Introduction of Acrylic Sheet

Acrylic, also known as PMMA or plexiglass, chemical name is polymethyl methacrylate.

It is an important plastic polymer material developed earlier. It has good transparency, chemical stability and weather resistance, easy dyeing, easy processing, and a beautiful appearance. It is widely used in the construction industry. Plexiglass products can generally be divided into cast sheets, extruded sheets, and molding compounds.

What is Acrylic Sheet used for?

Casting type: The performance of the casting type sheet is better than that of the extrusion type, and the price is also more expensive. The casting type sheet is mainly used for carving, decoration, and handicraft production.

 

Extruded type: Extruded type is usually used for advertising signs, lightboxes, etc.

 

Other uses of acrylic: it is used in various industries such as aircraft doors, tank lookouts, and the production of bathtubs.

Custom Cut Acrylic Sheet Fabrication

Process flow: acrylic material→screw extruder→die→calendering→lamination→cutting→packaging

A. Casting plate - This technology uses MMA as raw material. Under the action of the initiator, heating and polymerization are performed. When the conversion rate reaches 10%, it is cooled to room temperature. After degassing, it is poured into a template made of inorganic glass. After water bath and drying The room is heated, and after the material is completely polymerized, it is released, and the acrylic sheet is covered with film and packaged to form the finished product. The template that leaves is being re-typed and recycled.

B. Development trend of the extruded board - The extruded board is suitable for single variety and mass production, and has high requirements for workers, but the length of the produced board can be adjusted, and long-width boards can be produced; the casting board process is simple, and the investment can be large or small. Flexible production, many product styles, and good surface finish, especially in small batches, special colors, and special thicknesses, have been widely developed.

Acrylic Sheets Characteristics and Benefits

Acrylic Sheet is the product of choice for these application requirements:

  Extruded Sheet
Compared with the cast sheet, the extruded sheet has a lower molecular weight, slightly weaker mechanical properties, and higher flexibility. However, this feature facilitates bending and thermoforming processes with a shorter softening time. It is beneficial for all kinds of rapid vacuum forming when dealing with larger size sheets. At the same time, the thickness tolerance of the extruded sheet is smaller than that of the cast sheet. Due to the large-scale automatic production of extruded sheets, the color and specifications are inconvenient to adjust, so the variety of product specifications is limited to a certain extent.

  Cast Sheet

High molecular weight, excellent stiffness, strength, and excellent chemical resistance. Therefore, it is more suitable for processing large-sized logo plaques, and the time is slightly longer than that in the softening process. This kind of board is characterized by small batch processing, unparalleled flexibility in the color system and surface texture effect, and complete product specifications, suitable for various special purposes.

Acrylic sheets will fit the requirements for a multitude of applications. Acrylic sheets are not harmful to human health or the environment in manufacturing, applications, or disposal. The acrylic sheet is free of lead, cadmium, and barium. All Acrylic Sheet products comply with national and international regulations relating to the environment.

 

Applications

In our daily life, it is widely used. For example, it can be used as an advertising facility, as a lightbox, or some signboards, display stands, etc.

In terms of transportation facilities, it is also widely used in trains or cars, and can be made into car lights.

In addition, the baby's incubator is made of acrylic, which maintains high transparency. At the same time, some medical appliances can also be made of materials.

In our daily life, telephone booths or shop windows, as well as integrated ceilings, screens, etc., can be made of acrylic sheets.

FAQ

1. What are the advantages of acrylic sheet?

 

Here are the advantages of acrylic sheets as follows,
(1) With crystal-like transparency, the light transmittance is above 92%, the light is soft, the vision is clear, and the acrylic colored with dyes has a good color development effect.
(2) Acrylic sheet has excellent weather resistance, high surface hardness and surface gloss, and good high-temperature performance.
(3) Acrylic sheet has good processing performance, which can be thermoformed or mechanically processed.
(4) The transparent acrylic sheet has a light transmittance comparable to that of glass, but the density is only half of that of glass. In addition, it is not as brittle as glass, and even if broken, it will not form sharp shards like glass.
(5) The wear resistance of acrylic sheets is close to that of aluminum, with good stability and corrosion resistance to various chemicals.
(6) Acrylic sheets have good printability and sprayability. With proper printing and spraying processes, acrylic products can be given an ideal surface decoration effect.
(7) Flame resistance: It is not self-igniting but is a flammable product and does not have self-extinguishing properties.

 

 

2. What are the disadvantages of acrylic sheet?

 

Here are the disadvantages of acrylic sheets as follows,
(1) Acrylic will emit a large amount of formaldehyde and carbon monoxide when it is not fully finished. These are toxic gases and are also very harmful to the human body.
(2) The production process is very particular. If the production is not good or there are flaws in the details of the produced things, it is very likely that a certain amount of formaldehyde will be released, causing harm to the human body.
(3)Although there are many varieties of acrylic sheets and rich colors, solid wood is more high-end than solid wood, so many people also choose to use solid wood instead of acrylic sheets.

 

 

3. How does Acrylic Sheet perform?

 
Acrylic sheet has good performance, such as,
(1) Good transparency, the light transmittance of more than 92%, soft light, and acrylic colored with dyes has a strong color development effect.
(2) It has strong weather resistance, strong hardness, and high-temperature resistance.
(3) Good processing performance, either thermoforming or mechanical processing can be used.
(4) Although the transmittance is the same as that of glass, the density is only half of that of glass. In addition, it is not brittle like glass, and even if it breaks, it will not form sharp fragments like glass.
(5) It has the characteristics of wear resistance, stability, and corrosion resistance.
 

 

4. What should you pay attention to when using acrylic sheet? 

 

(1) Acrylic sheet cannot be stored in the same place with other organic solvents, let alone contact with organic solvents.
(2) During transportation, the surface protective film or protective paper cannot be scratched.
(3) It cannot be used in an environment where the temperature exceeds 85°C.
(4) When cleaning the acrylic sheet, only 1% soapy water is needed. Use a soft cotton cloth dipped in soapy water. Do not use hard objects or dry wipes, otherwise the surface will be easily scratched.
(5) Acrylic plate has a large thermal expansion coefficient, so the expansion gap should be reserved due to temperature changes.

 

 

5. How to process acrylic sheet?

 

Acrylic sheets have good processing properties, which can be thermoformed (including compression molding, blow molding and vacuum molding), or mechanical processing methods such as drilling, turning, cutting, etc. The mechanical cutting and engraving controlled by a microcomputer not only greatly improves the processing accuracy, but also produces patterns and shapes that cannot be completed by traditional methods. In addition, the acrylic sheet can be laser cut and laser engraved to produce products with peculiar effects.

 

 

6. What are acrylic sheets used for?

 

Commonly, acrylic sheets can be used for as follows,
