Polycarbonate sheets are produced in multi-wall and solid constructions, and the material itself is translucent, lightweight, and extremely durable. Polycarbonate is 250 times stronger than glass and 30 times stronger than acrylic. Because of these properties in relation polycarbonate sheets are popular for a wide range of uses,

Features and Benefits:

  • Virtually unbreakable
  • High impact resistance
  • High clarity and light transmission
  • UV protective layer (1 or 2 sided)
  • High flame resistance
  • Half the weight of glass
  • Easy to machine, handle, and install
  • Weight, tensile strength, thermal expansion, and chemical resistance are all particularly important factors in most applications.

Applications and Projects:

  • Fabricating: sawing, routing, shearing, laser cutting, die cutting, and drilling
  • Fastening: mechanical fastening, solvent bonding, transfer tape bonding, and welding
  • Finishing: sanding, jointing/planing, solvent polishing, hot stamping, screen printing, painting,
  • Forming: brake bending, cold bending, thermoforming, molding, drape forming, and strip heating
  • Glazing: curtain-wall framing with either a wet or dry glazing system
