What are the Properties of Organic Glass
1. High transparency. Organic glass is the best transparent material of high molecular weight at present. The transmittance of organic glass is 92%, and the transmittance of glass is higher than that of glass. The lamp is called the artificial sun solar quartz is done, this is because the quartz can be completely through ultraviolet. Ordinary glass can only pass through 0.6% of the ultraviolet light, but the plexiglass can pass through 73%.
2. Light weight. The density of the organic glass is 1.18kg/dm3, the same size of material, with only half the weight of the ordinary glass, and 43% of the metal aluminum (belonging to the light metal).
3. easy to process. The organic glass can not only be cut by lathe, drilling machine, but also can be bonded into various shapes with acetone, chloroform and so on. It is also able to use plastic molding methods, such as blow molding, injection, extrusion, etc., to be processed into large aircraft cockpit covers, small to dentures and other various kinds of products.
4. High mechanical strength. The molecular weight of the organic glass is about 2 million, which is a long chain polymer, and the chain is very soft. Therefore, the strength of the plexiglass is higher, and the ability to resist tensile and impact resistance is 7~18 times higher than that of ordinary glass. Therefore, the strength of the plexiglass is higher, and the ability to resist tensile and impact resistance is 7~18 times higher than that of ordinary glass. There is a kind of organo glass treated by heating and stretching, in which the chain segments are arranged in a very order, making the toughness of the material significantly improved. Nail into this organic glass, even if the nail penetrates, the plexiglass does not produce cracks. This organic glass quilt will not break into fragments as well. Therefore, the tensile treated plexiglass can be used as a bulletproof glass, and also used as a cockpit cover on a military aircraft.
