Acrylic (ACRYLIC), commonly known as specially treated plexiglass. Acrylic research and development has a history of more than 100 years. Polymerization of acrylic acid was first discovered in 1872; polymerization of methacrylic acid was known in 1880; synthesis of acrylic polypropionate was completed in 1901; industrialization was attempted in 1927 with the above synthesis method; and industrial manufacture of methyl ester was successfully developed in 1937, which led to large-scale manufacture. During World War II, because of its excellent toughness and transparency, acrylic was first applied to the windshield of aircraft and the field of vision mirror of the driver's cab of tanks. The birth of the world's first acrylic bathtub in 1948 marks a new milestone in the application of acrylic.
