strong corrosion resistance to acids, alkalis and salts; and it is easy to process ; Can be used for manual and mechanical processing such as bonding, sawing, planing, drilling, carving, grinding, screen printing, sandblasting, etc. After heating, it can be bent and molded into various acrylic products.

Attention :
  ◆Acrylic materials cannot be stored in the same place with other organic solvents, let alone contact with organic solvents.
  ◆ During transportation, the surface protective film or protective paper cannot be scratched.
  ◆Can not be used in an environment where the temperature exceeds 85℃.
  ◆Only use 1% soapy water when cleaning acrylic products, and use a soft cotton cloth to dip the soapy water. Do not use hard objects or dry wipes, otherwise the surface will be easily scratched.
  ◆Acrylic material has a large coefficient of thermal and cold expansion. Due to temperature changes, expansion and contraction gaps should be considered.
