About Polymethyl Methacrylate. Polymethyl Methacrylate (a.k.a. PMMA, Acrylic Glass) is a thermoplastic polymer primarily used as a substitute to glass, due to its transparency, tensile strength and UV tolerance. It is also an alternative to polycarbonate, especially due to PMMA’s low cost in comparison to its competitor. Additionally, the polymer has a wide use in the medical area, for its good degree of compatibility with human tissue.
