PMMA is a transparent thermoplastic, often used as a lightweight or shatter-resistant alternative to glass. It is sometimes called acrylic glass or Plexiglas. Chemically, it is the synthetic polymer of methyl methacrylate. PMMA is an acrylate polymer with an ester-group. This feature can be used to modify the surface chemically.
