Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA)

Material properties

  • Scratch proof
  • Good UV resistance
  • Highly transparent
  • Good chemical resistance

Material used in luminaire construction

PMMA is a hard, transparent material which conducts light excellently - better than normal glass in fact! This optical property obviously lends itself to the production of luminaires.

Material in everyday use

Optics, e.g. spectacle lenses            
Motor vehicles, e.g. direction-indicator lens
