What is Acrylic (PMMA) ?
Acrylic is called "polymethyl methacrylate" Poly (methyl methacrylate), referred to as PMMA, also known as plexiglass. It has the reputation of "plastic crystal" and is often used as a substitute for glass. 92% light transmittance, good weather resistance, easy to machine, can be adhered with chloroform, and suitable for various painting and printing (suitable for acrylic materials).
Acrylic Material properties and benefits?
The water absorption rate of acrylic is 0.3%. 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.
