Sumipex® (PMMA), also known as acrylic, is an amorphous engineering thermoplastic that has the greatest surface hardness out of all thermoplastics. It is often used as a lightweight alternative to (silica-based) glass, or as a more economic alternative to polycarbonate. In addition to its uses as a glass substitute, acrylic is used in the medical, packaging and point of purchase application spaces.
ResMart stocks a wide variety of transparent Sumipex® acrylic grades that are suitable for extrusion or injection molding applications. The portfolio grades vary by impact performance, regulatory listings and melt flow rate. We can also help you get a tailor-made product should one of our stock portfolio products not meet your exact needs. Contact us to learn more!
