Acrylic is a useful, clear plastic that has excellent optical clarity, excellent weatherability and resistance to sunlight. It is also very rigid, with good impact strength, exceptional dimensional stability and low mould shrinkage.

Pricing: Medium.

Tensile Strength: Medium.

Heat resistance: Low.

Chemical Resistant : Yes.

Rigidity: High.

PMMA is often used as a substitute for glass in products such as:

Impact properties of ABS are exceptionally good at room temperature.

Impact strength, hardness and elastic modulus.
