    Plexiglass is a chemical synthetic material, also known as methyl methacrylate. Plexiglass is synthesized from a resin raw material. It is a kind of plastic in its own job. Plexiglass is relatively light, but it has strong hardness and can be used in many places. It also has another common name, called acrylic. I believe many people have heard of this term.

    Plexiglass has very good transparency, good corrosion resistance, will not age in a short time, and the price is close to the people. Its main features are as follows:
    1、 High transparency
    Plexiglass is an excellent polymer transparent material. The solar lamp tube of artificial small sun is made of quartz (because quartz can completely pass through ultraviolet rays). Ordinary glass can only pass through 0.6 & ultraviolet rays, but plexiglass can pass through 73%.
    2、 High mechanical strength
    The relative molecule of plexiglass is about 2 million, which is a long-chain polymer compound, and the chain forming the molecule is very soft. Therefore, the strength of plexiglass is high after all, and its tensile and impact resistance are 7-18 times higher than that of ordinary glass. There is a kind of plexiglass that has been heated and stretched. Even if the nail penetrates the plexiglass, it will not produce cracks. This kind of plexiglass cup will not become fragments after being broken down. Therefore, the stretched plexiglass can be used as bulletproof glass and the cockpit cover of military aircraft.
    3、 Light weight
    The density of plexiglass is 1.18g/cm3, while the weight of materials of the same size is only half that of ordinary glass!
    4、 Easy to process
    Plexiglass can not only be cut by lathe and drilled by drilling machine, but also be bonded into various shapes by imitation. It can also be processed into products ranging from aircraft cockpit cover to dentures and dentures by plastic molding methods such as blow molding, injection and extrusion.
    Plexiglass is widely used, not only in light industry, commerce and chemical industry. Moreover, it is widely used in advertising decoration and sand table model.
