T Samples CRAZE RESISTANCE FLAMMABILITY3 SPECIFICATION COMPLIANCE Plastics Component QMFZ2.E39437 Flammability Classification Standard Specification for PMMA Acrylic Plastic Sheet Data given are average values and should not be used for specification purposes. 1. This property will change with thickness. The value given is for the thickness indicated in the column heading unless otherwise noted. 2. Tests performed on 0.125 thickness. 3. Flammability tests are small scale tests and may not be indicative of how materials will perform in an actual situation. 4. The values are after the material has been heated for forming. UV transmission at 300nm for Plexiglas G-UVT acrylic sheet and various commercial UVT type samples as a function of UVB exposure time. Reference test method ASTM G-154 Plexiglas acrylic plastic is a combustible thermoplastic. Observe fire precautions appropriate for comparable forms of wood and paper. For building uses check code approvals. Impact resistance is a factor of thickness. Avoid exposure to heat or aromatic solvents. Clean with soap and water. Avoid abrasives.
