polymethyl-methacrylate
331
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. The polymer also has a wide use in the medical area, for its good degree of compatibility with human tissue.
