Glass, and yet no glass: PMMA
What is acrylic glass or also Plexiglas®? Because we put the question here, the answer can only be PMMA plastic, that is, polymethylmethacrylate. Although this is not glass, the product is called acrylic glass, because it has similar properties.
Acrylic glass is either poured as so-called GS glass or extruded. It is then called XT. GS is considered here to be more stable and impact-proof.
PMMA is found, for example, as sheets - glass substitute -, in the form of the early contact lenses and in many other areas. Because this material has similar properties as glass, PMMA can also be processed and finished with laser technology.
