What is the difference between acrylic, plexiglass and organic boards?
As acrylic products gradually penetrate into many materials, we are becoming more familiar with acrylic or plexiglass panels. We all know that acrylic plates are also called plexiglass plates, so in our subconscious, plexiglass refers to acrylic. In fact, there is still a difference between plexiglass and acrylic. Today, Xiaobian will give you a detailed understanding of the difference between acrylic and plexiglass and plexiglass.
Plexiglass is a polymer compound polymerized from methyl methacrylate. It is an important thermoplastic developed earlier. It has an excellent Tongguang rate of 99%; plexiglass has excellent heat and cold resistance, good corrosion resistance, and low surface hardness (scratch is easy to occur).
Acrylic sheet is made of PMMA sheet plexiglass and specially processed plexiglass; it also has very high transparency, but the surface hardness is also very high with good processing properties. Generally speaking, acrylic is a higher-grade plexiglass sheet, and all imported plexiglass sheets are called: acrylic, imported acrylic sheet. The characteristics of acrylic are crystal clear and have the reputation of crystal. The most mentioned crystal characters and cards on weekdays are acrylic. Widely used in shopping malls, specialty stores, high-end booths, product display rack production. Plexiglass is also a kind of plastic sheet commonly known as: organic sheet, organic board, plexiglass sheet, light box sheet. The product can be plasticized and shaped to facilitate the processing. Mostly used in the processing of low-end products, mostly used in light box production.
Organic boards and plexiglass are the same type of board, except that plexiglass is transparent, and organic boards have many colors. More specifically, the organic plate is also called PS plate, PS organic plate, etc.; when the temperature reaches 50-60 degrees or more, the organic plate begins to be hot-bent and deformed, which is neither resistant to high temperature; the material is brittle, and the impact resistance/weather resistance is It is worse than acrylic sheet and plexiglass board.
Acrylic, plexiglass, and organic boards are used in real life. You only need to pay attention to them on the road or in the mall. There are many places that use these materials, such as roadside billboards and general stores. The words used, some counters in the mall, etc.
