Acrylic / PolyMethylMethaAcrylate (PMMA )
PolyMethylMethaAcrylate or more commonly known as Acrylic is a transparent thermoplastic material with outstanding strength, stiffness and optical clarity. Acrylic is a useful plastic for applications that require transparency where high impact resistance is not required. Acrylic is scratch resistant compared to other plastics & it is a lighter alternative to glass and an economic substitute for Poly carbonate.
Acrylic is easy to fabricate and bonds well when using the appropriate adhesives and solvents.
We can also supply acrylic components that need to be cut into extremely fine / small shapes using our in-house laser cutting technology; as the concentrated laser energy helps vaporize the material upon impact.
Some common applications of acrylic components are optical lenses, structural and support members for solar concentrating collectors, piping, reflecting surfaces, cabinets and display frames.
We stock Acrylic in various stock shapes such as solid plain sheets, round rods, square bars and circular pipes. We also supply acrylic sheets in colours such as red, black, blue,
