The polymerizability of acrylic acid was discovered in 1872; the polymerizability of methacrylic acid was known in 1880; the research on the synthesis of propylene polypropionate was completed in 1901; the aforementioned synthetic method was used to try industrial production; Manufacturing development is successful, and thus enters large-scale manufacturing.

During World War II, because of its excellent toughness and light transmission, it was first applied to windshields of aircrafts, and to the sight glass of the driver's cabin of tanks. The birth of the world's first acrylic bathtub in 1948 marked the application of acrylic into a new milestone.

Acrylic has a history of more than 100 years. But it was too late to enter the Chinese market, so who was the first person to open the acrylic market in mainland China?

At that time, the domestic "organic glass" production technology was lagging behind, resulting in inferior quality, which was far from the world average. As a result, the impression that acrylic was a low-quality plastic product in China was deeply rooted. Mr. Wang Juan, with his rich industry knowledge and experience in the acrylic industry for more than 40 years, knows that acrylic is a very excellent plastic.

In order to completely change the image of acrylic in the market and in the hearts of consumers, and re-establish a new image of acrylic materials in New China, at the same time, he also hopes to be an acrylic industry with a new Chinese characteristic that is different from the Taiwan acrylic industry. "Acrylic" was changed to "Acrylic". And founded his own company to vigorously promote acrylic.

Since then, acrylic boards have developed rapidly in the sign industry, almost monopolizing the production of the advertising sign industry. At that time, the most fashionable material for these signage projects was acrylic sheet, and all the logo images of door heads were made with new acrylic sheet. With the gradual upgrading of raw materials and processes, the types of acrylic boards have gradually been enriched, including the widely popular acrylic casting boards, extruded boards and other products.
