What is advertising acrylic and its usage

2021-11-17

Acrylic products include acrylic board, acrylic plastic particles, acrylic light box, signboard, acrylic bathtub, acrylic artificial marble, acrylic resin, acrylic (latex) paint, acrylic adhesive and so on.

The common acrylic products are acrylic products made of raw materials such as acrylic granules, plates or resins through various processing methods and combined with spare parts of different materials and functions. As for acrylic fiber, acrylic cotton, acrylic yarn and acrylic nylon, which are commonly heard, refer to man-made fibers polymerized from acrylic acid, which are not related to acrylic products.

Among them, people often say that acrylic plate is polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) plate, which is polymerized by "methyl methacrylate monomer (MMA)". Or it is extruded from acrylic pellets through an extruder. In the past, the plate was commonly known as plexiglass. Acrylic is derived from English acrylic, which means PMMA plate made of organic compound MMA. Its transparency and light transmittance are like glass. All plates made of transparent plastics such as PS, PC or inferior recycled MMA are collectively referred to as plexiglass. In order to distinguish, PMMA plate made of high-quality pure MMA is named acrylic plate, so as to distinguish it from general plexiglass plate.
