Poly(methyl methacrylate) is used in the lenses of exterior lights of automobile and automotive components such as badges, steering wheel, tachometer covers, warning triangles and fascia panels. It is in the form of sheets used in shatter resistant panels for building windows, skylights, bullet proof security barriers, bathtubs, LCD screens, furniture and many other applications. It is used as the matrix in laser dye-doped organic solid-state gain media for tunable solid state dye lasers. Further, it is used as a shield to stop beta radiation emitted from radioisotopes, as dosimeter devices during the gamma irradiation process and as a dispersant for ceramic powders to stabilize colloidal suspensions.
