Acrylic Plastic

Acrylic plastic is a highly versatile material that is made from the organic compound known as acrylonitrile. Acrylic is a very lightweight plastic that is very clear, resistant to impact and UV radiation and is an excellent thermal insulator. Some of the most common uses of this material include plastic furniture, electronics, automotive parts and art supplies.

Polymethyl Methacrylate

One of the most popular applications of this material is the use of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) in electronic products such as television screens. Acrylic is a widely recyclable material, which means that is can be melted down and reformed into new products over and over again. In fact, the process of recycling acrylic is very similar to that of glass. However, because it is so lightweight, it is important to make sure that it is properly sorted before being sent for recycling. Otherwise, it could end up in landfill where it will contribute to the plastic pollution problem.
