Röhm is showcasing plexiglas, pleximid and cyrolite molding compounds at Fakuma 2023.

“Since its invention 90 years ago, Plexiglas has helped shape countless everyday products and has played a role in many groundbreaking innovations,” comments Siamak Djafarian, Senior Vice President at the Molding Compounds business unit. “We are always thrilled to see our material being used in new applications and, in coordination with our business partners, to develop products with specific properties tailored to their industry requirements.”

One key and intrinsic property of plexglas is growing in importance in every application: This long-lasting and high-quality plastic is fully recyclable, making it perfectly suited to the circular economy – one of the key focus topics of Fakuma 2023.

Using a thermal process, the PMMA polymer can be reverted to the MMA monomer time and again, which in turn is used as a raw material for the polymerization of Plexiglas.
