Polymethyl methacrylate, the material of the future
Polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) is a thermoplastic material characterised by transparency, rigidity and ease of processing.
It has excellent mechanical and thermal properties, good dielectric properties, impact resistance, resistance to chemicals (including detergents, even for domestic use), high resistance to atmospheric agents, and exceptional optical properties (transparency, clarity).
Difficult to imitate in terms of appearance, Sintetica methacrylate is an elegant and extremely valuable material. The acrylic sheet with its varied colours, transparencies and decorations lends itself to many uses.
It boasts innovative technical properties that facilitate finishing processes without abandoning the possibility of using common equipment such as lasers, pantographs, lathes and milling machines. In addition, cast polymethylmethacrylate can be subjected to numerous types of processing, many of which take advantage of its characteristic of being a thermoplastic material. It is sufficient to bring the material above 90°C in order to be able to mould, bend or vacuum form it.
The material produced is completely non-toxic, it can also be used for foodstuffs, and it’s perfectly recyclable.
In addition, all processing waste from cutting, shaping and finishing the sheets, together with any scraps or processing defects, can be recovered and re-melted to obtain new raw material.
