Essential Information about Acrylic Plastic

Acrylic plastic is a transparent thermoplastic homopolymer that is known more commonly as plexiglass. Chemically, the material is similar to polycarbonate, so it is suitable as a replacement for glass because it is impact resistant. The first acrylic plastics are traced back to 1928 and then brought to market in 1933 by the Rohm and Hass Company. When compared to other similar plastics on the market, acrylic is known as the most transparent of the group.

Laser Cutting Acrylic

In modern times, acrylic can be found in both commercial and residential use. It is also commonly used in construction, to replace windows and other fixtures.

Some of the critical properties that warrant frequent use of acrylic include:

  1. Thermoplastic: acrylic, when heated enough, will liquefy instead of burn.  This property allows for the acrylic to be put through different manufacturing processes like injecting molding. The material is also recyclable.
  2. Scratch resistant: acrylic is scratch resistant, unlike glass. Many things can happen in a store or a home that creates dangerous situations for acrylic displays. Once the glass is scratched deep enough, it will leave a permanent and ugly stain on the surface.
  3. Thick: acrylic can be made thicker than glass while retaining its natural color. Glass turns green as it gets thicker and thicker.
  4. Inexpensive: acrylic is easy to manufacture, so it is inexpensive to make. When compared to glass, acrylic is the more economical option.
  5. Customization: laser cutting acrylic allows for detailed and unique shapes to be cut. Our team can help you bring the most of your visions to life with laser cutting technology.
