The Performance Characteristics and Applications of Acrylic Board
Acrylic panel is a general term for acrylic acid and MMA chemical products, is also called a kind of specially processed organic glass. With its unique features and widespread applied range, the acrylic panel is famous for "The Queen of Plastic", and the research and development of it can be dated back to about one hundred years ago. The acrylic panel is divided into casting board and extrusion board according to the different manufacturing process. The feature of acrylic casting panel is the high molecular weight, excellent stiffness and anti-chemical performance, so it can be processed in a small scale. Furthermore, it has unmatched flexibility in the color system dealing and surface texture aspects, so people always use it for various kinds of special applications. While comparing to the casting board, the extrusion board has a lower molecular weight and wore mechanical properties, so it is often used to dealing the large size materials.
Like the crystal, the acrylic board has the fantastic transparency, and the light transmittance of it can arrive over 92%. Moreover, the acrylic board has the terrific weather resistance and high temperature resistance, so it has a strong natural environmental suitability and can be often seen in the outdoor project applications.
Besides, the hardness is one of the most important parameters to reflect the manufacturing technique of acrylic board, so people can produce various kinds of boards according to the practical needs. Due to the unique physical and chemical properties, the acrylic board can be used in lots of fields.
Acrylic sheet is mainly used in the sculpture, decorative field and the producing of artwork and so on, and the extrusion board is generally used for the advertising sign and light box. With the improvement of science and technology, its applications have become wider and wider. In the architecture aspect, the cutting acrylic sheet is mainly used in lighting, roof panel and interior wall panel and so on because of its strong construct strength and high light transmittance. Besides, along with the rapid development of urban transportation, the acrylic board is also used as the lighting lamp-chimney of the expressway and the automobile lighting lamps.
Compared to the traditional ceramic material, the acrylic board has lots of advantages, such as the incomparable highlight, nice tenacity, and soft character and so on, so it is treated as the best new type material for sanitary ware following the ceramic material. The acrylic board can give people a feeling of luxury and meet the personal pursuit, and the most important thing is that it has the function of environmental protection. Besides the traditional furniture and daily items use, the acrylic board can be also made of various kinds of fashion items, and to add color to people's daily life.
