Pearly TRIMDEK Series
Pearly TRIMDEK Series
Diffused and Cool - Solar selective wavelength penetration.

Soft Diffused Lighting - Filters unwanted wavelengths, retaining cool, diffused GREEN light.

Controlled FIR and NIR - Reduce temperatures by max. 10°C or 50°F.

Weathering Resistant - Clariant UV and Light Stabilizers for extra durability and longevity.

Extra light diffusion + High Haze + Balanced light.

Aesthetically pleasing - Owing to high mother of pearls content.

VULCAN TRIMDEK (190/27) polycarbonate sheet

VULCAN TRIMDEK polycarbonate sheet matches closely to the TRIMDEK metal roofing profile used in Taiwan and most Asian countries.

The four 131mm valleys in between crests each have three additional low profile corrugations specially designed for better drainage.

The tall and angular crest corrugations combined with additional shorter crests at the valleys creates a very industrialized look, making TRIMDEK corrugated profile a very popular choice when building factories or warehouse facilities.

PEARLY GREEN

VULCAN Pearly GREEN has been designed as a solar heat protection application that attenuates longer wavelength heat-producing infrared radiation very effectively through reflection, but at the same time, allowing a high percentage of cool, diffused GREEN light to pass through.  

Pearly GREEN have particle sizes in the range of 10~60μm, and is suitable for general-purpose infrared blocking applications.

Pearly GREEN reflects rather than absorbs heat producing far-red solar radiation without affecting the transmittance of the GREEN spectrum, and retains cool, diffused GREEN light.

This makes it easier to control the climate, particularly in the summer, and maintain optimum room temperature.*
*A large proportion of the heat inducing far-red light is reflected.
