Methyl Acrylic is the organic compound from which polymethylmethacrylate is obtained, also known as PMMA or acrylic glass. Some trademarks have also given the material names such as Plexiglas or Vitroflex®. The latter emerged as a product manufactured in Spain with technology imported from Germany at the end of the 50s. At the same time, the technology was already exported to Chile, where the first methacrylate factory with totally Spanish technology was set up. Its most frequent presentation in the plastics industry is in granules ('pellets' in English), in sheets or plates, tubes or rods. The granules are for the injection or extrusion process, the sheets for thermoforming or machining, as well as the tubes and rods.
Its most frequent presentation is in flat sheets or sheets obtained by extrusion or casting process. Acrylic is half the weight of glass, it is much more transparent (it can be colorless, colored, translucent or opaque). It is easily molded when hot, withstands up to a constant temperature of 90ºC, withstands the passage of time and exposure to the outside and solar radiation very well, and can be polished, ground, drilled or machined with simple tools.
