Polymethyl methacrylate [PMMA] is the scientific name of acrylic glass.
It is a transparent thermoplastic material usually used in sheets. It is applicable where natural glass can not be fitted, as well as in emergency situations.
The material was commercialised for the first time by Rohm and Haas Company in 1933, under the trademark Plexiglass. Since then, it has been made available on the market under several brand names such as Acrylite, Lucite, Perspex, Optix, Altuglas, Oroglas and Acrylic.
Acrylic glass does not shatter but it breaks into large pieces instead. It is softer compared to the standard glass and is easily scratched.
Tractor Glass company uses this material. It comes in plastic sheets with varying thickness (3, 4 and 5 mm) and we can fit it where necessary. Following measurements in our workshop, we cut, grind, drill holes for accessories and fit the Plexglass panels solving your problem.
