If there is one thing in this world that is pleasing to the eye, it must be the various kinds of acrylic lightboxes on the street. Glass is the earliest thing we contact. In our view, transparent products are generally made of glass.


We never thought that one day glass will be eliminated by acrylic products. Perhaps acrylic products are based on the disadvantages of glass and constantly improve the glass instead. Why are acrylic products popular? The following is a good explanation of the main reasons why acrylic products instead of glass.


High light transmittance

The acrylic light transmission rate is very good, the light transmission rate of 92% or more, while the ordinary glass light transmission rate of 85%. So dyed acrylic craft products, in the sunlight, crystal clear, very beautiful!


The insulation effect is outstanding

Acrylic has a very good insulation effect. Acrylic has applications in many electronic products, such as tablet PCs, cell phones, computers, stereos, televisions, and other products used in some of the very small components insulators.


Strong weather resistance

Acrylic weather resistance is very strong. It will not be exposed to the sun and freezing and other reasons yellowing and shattering. Letting you clean up is also very convenient.


Everyone is usually off work to pay attention to the business around the road lightboxes, billboards, and roadside lamp covers, and other products, many of which are used are acrylic materials. Regardless of the wind, rain, snow, sun, acrylic lightboxes, and billboards, lampshades are very long life, is because of the stability of acrylic materials and lightweight strong.


Environmental protection

Acrylic is very environmentally friendly, can be repeatedly used. We may usually encounter, glass made of cups ah, what is broken, is to take a broom sweep to the garbage bin. Some ordinary glass products, when moving, because heavy, with inconvenient, throw and pity, and take to sell scrap can not sell a good price. But if the family has acrylic material to do the product, this material scrap recycling, the price is very high!



Acrylic shaping freedom is very high, can be processed at will to become the type you want very much: the acrylic material is more flexible than ordinary glass.

Because acrylic material is lighter than ordinary glass materials, cutting and processing technology is not complicated, so acrylic products can basically meet the needs of all walks of life for customized products. For example, our common life cosmetics display shelves, photo frames, watch racks, or as large as aircraft windows, fighter jet window covers, tank windows, etc., size and shape, height and thickness, can be made according to customer needs.


Strong impact resistance

Acrylic than ordinary glass impact resistance is more than 20 times higher, this is a foreign test that has been done. When a certain thickness of acrylic material is placed in front of the test protection body, the standard American M16 assault rifle, a burst of fire, in front of the acrylic material is always unable to penetrate, wounding the target. So this is why in some foreign heads of special cars, acrylic as a bulletproof material is widely used.


Strong corrosion resistance

Acrylic anti-corrosion ability is very strong. It is no exaggeration to tell you that you put strong sulfuric acid directly on top of the acrylic material, no problem at all.
