Properties of polymethyl methacrylate and market on aquarium plexiglas

The polymers obtained by the polymerization of acrylic acid and its esters are collectively referred to as acrylic acid tree esters, and the corresponding plastics are collectively referred to as polyacrylic plastics, of which polymethyl methacrylate is the most widely used. Polymethyl methacrylate, abbreviated as PMMA, commonly known as plexiglass, is the most excellent texture and price of synthetic transparent materials.

Polymethyl methacrylate is a rigid hard colorless transparent material with a density of 1.18-1.19g/CM3, a small refractive index of about 1.49, a light transmittance of 92%, and a haze of not more than 2%, which is a high-quality organic transparent material.

Polymethyl methacrylate has good comprehensive mechanical properties, ranking first in general plastics, tensile, bending, compression, and other strength is higher than polyolefin but also higher than polystyrene, polyvinyl chloride, etc.; impact toughness is poor but also slightly better than polystyrene. The poured body polymerized polymethyl methacrylate sheet (such as aviation plexiglass sheet) has higher mechanical properties such as tensile, bending, and compression. It can reach the level of engineering plastics such as polyamide and polycarbonate.

Polymethyl methacrylate can resist diluting inorganic acids, but concentrated inorganic acids can make it eroded and resistant to alkalis. Still, warm sodium hydroxide and potassium hydroxide can make it corrosive, resistant to salts and greases, resistant to aliphatic hydrocarbons, insoluble in water, methanol, glycerol, etc., but can absorb alcohol swelling, and produce stress cracking, not resistant to ketones, chlorinated hydrocarbons, and aromatic hydrocarbons.

Polymethyl methacrylate has excellent atmospheric aging resistance. Its specimen has undergone four years of natural aging tests, weight change, tensile strength, light transmittance slightly reduced, color slightly yellowed, silver grain resistance decreased significantly, impact strength was slightly improved, and other physical properties almost unchanged.

Market Distribution of aquarium plexiglas

Based on region, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Latin America, Middle East & Africa. In 2021, the revenue share of Asia Pacific in aquarium plexiglas is promising. In 2019, the Asia-Pacific region led by China, Japan, and India became one of the most important aquarium plexiglas markets in the world. Expanding regional market can explain the rising demand for premium and exotic aquarium plexiglas.

Market Drivers for aquarium plexiglas

The aquarium plexiglas market is expected to grow at a substantial rate during the forecast period 2022 to 2029. In 2022, the market is growing at a steady rate and is expected to grow within the expected range as key players increasingly adopt strategies. Technological innovation and progress will further optimize the performance of the product, enabling it to gain wider application in the downstream market. Moreover, customer preference analysis, market dynamics (drivers, restraints, opportunities), new product launches, impact of COVID-19, regional conflicts, and carbon neutrality provide vital information for our in-depth study of the Product name market.

Positive Effects of aquarium plexiglas

A aquarium plexiglas can be a place for rescue, care and rehabilitation, where relevant research is conducted. Urbanization and modern lifestyles limit our opportunities, and aquarium plexiglas can be our places to relax and unwind. With its unique combination of scale, architecture, exhibition and experience, the product title attracts tourists to the city and keeps them there longer, creating greater economic benefits.

The aquarium plexiglas, like the Zoo, provides fun-filled leisure and entertainment activities that double as care and rehabilitation, scientific research, education and conservation centers.

In the process, aquarium plexiglas revitalize urban landscapes, enliven destination brands, attract tourists, create jobs and boost economic activity.

Successful aquarium plexiglas raise enough revenue to cover their costs, but their role goes far beyond profit creation.
