Stretched ACRYLITE® Meets Quality Specifications

Stretched sheets of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) from Röhm are now qualified to MIL-P-25690B in sheet thicknesses up to 0.800” (20.3 mm). The qualification attests to the chemical resistance of the material, its impact strength (for example against bird strikes), resistance to cracking and the fulfilment of optical requirements.
