Information @ a Glance

  • A transparent thermoplastic which is an ester of methacrylic acid belongs to acrylic family of resins.

  • A strong and lightweight material possess good impact strength higher than glass and filters UV lights.

  • A tough and rigid plastic and in addition , it has perfect transmission of light.

  • Additional features are high rigidity, chemical resistance, recyclable, amorphous and scratch resistant and excellent colorability.

  • Also known as acrylic glass and chemically as synthetic polymer of methyl methacrylate or PMMA.

  • It has been sold under different names such as Plexiglas, Lucite, Perspex, Oroglas, Altuglas.

  • Polymerization Mechanisms of producing PMMA are emulsion polymerization, solution polymerization and bulk polymerization.

  • An acrylic resin which is made from MMA and are manufactured through co-polymerization of MMA with MA or with EA.

  • PMMA, the most common methacrylic polymer, is made into sheets by one of three methods; batch cell, continuous or extrusion.

  • A versatile polymeric material that is well suitedfor many imaging and non-imaging microelectronic applications.

  • The ability to mold PMMA allows for the easy and inexpensive manufacture of complex optics. Complex reflex lenses, used in automobile tail lights, are made from PMMA.

  • Applications includes such as Protective coating for wafer thinning, as a bonding adhesive and widely used as a high resolution positive resist for direct write e-beam as well as x-ray and deep UV micro lithographic processes.

  • Polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) also used in the construction industry, lighting applications, road signs, automotive and related areas, electronics and consumer-ware.

  • PMMA beads are a reinforcing agent to prevent crack propagation in the cured polymer matrix.

  • Expected market growth rate of PMMA in fields like automotive-8%, construction-6%, Electronics-6% and in Solar - 56% from 2011-2015.

  • Ongoing developments in PMMA keep increasing the demands on it and also opening up new creative approaches in various fields.
