Properties of acrylic

As clear as glass, half the weight, and without optical distortion, acrylic became a popular material soon after it was trademarked in 1933. Branded acrylic is also known for its other material properties:

One of its defining quality features is its extraordinary light transmittance of 92% in a colorless material. This means that acrylic sheets allow light to pass through while providing protection from the harmful effects of UV radiation.

Acrylic sheets have UPF 50+ (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) for the highest level of UV protection. Acrylic is composed entirely of very strong and UV-stable molecules. Experts in the field call this a "natural UV stabilizing technology." The advantage is that it does not need to be coated with UV protection, like many other materials. Therefore, the entire material is UV-resistant, not just the surface.

One of the most important quality characteristics of acrylic products is that almost all transparent solid sheets, multi-skin sheets, corrugated sheets, blocks, tubes and rods will not turn yellow over a long period of time and maintain their high transparency. Leyu Acrylic even offers a 30-year guarantee on this. Overall, the material is very strong, durable, and weather-resistant, and even after many years, it still looks like new.

Acrylic has many more attractive properties: In its purest form, it is absolutely transparent, which means it can be colored with great precision. There are currently over 80 colors available with different finishes and high functionality. Specially developed variants perform extremely well at conducting light, while others are able to withstand extreme pressure, while still others offer thermal or acoustic protection.

Acrylic is 100% recyclable

Using different recycling processes, polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) - the chemical name for acrylic acid - can be broken down into its original components, instantly forming pure PMMA again. This approach makes acrylic products not only fully recyclable, but fully recyclable. This circular economy only works for a very limited amount of plastic, it saves resources and helps avoid waste.

How are acrylic panels produced

Acrylic panels are produced in two ways: methyl methacrylate (MMA) is poured between two pieces of glass and cured, or it is extruded out of polymerized MMA (PMMA). The two processes produce different acrylic products, however, they have similar properties.

Casting: Producing acrylic sheets

The process of producing solid sheets of acrylic is called casting. Liquid MMA monomer is pumped into a typical mold, which consists of two glass plates held apart by a flexible spacer or spacer. The height of the separator therefore largely determines the thickness of the subsequently formed sheet. The required volume of reaction solution is then filled into the chamber through the opening of this spacer. During this process, the chamber is held at an angle in the frame so that air bubbles can escape.

The polymerization takes place in a chamber. This means solidifying liquid monomer into solid flakes through a temperature-controlled process or a chemical initiator-controlled process. After polymerization is complete, the glass plate and spacer are removed from the acrylic plate. The sheets are then covered with masking film, cut to standard size, and stacked on pallets.

Solid sheets of acrylic with matte or textured surfaces are produced as above, using appropriate glass sheets.

Extrusion: Producing acrylic sheets

Acrylic solid sheets are produced using an extrusion process. Acrylic pellets or molding compound are melted in a heated cylinder and pressed through a mold by a screw conveyor that rotates in the cylinder, somewhat similar to a meat grinder. The acrylic solid sheet obtains its final shape and surface in subsequent calibrations, usually in a multi-roller calender.

In a multi-roller calender, the surface of the temperature control roller determines the surface of the plate, and the exit roll gap determines the thickness of the plate. After calibration, extruded acrylic solid sheets are covered with masking film, cut to size, and stacked on pallets.

Polyskin and corrugated sheets as well as rods and tubes are produced by the extrusion process.

Classic Supported On 3-Sides Window Swimming Pool

What is the classic supported three-sided window swimming pool?

Classic Supported On 3-Sides Window Swimming Pool is a remarkable architectural feature that combines elegance and functionality. The classic three sided window swimming pool is designed with acrylic panels on the three walls, also known as a U-shaped swimming pool.

The classic supported on 3-sides window swimming pool offers a visually stunning experience for swimmers and spectators alike. The transparent walls provide an unobstructed view of the surrounding landscape, creating a seamless connection between the indoor and outdoor spaces. Whether it's nestled within a lush garden or overlooking a breathtaking cityscape, this type of swimming pool allows individuals to enjoy their surroundings while engaging in recreational activities.

From a functional perspective, the three-sided support structure ensures stability and safety. By utilizing strong materials such as reinforced glass or acrylic panels, architects can create secure enclosures that withstand water pressure effectively. This structural integrity enables individuals to swim with peace of mind, knowing that they are protected by reliable construction methods.

Moreover, the classic supported on 3-sides window swimming pool promotes natural lighting and ventilation. The transparent walls allow sunlight to penetrate into the space during daytime hours, reducing reliance on artificial lighting sources. Additionally, fresh air circulation is enhanced through strategic placement of windows or vents around the perimeter of the pool area.

In conclusion, Classic Supported On 3-Sides Window Swimming Pool represents an innovative approach towards combining aesthetics with functionality in architecture. Its ability to seamlessly integrate indoor and outdoor spaces while ensuring stability makes it an attractive choice for those seeking both visual appeal and practicality in their swimming pools.

Acrylic panels are not brittle like tempered glass and therefore you will never have a crack or have a“spiderweb” ding on your window or custom pools design.

Acrylic is second to none when it comes to“repairs” and “Installation”. If glass is scratched it can not be repaired where acrylic can be repolished and refinished without draining water.

Acrylic has the same refractive index as water so the thickness of the panel is not apparent when you are looking through it. It appears as paper thin.

Durability of an outdoor acrylic pool panel is almost unbreakable and impact resistant.

Acrylic can bring any imagination to life with the ease of formability.

Unlimited size and scaleability.

Visibility and clarity is unbeatable as acrylic allows 92% of light transmission.

Ability to create acrylic walls that look nice on sea through swimming pools.

How to treat villa swimming pool water

One thing that should be paid special attention to when designing a villa swimming pool is that the water in the swimming pool should always be kept clear. Many people suffer from skin diseases and other things as a result of swimming in unclean swimming pools. Therefore, if you build a swimming pool in a villa, you must keep the water clean. Therefore, the swimming pool must be equipped with a swimming pool filtration water treatment system, a swimming pool disinfection system, and a swimming pool cleaning and suction system to keep the water quality of the swimming pool clear!

What issues should we pay attention to when using "acrylic swimming pool"?

Acrylic swimming pools are also called methacrylic swimming pools and plexiglass swimming pools. Plexiglas has the reputation of "Plastic Queen" and "Plastic Crystal", and has high transparency, with a light transmittance of 92%. The physical properties of acrylic determine that it is the best choice for transparent swimming pool materials.

Durability: The acrylic swimming pool project has excellent protection for the built-in light source and extends the service life of the light source product.

Weather resistance: The panel is coated with high-concentration ultraviolet absorber and the metal base is sprayed with imported automotive paint, which can maintain long-term weather resistance and never fade, with a service life of 5 to 8 years.

Impact resistance: 200 times that of glass products, with almost no risk of breakage.

Energy saving: good light transmittance, correspondingly reduce the number of light source products, save electricity and reduce use costs.
