       The research, development and use of acrylic sheets have a history of more than one hundred years. In 1880, the polymerizability of methacrylic acid was known; in 1901, the research on the synthesis of polypropionate was completed; in 1927, the aforementioned synthetic method was used to try industrial manufacturing; in 1937, the industrial manufacturing of methyl methacrylate was successfully developed, and it entered large-scale manufacturing. Because of its excellent toughness and light transmittance, it was used in aircraft windshields and tank vision mirrors during World War II. The most common mobile phone screens were made of optical-grade acrylic.

       Acrylic sheets are mainly used for carving, decoration, and crafts. Extrusion type is usually used for advertising signs, light boxes, etc. PMMA has the advantages of light weight, low price, and easy molding. Its molding methods include casting, injection molding, machining, thermoforming and so on. Especially for injection molding, it can be mass produced, the manufacturing process is simple, and the cost is low. Therefore, its application is becoming more and more extensive. It is widely used in instrument and meter parts, automobile lights, optical lenses, transparent pipes, etc.

With the construction of hotels, guesthouses and high-end residential buildings in big cities, lighting bodies have developed rapidly. The lighting bodies made of plexiglass extruded panels have the characteristics of high overall structural strength, light weight, high light transmittance and good safety performance. Compared with inorganic glass lighting devices, it has great advantages.

       In terms of sanitary ware, plexiglass can be used to make bathtubs, washbasins, dressing tables and other products. Because the plexiglass bathtub has the characteristics of luxurious appearance, deep feeling, easy to clean, high strength, light weight and comfortable use, it has been widely used.
