2017-08-19

PC(Polycarbonate)and PMMA(Acrylic)material are popular in prototyping.But how to choose the most suitable material for your project?Please refer to the following comparative analysis by our engineers.

 

1) Price:About sheet material price,PMMA is higher than PC.If clients have special requirements,imported PMMA is also a good choice.

2) Properties: PC material has better heat resistance and toughness.

3) Finish:Fumigation is often used to make PC clear,but high polish is better for PMMA.

4) Effect: PMMA is more transparent compared to PC. Light transmittance of PMMA can be reached 95%,but only 75% for PC.For the prototype parts of lens,PMMA is more suitable than PC.

 

All in all,if you need the parts with high strength and transparency,PC is better.PMMA is the best for good appearance.
