Advantages and disadvantages of polymethylmethacrylate

2023-09-13

Advantages: polymethylmethacrylate is the best new material for manufacturing sanitary ware after ceramics. Compared with traditional ceramic materials, polymethylmethacrylate not only has unparalleled high brightness, but also has the following advantages: good toughness, not easily damaged; It is highly restorative and can be cleaned by dipping soft foam into toothpaste; The texture is soft, and there is no biting cold in winter; Bright colors can meet the individual pursuits of different tastes. Using polymethylmethacrylate to make basins, bathtubs, and toilets not only has exquisite design and durability, but also has environmental protection effects. Its radiation level is similar to that of the human body's own bones. polymethylmethacrylate sanitary ware first appeared in the United States and has accounted for over 70% of the entire international market.


Disadvantages: Due to the difficulty and high cost of producing polymethylmethacrylate, there are many high-quality, low-cost substitutes in the market. These substitutes, also known as "organic glass", are actually ordinary organic panels or composite panels (also known as sandwich panels). Ordinary organic board is cast with ordinary polymethylmethacrylate cracking material and pigment, with low surface hardness and easy fading. The polishing effect is poor after polishing with fine sand. The composite board has only a thin layer of polymethylmethacrylate on the surface and ABS plastic in the middle. It is easy to delaminate due to thermal expansion in use.
