PMMA is often used as an alternative to glass, it is often preferred because of its higher impact strength, easy handling and processing, and low cost. Scratches may easily be removed by polishing.
PMMA has excellent environmental stability compared to other plastics such as polycarbonate, and is therefore often the material of choice for outdoors applications.
PMMA transmits up to 93% of visible light (per metre)
