One hundred percent recyclable: Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA)
PMMA is a durable and sustainable product that is 100 percent recyclable. When heated under suitable conditions, polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) breaks down into its original monomer, methylmethacrylate (MMA); this process,, known as depolymerization, is used industrially to revert PMMA back to its reusable monomer - MMA. PMMA can also be reground, melted, and extruded into new products, making thethe recycled material ready for reuse. This not only saves raw materials, but also reducing waste.
