A lamp made of plexiglass processing
In 2017, industrial design master Karim Rashid designed a lamp named TooT for the Italian lighting brand Kundalini.
TooT lamp was originally composed of several transparent plexiglass tubes, which are crystal clear and have a good light transmission effect, but Karim considers that the light does not need to be too bright, A metal painting process is added to the surface of the lamp tube.
The whole space has a quiet and soft feeling under the light of warm colors.
This light fixture made of plexiglass can be used as a chandelier hanging in the living room or as a table lamp by the bed, with an elegant shape.
The board surface made of plexiglass is crystal clear. PMMA is commonly known as plexiglass, acrylic and so on. The chemical name is polymethyl methacrylate. Due to the shortcomings of PMMA surface hardness, easy scratching, low impact resistance, poor molding fluidity, etc., the modification of PMMA has appeared one after another.
such as the copolymerization of methyl methacrylate with styrene and butadiene, the blending of PMMA and PC, etc. Plexiglass processing is obtained by copolymerizing methyl methacrylate and styrene. If a small amount of nitrile rubber (about 50%) is added to 372 plexiglass, it can become 373 plexiglass.
The flow of PMMA is worse than that of PS and ABS, and the melt viscosity is more sensitive to temperature changes. During the molding process, the melt viscosity is mainly changed from the injection temperature. PMMA is an amorphous polymer with a melting temperature greater than 160°C and a decomposition temperature of 270°C.
