Polymethyl methacrylate, commonly known as acrylic glass, is a synthetic resin produced through the free radical polymerization of the monomer methyl methacrylate. It can be processed using various methods such as injection molding, compression molding, and extrusion or casting.

PMMA is cost-effective, transparent, rigid, durable, and highly resistant to ultraviolet (UV) light and weathering. It has low moisture absorption, contributing to dimensional stability. Additionally, PMMA offers advantages such as enhanced light transmission, a wide range of coloring options, improved optical clarity, versatility, and tensile strength.

It is also environmentally friendly, containing no toxic materials or heavy metals that can cause pollution. Consequently, PMMA finds widespread applications in industries such as automotive, construction, electrical and electronics, marine, healthcare, and agriculture.
