PMMA has special characteristics that meet the requirements of medical applications like chemical analysis basins and drug-screening devices.
Its properties include:
- exceptional transparency,
- optical clarity,
- excellent fluidity,
- surface durability,
- and it is highly adapted for sterilization with gamma rays or ethylene oxide.
Plus, Altuglas® acrylic glass:
- is easy to machine,
- has great dimensional stability
- and can be combined (glued/welded) with PMMA or other polymers.
