Polycarbonate plastic is stronger and has higher impact strength than acrylic. Polycarbonate is not only extremely lightweight, but also has exceptional resistance to numerous types of damage and is almost impossible to break.
Polycarbonate sheets can be cut to size to ensure that they fit your project perfectly, regardless of the purpose for which you are using them.
Why use polycarbonates?
With its strong nature and low moisture absorption, polycarbonate is a thermoplastic that is transparent and offers exceptional durability as well as resistance to impact and water damage. They are also very stable, heat-resistant, chemical-resistant, and flame-retardant.
Polycarbonate sheets are simple to work with; they cut and fasten with ease using bolts, nuts, and screws. It is easy to shape and size polycarbonate using thermoforming and machining.
At its melting temperature, this turns into a liquid that is easily recycled or injection-molded since it can be repeatedly chilled and heated without suffering considerable degradation.
Polycarbonate's strength and resistance make it an excellent choice for applications where security and safety are crucial.
What are the uses?
Polycarbonate sheets are perfect for commercial and do-it-yourself projects, as well as indoor and outdoor use, because of their weather resistance and UV protection. Manufacturers typically employ polycarbonate plastic for a variety of uses. For instance, polycarbonate is frequently utilized in the manufacturing of laptops, mobile devices, and CDs and DVDs.
Since strong polycarbonate panels is absolutely unbreakable and lasts year after year, it is ideal for use in the roofing industry as well as outdoor applications. Utilizing polycarbonate is commonplace for:
- Canopy roofs.
- Conservatory roofs.
- Greenhouse roofing.
- Machine guards.
- Protective sneeze guards.
- Security components.
