Acrylic, polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) is a naturally transparent material; with the ability to transmit light similar to glass. It has high strength, toughness, heat resistance, and excellent dimensional and color stability. The Acrylic material is a hard and clear material with limited chemical resistance. Acrylic raw material comes in standard grade and FDA grades are available. The natural color of the raw material is clear; colorant can be added to the raw material to meet the customer’s needs. These materials, in their natural state, are heavier water, meaning it will sink in water. The ball blanks can be manufactured by injection molding or CNC lathe operation.
