Acrylic products that are now common are made of acrylic granules, plates or resins and other raw materials through various processing methods and with various materials and functional parts. As for the commonly heard acrylic fibers, acrylic cotton, acrylic yarn, acrylic nylon, etc., it refers to man-made fibers polymerized by acrylic acid, and is not related to acrylic products.
Among them, it is often said that the acrylic sheet is polymethyl methacrylate (Polymeric Methyl Methacrylate (PMMA) sheet, which is polymerized by "methyl methacrylate monomer Methyl Methacrylate (MMA)". Or it is made of acrylic granules extruded through a plate extruder. In the past, the board was commonly called plexiglass.
Acrylic means PMMA board made of organic compound MMA, whose transparency and light transmittance are like glass. Because all the plates made of transparent plastics such as PS, PC, etc. or of poor quality recycled MMA are collectively called plexiglass. For the sake of separation, PMMA plates made of high-quality pure materials MMA are all called acrylic plates to distinguish them from ordinary plexiglass plates
