Plastics, Acrylics & Laminates Used In Prop Manufacture & Set Design
Plastics, acrylics and laminates are all used in the production and manufacturing of props and sets. Plastics are synthetic or semi-synthetic organic solids used in the fabrication of props and sets. Acrylics are plastic-like resins derived from acrylic acid, which may be used in the moldmaking process as a protective seal which a product hardens. Laminates are materials created by placing two or more layers of material together in order to produce a stronger, protected surface with strength reinforcement, but not bulk or added weight, as in plywood that is used extensively in set construction.
