What is plexiglas made of?
It's a kind of plastic.
You can use the same drill you use for drilling metal. Answer: Yes you can use a metal drill bit, but you have to be very careful with Plexiglas when drilling, it can chip-out, break-out, or even crack the Plexiglas. The way to drill without no chip-out is to sandwich the Plexiglas between two pieces of wood. TIP: make sure the Plexiglas is held tight between the 2 pieces of wood when drilling.
Plexiglas was discovered by Walter Bauer and Otto Rohm of the Rohm and Haas company in Germany in 1933. some people, mostly Canadians, claim that William Chalmers discovered Plexiglas at McGill University, while a graduate student. He actually worked with an inferior plastic called poly(ethyl methacrylate) at a later date. Detailed references to the history of Plexiglas are available at the following link: https://sites.google.com/site/hjhatua
There are two types of glass: Tempered glass - The sides of the rink (as well as the team benches and penalty boxes) are lined with seamless, tempered glass. Tempering is an annealing process, involving successive heating and cooling, and makes glass harder and less brittle. Plexiglas - The ends of the rink are lined with Plexiglas -- acrylic plastic sheets. The Plexiglas sheets are fitted together with supports that are mounted on the outside…
Plexiglas has it's own proprietary adhesives. Most are essentially plexiglas melted in a liquid such as Methyl ethyl ketone. -Used properly this melts the edges together, -the smoother the cut edge, the better your joint will be. I smooth my edges on a planer. Adhesives for different uses with Plexiglass are IPS Weld On #4, #10 and #16. -Many of these are available in local plastics stores.
In traditional "wood lanes," the first 12 feet after the approach are comprised of maple planks. The next 46 feet are made up of pine. The last part, the pin deck, is maple again. In synthetic lanes, the entire lane is made from compressed paper with a layer of Plexiglas like covering and then the oil.
no, for example Granite is made of potassium feldspar, quartz, playgirls feldspar, bootie's, and amphibian Periodicity is composed of Pyroxene, Olivine, and Amphibian and maybe a very very very very small bit of Plexiglas feldspar so no they are not made of all the same minerals they are all different and they are not made of all the same minerals
Dr. Walter Bauer and Dr. Otto Rohm discovered Plexiglas in Germany. There are some claims that Dr. William Chalmers, a Canadian, was the inventor in 1931, but Chalmers did not study the material we know as Plexiglas and the discoveries of the German workers were well in advance of Chalmer's studies.

There are no portable air conditioner units with a window kit that will work for a casement window. Some customers have fashioned a solution using plexiglas to cover their entire window area and then have a small hole cut into the plexiglas for the hot air discharge hose. No solution is provided "out of the box" but some customers have fashioned their own.
Yes, this is a great way to exhaust a single hose portable air conditioner. You would simply need to adapt the hose connections to the front of your fireplace. I have seen an installation where the front of the fireplace was sealed with a piece of plexiglas. The plexiglas had been custom cut to fit the portable AC's fittings.
Per Wikipedia: "Poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) poly(methyl 2-methylpropenoate) is a thermoplastic and transparent plastic. Chemically, it is the synthetic polymer of methyl methacrylate. It is sold by the trade names Plexiglas, Vitroflex, Limacryl, R-Cast, Per-Clax, Perspex, Plazcryl, Acrylex, Acrylite, Acrylplast, Altuglas, Polycast, Oroglass, Optix and Lucite and is commonly called acrylic glass, simply acrylic, perspex or plexiglas. Acrylic, or acrylic fiber, can also refer to polymers or copolymers containing polyacrylonitrile. The material was developed in 1928…
perhaps you might be better off if you use a plexiglass welding chemical instead -- this solvent is a water thin solvent and is applied with a 3 inch needle nose bottle applicator. It is available through your local plexiglas distributor or at your local Home Depot. try using Comstich Plastic Welding Solvent-- contact your local Plexiglas distributor for product information
