The History of Acrylics
https://acrylicwarehouse.com/the-history-of-acrylics/

Quote:
Dr. Röhm wasn’t the only one focusing on safety glass – in the early 1930s, British chemists at Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI) discovered polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), also known as acrylic glass. They trademarked their acrylic discovery as Perspex.

The Röhm and Haas researchers followed closely behind; they soon discovered that PMMA could be polymerized between two sheets of glass and separated as its own acrylic glass sheet. Röhm trademarked this as Plexiglass in 1933. Around this time, the United States-born E.I. du Pont de Nemours & Company (more commonly known as DuPont) also produced their version of acrylic glass under the name Lucite.
1940's
Installation of Plexiglas panel at Rohm and Haas facility

General view of an unidentified employee fitting a Plexiglas windshield panel onto the nose enclosure of a Douglas A-20 attack bomber. This photograph was likely taken at the Rohm and Haas Company plant located in Bristol, Pennsylvania.
