Methyl methacrylate (MMA) is a clear, colorless liquid, which is the essential building block for all acrylic. MMA is used an ingredient for a wide range of applications. It can also be polymerized to create pMMA, which is used for a whole range of products, including acrylic sheet such as LuciteLux®, our own branded material. In its simplest form, acrylic sheet is a highly transparent plastic that is often used as an alternative to glass due to its lightweight and shatter resistant capabilities.

How is our acrylic sheet produced?

Lucite International uses two manufacturing methods to produce its branded LuciteLux® line of products – continuous and cell cast. These give users the ultimate choice and best optics, craze resistance and thermal qualities available in the acrylic market. Each production method creates a different combination of performance factors in the finished sheet.

CHOOSE CELL CAST CHOOSE CONTINUOUS CAST
for the optimum optical performance, chemical resistance and the highest molecular weight. for excellent thickness tolerance, mid-level molecular weight and physical, thermal and optical properties equivalent to cell cast.
