Acrylic sheets have the advantages of light weight, low cost, and easy molding. Its molding methods include casting, injection molding, machining, and thermoforming. In particular, injection molding can be mass-produced, with simple process and low cost. Therefore, its application is increasingly widespread, it is widely used in instrumentation parts, automotive lights, optical lenses, transparent pipes and so on.
Acrylic is the best new material that can be used to make sanitary ware after ceramics. Compared with traditional ceramic materials, acrylic has the following advantages in addition to unparalleled high brightness: good toughness and not easy to break; strong repairability, just use a soft foam to remove the toothpaste to wipe the sanitary ware; soft texture In winter, there is no feeling of cold and biting; the color is bright, which can satisfy the individual pursuit of different tastes. The use of acrylic to make basins, bathtubs, toilets, not only beautiful style, durable, but also environmentally friendly, its radiation and the body's own bones radiation levels are almost the same. Acrylic sanitary ware first appeared in the United States and has occupied more than 70% of the entire international market.
Because acrylic production is difficult and costly, there are many low-cost and low-cost substitutes on the market. These substitutes are also known as "acrylic" and are actually ordinary organic or composite boards (also known as sandwich panels). Ordinary organic plates are cast with common plexiglass cracking materials and pigments. The surface hardness is low and easy to fade. After polishing with fine sand, the polishing effect is poor. The composite board has only a thin surface and a laminated force, and the middle is ABS plastic, which is easily delaminated by the expansion and contraction during use. True and false acrylic can be identified from the subtle chromatic aberration and polishing effect of the sheet section.
