Acrylic sheet has crystal-like transparency with light transmittance of over 92%. Acrylic sheet colored with dye has good color development effect. In addition, acrylic sheet has excellent weather resistance, high surface hardness and luster, and good high temperature resistance.
Acrylic plate has good processing performance and can be divided into casting type and extrusion type according to production process. Both thermoforming (including molding, blow molding and vacuum suction) and mechanical processing methods such as drilling, turning, washing and cutting can be used. The mechanical cutting, scraping and carving controlled by microcomputer not only greatly improves the processing precision, but also can produce more exquisite patterns and shapes than traditional methods.
In addition, acrylic plates can be laser cut and laser engraved to produce products with peculiar effects. Hardness is one of the parameters that can best reflect the production process and technology of cast acrylic plate, and is an important link in quality control. Hardness can reflect the purity of raw materials, weather resistance and high temperature resistance of the plate. Hardness directly affects whether the plate will shrink, bend or deform, and whether the surface will crack during processing. Hardness is one of the hard indexes to judge the quality of acrylic plate.
Acrylic plate has excellent weather resistance, especially for outdoor use, ranking first among other plastics. It has good surface hardness and luster, and has high processing plasticity. It can be made into various required shapes and products. There are many kinds of plates with rich colors (including semitransparent color plates). Another characteristic is that thick plates can still maintain high transparency.
