Pure acrylic artificial stone, composite acrylic artificial stone and unsaturated resin, what are the characteristics and differences of these three things that look similar?

Acrylic artificial stone is divided into pure acrylic artificial stone and composite acrylic artificial stone, which is completely different from unsaturated resin, mainly reflected in the composition and performance.

The main material of pure acrylic board is made by polymerizing methyl methacrylate (MMA) and high-quality aluminum hydroxide powder. The whole board does not contain resin, only methyl methacrylate. The colorfulness, consistency of internal and external quality, environmental protection and the integrity of the finished product dissolve in one. At the same time, it has the characteristics of high hardness, good strength, impervious discoloration, not easy to crack, and stable color; it is the most suitable for kitchen countertops. Good choice.

Composite acrylic board is a substitute for high-quality resin board. The material composition is to add about 20% of acrylic, aluminum hydroxide and 65% of particles to high-quality resin, and other materials account for about 2% (depending on different colors). Composite acrylic has the advantages of both resin board and pure acrylic board. It has the elegance of natural marble, the hardness of granite, and the delicate and warm feeling of wood. At the same time, it is colorful, non-radioactive, and safe to use. It is also a type of countertop promoted by major brand cabinets.

Unsaturated polyester resin is a kind of thermosetting resin. When it is under the action of heat or initiator, it can be cured into an insoluble and high-molecular network polymer. However, the mechanical strength of this polymer is very low, can not meet the requirements of most uses, when reinforced with glass fiber, it can become a composite material, commonly known as glass steel. The mechanical strength and other properties of FRP have been greatly improved compared to resin cast bodies.
