We mostly use thermoplastic materials such as PMMA (Polymethyl methacrylate), ABS (Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene), SAN (Styrene acrylonitrile), PC (polycarbonate), MOPLEN (Polypropylene).
These materials allow the widest creative design possibilities in carrying out the most diversified forms and surfaces (polished, transparent, crystal effect, opaque, satinazed, sandblasted, neutral and coloured); moreover they are light but very resistant at the same time: heat-proof, shock-proof, deformation-proof, scratch-proof, abrasion-proof. The thermoplastic material is therefore able to supply the widest performances: functionality, practicality and aesthetic keep up with one another. And business always becomes pleasure: from kitchen utensils to furnishing components or thermal hydraulic accessories.
In many applications, thermoplastics substitute glass very well, granting great economic advantages.
The materials used in products for food are certified, a guarantee of their being non-toxic and hygienic.
What is PMMA (Polymethyl methacrylate)
PMMA is the abbreviation of polymethyl methacrylate, known as methacrylate. It is a thermoplastic used for its multiple qualities:
- Extraordinary shock-proof capacity (ten times more resistant than glass)
- Very high light transmittance coefficient (92%), allowing an almost total transparency, even with high thickness. With glass, on the contrary, the higher is the thickness the lower the transparency.
- Excellent protection against ultraviolet rays.
- Minimum maintenance (for the self-cleaning surface).
- Maximum resistance to heat, scratches, abrasions, water.
- Many possibilities of aesthetic combinations. Methacrylate matches well with chromium-plated, golden, polished, opaque inserts, or with other kinds of materials such as wood, baked clay, steel.
These characteristics make methacrylate an increasingly used material even for very thick items, whose processing requires professional skills and specific equipment. The processing of very thick methacrylate is a complex one and requires high professional skills to avoid imperfections such as bubbles, shrinkages, and other aesthetic defects of various kinds. Only a few firms can carry out this processing. Tecnoplastica is among them.
