Acrylic (PMMA – polymethyl methacrylate) is a transparent, thermoplastic that is commonly known as Plexiglas®. Thermoplastics like Acrylic can be heated to their melting point, cooled and reheated without substantial degradation. This allows them to be easily injection moulded. PMMA has high strength, stiffness, optical clarity and resistance to UV and weathering. These properties make … Read moreWhat is the best adhesive for bonding Acrylic?
Acetal (Polyoxymethylene) is a strong and rigid thermoplastic that has good moisture, heat and chemical resistance. It is commonly used in industries as a replacement for metals, due to its lightweight, low cost and good structural properties. The two basic types of acetal resins are Acetal Copolymer (Celcon®), and Acetal Homopolymer (Delrin®). Acetal Homopolymer offers … Read moreWhat is the best adhesive for bonding Acetal?
