The acrylic products commonly seen by people are acrylic products which are made of raw materials such as acrylic particles, plates or resins through various processing methods and assembled with various materials and functional parts. As for acrylic fiber, acrylic cotton, acrylic yarn, acrylic nylon, etc., which are commonly heard, refer to the man-made fiber polymerized from acrylic acid, which is not related to acrylic products.

Among them, the acrylic plate is often referred to as polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) plate, which is polymerized from "methyl methacrylate monomer (MMA)". Or it is extruded from acrylic particles by a extruder. In the past, the board was commonly known as plexiglass. Acrylic comes from English acrylic, which means PMMA board made of organic compound MMA. Its transparency and light transmittance are like glass. All plates made of transparent plastics such as PS, PC or poor recycled MMA are collectively referred to as plexiglass. In order to distinguish, PMMA board made of high-quality pure material MMA is specially named acrylic board, so as to distinguish it from general plexiglass board.
