Clear Acrylic Ball
Exceptional acrylic balls made in Italy. Perfect transparency & unsurpassed quality of raw material and finish.
The technical name of the material used to make a top quality Clear Acrylic Ball is PMMA (polymethyl methacrylate) or more commonly methacrylate. The best quality of PMMA plates is certainly obtained by casting an acrylic “syrup” obtained by polymerizing the MMA monomer in a reactor.
In a nutshell the starting material is liquid, and a small amount of catalyst is added that starts the solidification reaction. The amount of catalyst used then becomes the determining factor In order to reduce costs, some producers increase the amount of catalyst in order to speed up the reaction. The result is therefore a block obtained in many fewer hours but which on the other hand loses in transparency since the mixture is much richer in catalyst and is therefore less crystalline.
Our ultra clear acrylic balls are made using only the highest quality PMMA, hence a slightly higher price compared to most acrylic balls out there. The excellent photo’s above speaks for itself, but we assure you that the ultra clear transparency is even more incredible in person! Definitely recommended for all performers who want the “good” set to keep only for shows.
