Polycarbonates (PC) are a group of thermoplastic polymers containing carbonate groups in their chemical structures. Polycarbonates used in engineering are strong, tough materials, and some grades are optically transparent. They are easily worked, molded, and thermoformed. Because of these properties, polycarbonates find many applications. Polycarbonates do not have a unique resin identification code (RIC) and are identified as "Other", 7 on the RIC list.And the polycarbonate sheet is a popular and beautiful roofing materials in the building area.
Polycarbonate solid sheet
Polycarbonate is normally called Lexan (trademarked name by GE Plastics) or Makrolon. please find features of polycarbonate solid sheet below:
Stronger than acrylic sheet
Higher level of impact resistance (250 times the impact resistance of glass)
Less rigidity than acrylic and can be bought in flexible grades
Can handle temperatures up to 240 degrees Fahrenheit
Highly resistant to acids and other chemicals such as gasoline
Can be drilled without worry of cracking
Can be cold formed or bent without heating
Low level of flammability
Polycarbonate Blue solid sheet combines ultra-high impact resistance with clarity, making it the material of choice for demanding applications. Polycarbonate solid sheet is virtually unbreakable, yet it is transparent as glass at less than half its weight. Polycarbonate solid sheet can be cold bent and easily fabricated and formed, making it ideal for barrel vault roofing, skylights, architectural roofing and glazing. Clear, translucent and opaque Polycarbonate solid sheets are also ideal as machine guards, sound barriers, anti-vandal and safety glazing. Polycarbonate solid sheets Diffuser and LB sheets are extensively used in durable light boxes.
Features and advantage:
1. Very high impact strength
2. Excellent light transmission
3. UV protection and Anti-aging
4. Good weather resistance
5. Light weight and simply installed
6. Could be deep-processed, widely used
7. Soundproof well
Clear, Opal, Lake blue, also could be custom color
1220*2440 ,2100*5800 or customized
0.8mm-20mm or other thickness
80 times that of glass, 15 times that of acrylic sheeting
Temperature resistance range
Only 1/12 of the weight of glass of the same thickness
After the receipt of deposit
The impact strength of solid PC sheet is 200 times that of glass, and the impact strength of hollow PC sheet is 80 times that of glass.
The weight of PC Solid Sheet is only about half of glass, and the weight of hollow PC Solid Sheet is only about 1/12 at the same thickness.
The light transmission of 3mm PC Solid Sheet is 90%, and the light transmission of 6mm hollow PC sheet is 80%.
PC sheet is co-extruded with a high-density ultra violet ray absorbent to fight against ultra violet ray, it can prevent discoloring and frailness
PC Solid Sheet have good weather ability, it can maintain excellent properties in a wide temperature range from -40 Degree C to +120 Degree C.
The polycarbonate resin offer significant advantage to the sound insulation and it can be used in soundproof
PC sheet is possible to construct curved roofs and windows and can be bent while hot or cold.
