Acrylic, also known as PMMA (Polymethyl methacrylate), is a rigid and transparent plastic material with outstanding strength, stiffness, and optical clarity.

Acrylic is a scratch-resistant plastic. It is often used for tanks, panels, and optical applications. Clear acrylic will take on more of a frosted translucent appearance when machined, though can be smoothed again to an optically clear state using various finishing methods.

Features of Acrylic plastic :
With crystal-like transparency, the light transmittance is above 92%. This light transmittance is higher than that of glass and other plastics.
High surface hardness and surface gloss. Acrylic has great scratch resistance.
Acrylic has good processing performance.
Wear-resistant and corrosion-resistant. Aqueous solutions of most laboratory chemicals do not affect acrylics.
