The superb strength it displays, combined with the fact that it weighs just half the amount of glass makes polycarbonate sheeting terrifically easy to install and ideal for environments where safety is a particular concern. In addition to these fantastic properties, polycarbonate offers maximum light admittance of 90% and is as optically clear as glass, without losing any of its aesthetics due to its strength.
Suitable uses for Polycarbonate discs include:
- Protective screens
- Secondary glazing for round windows
- Machine guards
- Retail displays
Some of these suitable applications will give some idea of the performance of polycarbonate discs and their fantastic versatility. Further to the safety advantages afforded by its strength, polycarbonate is also has a fire performance of Class 1, a very low moisture absorption rate and the ability to be cold formed on site. It can also be thermoformed but must be oven dried beforehand to prevent bubbles forming from the atmospheric moisture in the sheet being heated.
We offer clear polycarbonate discs in a range of thicknesses to suit a huge variety of applications.
Polycarbonate may also be diamond and mop polished, and can be bonded as required using solvent based adhesives. A low moisture absorption rate makes polycarbonate perfect for use in marine and hygienic environments, where it will not warp or distort through repeated cleaning cycles or exposure to water.
