Material Overview 

Polycarbonate sheeting is a type of thermoplastic material known for its exceptional strength, impact resistance, optical clarity, and versatility. It is made from polycarbonate resin, which is a polymer that can be molded and formed when heated and returns to a solid state when cooled. Polycarbonate sheets offer several advantages that make them popular in various industries and applications.

 Here are some key characteristics and benefits of polycarbonate sheeting:

STRENGTH AND IMPACT RESISTANT -Polycarbonate sheets are highly durable and have an excellent strength-to-weight ratio, making them virtually unbreakable. They can withstand high impacts without cracking or shattering, making them a safer alternative to glass.

OPTICAL CLARITY - Polycarbonate sheets have excellent transparency, allowing high light transmission. They offer optical clarity similar to glass, making them suitable for applications where visibility is important, such as windows, skylights, and displays.

LIGHTWEIGHT - Polycarbonate sheets are lightweight compared to glass, which makes them easier to handle, transport, and install. This property is particularly advantageous in applications where weight reduction is important, such as in transportation and construction.

  • Weatherability
  • Versatility
  • Flame Resistance
  • Chemical Resistance
  • Sound Insulation

Polycarbonate sheeting finds applications in various industries, including construction, architecture, automotive, electronics, signage, agriculture, and medical equipment. Its combination of strength, impact resistance, optical clarity, and weatherability make it a reliable and versatile material for a wide range of demanding applications.
