In the prototype industry, acrylic prototype, also known as PMMA prototype, is a kind of transparent prototype material. Acrylic hand plate is mainly made by cnc processing. The transparent effect of acrylic is relatively good, and the transmittance of acrylic can reach 95%. Acrylic material has been widely used in the manufacture of prototype. Let’s take a look at the advantages and disadvantages of acrylic prototype:
Advantages of Acrylic prototype:
acrylic prototype has good processing performance, can be used not only hot molding, but also by machining. Transparent acrylic sheet has comparable light transmittance with glass, but the density is only half of that of glass. Its wear resistance is close to that of aluminum, its stability is good, and it is resistant to corrosion of many kinds of chemicals. The acrylic board has good printing and spraying properties, and the ideal surface decoration effect of acrylic products can be given by using appropriate printing and spraying technology.
The prototype made of acrylic material has crystal transparency, the light transmittance can reach more than 92%, the light is soft, the vision is clear, and the acrylic prototype colored with dye has a good color development effect.
Shortcomings of Acrylic prototype:
It is known that the glass is very brittle, acrylic is an organic glass, so its physical characteristics are also very brittle, this disadvantage of poor toughness causes the acrylic not to be carefully broken, and in the process of making the hand plate, it is necessary to avoid it, so it can only be replaced with other materials, Such as a pc.
