Lucite Acylic
Arkema Group Plexiglas® MI7 Acrylic
Categories: Polymer; Thermoplastic; Acrylic (PMMA); Acrylic, Impact Modified, Molded

Material Notes: Plexiglas® MI7 is an impact modified thermoplastic acrylic resin formulated for injection molding and extrusion applications. It is heat resistant, has high melt flow and provides 7 times the impact resistance of standard acrylics while maintaining excellent optical properties. It offers an excellent balance between melt flow and increased resistance to breakage, while providing weatherability superior to that provided by other high-impact plastics. Supplemental moldflow simulation data is available.

Appearance: Clear/Transparent; Colors Available; Opaque; Translucent

Characteristics: High Heat Resistance; High Clarity; Scratch Resistant; Good Color Stability; Good Dimensional Stability; Low Shrinkage; Good Thermal Stability; Good UV Resistance; Good Weather Resistance; Good Toughness; Medium Impact Resistance; Good Flow

Applications: Automotive Exterior Parts; Lighting Diffusers
