Polymethyl-methacrylate (PMMA) is a polymer of methyl methacrylate. This transparent thermoplastic is better known as acrylic, or by one of its popular brand names: Plexiglass. We use this to make impressive plinths.
This almost invisible plinth can carry the weight of up to 25kg in its standard configuration, but we also make bespoke acrylic plinths capable of carrying much heavier weights. Please, do not hesitate to contact us for a cost quote and lead time on this at email@example.com
Acrylic is often used instead of glass, because of its obvious advantages: it is lightweight, hard to shatter, is more translucent and clearer than glass. Note that it has to be handled carefully though, since it can be scratched easier than glass. Acrylic creates a stunning floating effect for your artwork or product, visually emphasizing their characteristics and drawing people’s attention to them. It is equally beautiful used as a retail display or a museum pedestal.
