In addition to medical devices, lighting equipment and housewares are other commonly produced items. Because of the high light transmittance of acrylics, over 90 percent, which makes it comparable to glass of optical quality, optically clear plastics obtained by acrylic injection moulding can successfully stand exposure to ultraviolet radiation, and when they are exposed to light that does not result to discolouration or fading.
Because acrylics have no odour or taste, they are widely used to manufacture refrigerator drawers and different food storage containers via acrylic injection moulding. The properties of acrylics can be changed when copolymerisation is effected. When ABS is added, that results in higher impact strength; when polycarbonate is added, the obtained impact strength is higher than that of sheer polycarbonate. However, that with the reduction in the ambient temperature the impact strength of both acrylics and their copolymers is reduced accordingly.
