The difference between 100% acrylic solid surface and modified acrylic solid surface as follow:
A). UPR means Unsaturated Polyester Resin
B). MMA means Methyl Methacrylate
C). [AL(OH)3] means Hydrated Aluminum Oxide Powder
Modified acrylic solid surface is basically consist of UPR, MMA, and [AL(OH)3]. There are about the ratio of 8~10% MMA, about 26% UPR including 0.3% Anti-UV resin and 63% [AL(OH)3]
100% acrylic solid surface is basically consist of 43% MMA, 555% [AL(OH)3] and the natural pigment.
The 100% acrylic is harder than modified acrylic. The modified acrylic of barthel hardness is about 58~60. The 100% acrylic is about 70.
More than 80 centigrade for modified acrylic material ,Bending diameter about 450mm .More than 120 centigrade for 100% acrylic solid surface,About one hour. It can be bent into any shape.
The shock resistance, pressure resistance, bending resistance, Absorbency and so on of 100% acrylic is better than Modified acrylic.
The 100% acrylic of yellowing resistance, heat resistance, soiling resistance, acidity, basicityof resistance is better than Modified acrylic
6.How check which is 100% acrylic or Modified acrylic
1.You can burn a little samples. The 100% acrylic will distribute the perfume, The Modified is odorous
2.Cut the sheets. The 100% acrylic is easy to cut, But, Modified is not. Besides, When you cut 100% acrylic , the material just like snow piece. But, Modified has more dust.
