About Acrylic


PROPERTIES

Poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA), also known as acrylic, or acrylic glass, is a transparent thermoplastic often used in sheet form as a lightweight or shatter-resistant alternative to glass.
  • Crystal clear and distortion free Tough and shatter proof at up to 17 times more impact resistant than glass.
  • 50% less weight than glass stunning clarity (it transmits up to 92% of visible light).
  • Highly weather resistant.

HISTORY

In 1928, chemist and industrialist Otto Röhm of Rohm and Haas AG in Germany attempted to produce safety glass by polymerizing methyl methacrylate between two layers of glass. The polymer separated from the glass as a clear plastic sheet, which Röhm gave the trademarked name Plexiglass in 1933. In 1936 ICI Acrylics (now Lucite International) began the first commercially viable production of acrylic safety glass

PLEXIGLASS, PERSPEX or LUCITE?

There’s just no difference!
In the corporate world, if a company's product is popular enough, it risks something called genericization, which is when the public associates the brand name with the generic class of product itself.
That's the fate that befell Kleenex. Although Kleenex is a registered trademark of Kimberly-Clark Corporation, for many consumers, the word has become interchangeable with "tissue.” So Poly(methyl methacrylate) became Plexiglass, Perspex, Lucite, Acrylite, PerClax, R-Cast,Optix, Oroglas, Altuglas and others..
