Plexiglass or polymethyl methacrylate is a plastic material made from methyl methacrylate polymers. More transparent than glass and more or less unbreakable depending on its mixture, Plexiglas is used to manufacture safety glass, furniture and architectural objects, lighting technology, signage, automotive industry, and many other areas.

One of the finest plastics materials

As a rule, it is very transparent, more so than glass, to the point that it possesses behavioural characteristics comparable to optical fibre in terms of transparency and with the property of being unbreakable more or less depending on its “mixture”. Because of these characteristics, it is used to manufacture safety glass and similar items, in accident prevention equipment and in furnishing and architectural objects in general.

Cast PMMA can be recycled: by distilling the production waste, the basic monomer MMA is obtained and can be polymerised again.

Characteristics of Plexiglass (PMMA)

The following characteristics make plexiglass a material suitable for many purposes: from architecture to engineering and biomedicine:
