Is acrylic fragile?

   Acrylic research and development has a history of more than one hundred years. First of all, it was applied to the windshield of aircraft and the vision mirror of tank driver's cab during World War II. By 1984, the world's first acrylic bathtub was born, and it gradually developed to all walks of life.


  Acrylic is a special kind of glass, but it is not easy to break. If it is impacted too much, it will break. After the broken place is pasted with special acrylic glue, the broken mark is not obvious, and it can generally be restored to its original appearance, which is one of the advantages of acrylic.


Acrylic molecular chain segments are arranged in a very orderly way, which makes the toughness of the material very good. If the acrylic plate is penetrated with metal, the acrylic will break, but it will not break into one piece like glass. Acrylic has good light transmission performance and looks like glass. Although it has high hardness and is not easy to break, it is easy to be scratched. Pay attention when using it.
