Why acrylic glass plate material is useful there are signs from aluminum, stainless steel, glass and many other materials. But above all a material to be lit here since it is relatively robust, looks good and is very needed in the production of signs. Why this is so, should be included in the following article a little under the microscope. Polymethyl methacrylate, known as acrylic or Plexiglas as made for the production of signs seems better. This synthetic, organic material is thermoplastic, i.e. This means the acrylic glass deforms under certain heat influences what is but reversible. These deformations of the acrylic glass does not take place but under the normal temperature of the outside world, but only under extreme conditions of over 100 C.
Acrylic has only caused the property to be impact-resistant, and is unfortunately only in comparison with other thermoplastic materials scratches and cautious and extreme care should be treated in accordance with these properties. The other sign materials cut in these Points better off. Why manufactures one signs still made of acrylic glass? Other chemical and physical properties make the acrylic glass really ideal for the manufacture of signs. So the acrylic glass plate can be mounted safely outside, because acrylic has a resistance to acid and alkali. Acrylic glass is also solid against petrol and oil so that the acrylic glass plates in the field long and reliable can prove. Also the resistance to weathering and aging resistance of acrylic glass signs is useful for this purpose. This is caused by the structure of the acrylic glass, because this is pure alipathisch, which means it consists only of carbon and hydrogen, is so organic, but not aromatic.
In addition the polymer chains of the acrylic glass are shielded sterically, which means that the large molecules of the acrylic glass by its spatial extent prevent reactions. The acrylic glass plate should not be treated only with alcohol or solvents, as alcohols, acetone and Benzone can attack the acrylic glass. Thus, the robustness of the acrylic glass plate would be secured, but in processing the acrylic glass is ideal, because it is thanks to its structure very good engraving and also a precise and beautiful coloring is possible. The chemistry is right. It also looks good? Look good but even should the acrylic glass plate. There is another feature of acrylic glass in the foreground. Acrylic glass is namely very good translucent, allowing the shield look very good. But acrylic glass absorbs UV light and thus is protected before fading. Also a plexiglass shield looks very high-quality what polished edges even more impressed. The acrylic glass sign doesn’t matter so as created as an advertising medium whatsoever, whether now outdoors or indoors it looks just fine and high quality, is a reliable information carrier and is often relative to other signs and marking options due to the favorable chemical and physical properties.
