 What is Polycarbonate?

Polycarbonate is a type of thermoplastic. This refers to a type of plastic that has the propensity to become liquid when it reaches its melting point. Above all, this allows for simple injection moulding but it’s also a very good property for recyclables. Polycarbonate is used as a glass substitute because it’s transparent and can transmit light nearly as effectively. Additionally, it’s highly pliable and can withstand significantly greater impacts. In fact, polycarbonate sheets are about 250 times stronger than glass and 30 times stronger than other plastic alternatives like acrylic.

Qualities of Polycarbonate Sheet

Polycarbonate is a very durable and long-lasting material. Although it does tend to cost more than its alternatives, you should keep in mind that its impact resistance will lead to less of a need to replace and it will take longer before it requires any fixing. It also has low levels of flammability and is thermally stable up to temperatures of 135°C.

It is very pliable with an inherent design flexibility and is able to be bent without heating. This allows for it to be cut or cold formed onsite in the midst of installation with no fabrication or preforming required unlike alternative materials like glass and acrylic. It also doesn’t need as much structural support as glass so all in all it can lead to both time and money being saved during the installation process.

There are occasions when polycarbonate is not ideal as it does have some downsides. Its pliability lends it to being easier to scratch and dent and it isn’t very resistant to cleaning products. If you want to enquire whether polycarbonate is right for you give us a call on 08 9409 3834.

Polycarbonate sheets can withstand high impact and can easily adjust to fluctuating weather conditions.

Due to its lightweight nature and pliability, polycarbonate is a great choice to use if you’re conducting a DIY product.Our polycarbonate sheets are suited for outdoor applications as they offer complete UV filter protection. This helps prolong the life of the sheet and will protect everything situated beneath it from ultraviolet rays while also allowing the natural light to flow through where needed.
