Running head: PMMA POLYMER
Polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA polymer) is one of a member of huge family belonging to
Consequently, this ester has an attachment of R from the alkyl or aryl group and can be
substituted with all kinds of reactive and less reactive substances.
PMMA polymer is of commercial importance with a range of acrylic polymers derived from
Polymethyl methacrylate has a glass transmission property that occurs as a result of the
acoustic spectrum at 390K.
The polymer reactions of PMMA is associated with the determination of the thermal stability
characteristics of PMMA polymers.
Consequently, PMMA polymer prepared by anionic mechanisms tends to be more stable than
that prepared through the free radical process.
PMMA Polymer has been a lightweight synthetic material that has an economic advantage
and has been applied as an alternative to polycarbonate in areas where high strength is not
In the applications for engineering, a range of substances from homeware, automotive
electronic displays as well as cosmetic packing and lighting.
Optical lenses have also applied uses of PMMA polymer.
Manufacture of kitchen accessory and furniture has embraced uses of SUMIPEX PMMA
following the aesthetic advantages and scratch resistant properties of the substance.
Electronics domain varies its optical properties through uses of PMMA polymers. In this
case, there has been a rising demand for robust and excellent optical clarity of electronics.
LED televisions have employed production of Light Guide Panels, as well as notebooks,
tablets, and infrared transmitters, have been modified through using PMMA polymers for
The packaging of cosmetics requires use of lightweight, stable and recyclable materials.
Unlike other metallic containers, PMMA polymers are non-toxic and result in a little hazard
to the environment making their recycling property to be possible.
The modern lighting has seen improvements from the previous lighting techniques used in
Another application of PMMA polymer is the manufacture of wind...
