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,
  • chemical-resistance
  • 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.
Transparent, chemical-resistant and able to withstand sterlization with gamma rays or ethylene oxide, Altuglas® meets the demands of medical analysis applications.
