Light Guide Rod introduction
Automtive light guide rod are a kind of decoration with linear lights, which are often installed on cars. This decorative item can bring a unique visual effect to the car, improve its recognition and safety, and can also create a unique atmosphere for the car interior.
Customized Acrylic ?
SMEACRYLIC is the leader in extrusion manufacturing in Southeast Asia. It has 40 years of extrusion experience. The extrusion process is granular PMMA, which is heated and melted into a molten state. Then, the plastic material is pushed into the mold by extrusion. , and then set by water cooling. After cooling and setting, it will be cut according to the required length. The extruded acrylic products will produce round tubes (rods) or special-shaped products according to different mold shapes.
Acrylic Extruded Tube VS. Cast Tube
At present, SMEACRYLIC extruded acrylic round tube, which can produce a maximum outer diameter of 250mm, but if you need a larger size, you can consider casting acrylic round tube, the outer diameter can reach 600mm, thickness 10mm, fixed The length is 1.0~1.2M. The manufacturing process is based on liquid MMA raw material, poured into the tube mold, and formed by the centrifugal principle. The dimensional tolerance is large, the process is long, and one piece can be produced. It is suitable for small-scale production. Better, because the molecular weight is high, it can withstand temperature of about 90 degrees, but there will be fine cloth wheel throw marks on the surface.
Both have their own advantages and disadvantages, mainly need to consider the way of use and the environment, the following is a comparison table between acrylic and PC for your reference: PMMA acrylic: fragile, light transmittance 92%, processing temperature 70 degrees, not easy to yellow Chemical, cheap PC polycarbonate: impact resistance is 30 times stronger than acrylic, light transmission is 88%, processing temperature is 120 degrees, easy to yellow, and the price is higher
