Improving the processing of polymer manufacture to get the maximum mechanical properties
There are various characteristics and properties of Polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) that are essential in the improvement of the processing of polymer manufacture. PMMA have been widely used in place of the glass. Consequently, its unique features have been the contributing factors in its applications. The properties of PMMA include:
Weight: The material is always lightweight and even durable.
Density: The material has a density of between 1.15-1.19 g/cm3. This weight is estimated as half the density of a glass material.
Strength: PMMA has a good impact strength which is significantly lower than the strength of the polycarbonate as well as other engineered polymers. In addition, the strength of the PMMA ...
