Product Description

Acrylic, also known as Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA) film, is a thermoplastic known to be one of the most economical d easily fabricated plastic films. PolymerFilms offers a full line of Acrylic film products from world-leading producers like Spartech (Acrylloy™) Many turn to this material as a cost-effective alternative to polycarbonate. It offers clear, glass-like brilliance and translucence, but is much lighter and more durable than glass. It presents high light transmissions and transparency. Acrylic film is stocked in glossy, matte, velvet, and polished finishes in an array of different colors.

Acrylic boasts a variety of high-performance properties, including optical clarity, low UV sensitivity, and overall weather resistance. It is sturdy, scratch-resistant, and can withstand heat lamination, making moldability easy. Coatings can be applied to this versatile material to enhance functionality, including scratch-resistance, anti-fog, or reflective characteristics. Additionally, an acrylic film is slow-burning or even self-extinguishing, and does not produce harmful smoke or gases in the presence of a flame. Impact toughness meets clarity and UV protection of the acrylic, making it most suitable for applications in the Transportation and Graphics / Print industries. Other uses typically include lighting diffusers, sanitary products, displays, home appliances, electronic devices, and more.
