A lot of materials have been used to process furniture in the interior design industry, such as wood, plastic, glass, etc. Among them is Acrylic material, also known as high gloss wood or high gloss Acrylic wood. This is a new, youthful and modern material that has been applied more and more widely in life. Let’s find out more about Acrylic with Livas in this article.
What is Acrylic?
Acrylic is a widely used material in interior construction. In Vietnam, we cannot produce this type of material, but have to import it from Australia and Spain.
The scientific name of Acrylic is PMMA (poly (methyl)-methacrylate). This is a type of plastic material derived from compounds in petroleum refining. This material comes in a wide variety of colors, from transparent to wood grain, and even in highlight colors.
In Vietnam, Acrylic is often called Mica, and is a decorative surface, pressed onto specialized engineered wood panels in the construction and production of furniture. This is a highly flexible, malleable plastic that is easy to shape products into a variety of designs.
An Acrylic sheet is usually composed of 3 layers, including an ABS plastic core, a transparent plastic layer and an outer finish to help provide scratch resistance and aesthetics for the product. This structure ensures that the Acrylic sheet may offer transparency, beautiful gloss, flat and smooth surface, and enhanced aesthetics and values to the interior products.
Features of Acrylic sheets
With an abundance of colors, high gloss, beautiful and bright surface, Acrylic sheets give users various choices. When using materials for interior design, you can combine monochromatic colors or metallic, wood grain Acrylic to create accents for your house’s living space.
With high durability, color persistence over time, and high-gloss surface, Acrylic will help bring your living space a luxurious, modern, green, clean and environment-friendly feeling with quick construction.
This material is resistant to both ultraviolet rays as well as high physical impacts during machining. The structure of the surface is anti-scratch, smooth and dust-free, making it easier for users to clean, and the deep mirror reflection gives us a feeling of expansion, creating a modern and luxurious space.
Smart applications of Acrylic sheets
Acrylic sheets have wide applications in both interior and exterior design with a fresh and modern style.
In addition to the popularity in the interior design industry, Acrylic sheets are also widely used for making advertising signboards and product display shelves.
You can easily encounter advertising signboards made of Acrylic material with diverse colors and rich designs on national highways or expressways. Nowadays, this type of outdoor advertising has become very popular in life, so many businesses have made a wise choice of Acrylic materials for their signboards, as Acrylic comes with a variety of colors and outstanding heat and force resistance.
In addition, Acrylic materials are also used to make display shelves for product introduction and advertising in supermarkets or convenience stores, thus making the display products more eye-catching and attractive to customers.
In the furniture industry, Acrylic sheets are often used for common household items such as tables and chairs, beds, cabinets, etc., especially those to be used in environments with high humidity, like partitions, kitchen cabinets, the items located near the sink or toilet door, etc. Furniture made with Acrylic panels is usually highly durable with good heat resistance and impact resistance, bringing a better secure feeling for you and your family.
As it is a new, youthful and modern material, Acrylic is widely used for high-class interior designs such as furniture and appliances in villas, high-class apartments or houses of families with high living conditions…, adding to your living space a sense of dynamism, modernity and luxury.
