What are the functions and uses of plexiglass?

Plexiglass is widely used because of its excellent properties. In addition to being used as canopy, windshield and chord window on airplanes, it is also used as windshield and window of jeep, skylight of large buildings (which can prevent breakage), screen of TV and radar, protective cover of instruments and equipment, shell of telecommunication instruments, optical lens of telescope and camera.

There are a wide range of daily necessities made of plexiglass, such as buttons made of pearlescent plexiglass colored sheets, and all kinds of toys and lamps are particularly beautiful because of the decorative function of plexiglass sheets colored.

Another wonderful use of plexiglass colored sheets in medicine is to make artificial corneas. If the transparent cornea of the human eye is full of opaque material, light cannot enter the eye. This is blindness caused by total corneal leukoplakia, which cannot be treated with drugs.

Perfect combination of beauty and practicality

Colored glass often contains a lot of colors and complex design, which is a very eye-catching art form. It is not only an art, but also a handicraft. To make these daylighting decorations, we need not only artistic talent, but also considerable engineering skills to assemble them together.

In the 12th century, stained glass rose with the prosperity of Gothic cathedrals, and stained glass windows were widely used in cathedrals and churches. In addition to increasing the aesthetic feeling of the building structure, the stained glass windows in this period are also regarded as an educational resource, which can tell Bible stories to the masses who do not know words.

With the architecture of that era becoming more gorgeous, stained glass windows also conform to this trend and become larger and more exquisite. Although the development of stained glass stagnated in the Renaissance, people's interest in medieval churches revived later, and the restoration of the design and manufacturing principles of medieval glass revived the art form of stained glass. With the revival of people's interest, the demand for colored glass art has been pushed to a new height.

The design of window pattern. In the past, artists would create a small-scale model for the final design. In the middle ages, such drawings were drawn directly on the surface of a washed table, on which windows were cut, drawn and assembled. The overall pattern of the window is divided into small pieces. This small-scale design will serve as a template for each small piece of glass in the overall window pattern.

After the design is completed, all kinds of glass are cut to match the selected position. Over the years, people have developed a variety of rendering and coloring techniques, hoping to further improve the design of colored glass. For example, silver nitrate coloring can produce yellow, which can help improve the border and halo; People have also developed a coloring called cousin rose, which enables artists to better represent the hue of the human body.

As a final step, the window panel is added with a dividing strip called a panel, which was formerly made of lead strip and more recently made of copper strip. The joints are then welded together, and oily cement is embedded between the glass and the divider strip to ensure stability and reduce possible shaking.
