PMMA, also known as acrylic or acrylic, is an important thermoplastic developed earlier in Hong Kong. It has good transparency, chemical stability and weather resistance, easy to dye, easy to process and beautiful appearance. It is widely used in the construction industry. Plexiglass products can be divided into pouring plate, extruding plate and molding plastics.
The application of acrylic in building industry in building industry. Acrylic is mainly used in building daylighting body, transparent roof, ceiling, telephone booth, stair and room wall guard board, etc.; sanitary wares include bathtub, washbasin, dressing table, etc. In recent years, it has also developed rapidly in the application of highway and high-grade road lighting shades and automobile lamps. Among them, the market growth of building daylighting body, bathtub, street advertising light box and telephone booth is fast, and the future development space is large, and the market prospect is very broad.
In recent years, with the construction of hotels, hotels and high-grade residences in major cities, the development of building daylighting body in our country is rapid. The daylighting body made of PMMA (acrylic) extrusion plate has the advantages of high overall structural strength, light weight, high transmittance, high safety performance and so on. Compared with inorganic glass daylighting, it has great advantages.
At present, the United States and Japan have made mandatory provisions in the law, and the plexiglass acrylic (acrylic) must be used in the construction of primary and secondary schools and kindergartens. With the continuous improvement of laws and regulations in China, it is expected that in the near future, China's laws will also stipulate that plexiglass acrylic (acrylic) must also be used in primary and secondary schools and kindergartens. At the same time, the pace of urban construction has been accelerated all over the country, with a large number of street signs, advertising light boxes and telephone booths, among which a considerable part of the materials used are acrylic materials.
In terms of sanitary ware, because of its luxurious appearance, deep feeling, easy cleaning, high strength, light weight and comfortable use, the plexiglass acrylic bathtub has been widely used in recent years. At present, the annual output of plexiglass acrylic bathtubs is about 1.5 million, and the annual consumption of PMMA extrusion plate or pouring plate is more than 5000 tons. With the improvement of building laws and regulations in China, acrylic will show strong competitiveness in more application fields.
