Solarshield - Transparent IR Protection
VULCAN Solarshield comes in two colors, Greenish and Blue, and is an inorganic, nano-structured, IR-protection based pigment designed as a solar heat protection application.
Solarshield attenuates longer wavelength heat producing infrared radiation very effectively through reflection, but at the same time, retains high clarity, virtually unnoticeable compared to standard VULCAN Valuview Clear sheets.
When co-Extruded with UV and light stabilizers hence becoming a weathering, UV resistant polycarbonate sheet, there is no risk of IR-protection loss, nor does it change color over time.
One of the biggest advantages of Solarshield polycarbonate solid flat sheets when compared to other plastic glazing material with heat reduction properties is that Solarshield blocks and reflects IR, not absorb.
This means that, while older technology such as TiO2 coated sheets absorbs solar radiation and increases the temperature of the whole material, Solarshield sheets remains at a cool and steady temperature.
For high coefficient of thermal expansion rates on materials such as plastics, this provides a huge advantage as less thermal expansion and contraction translates to longer lifespan of the material, which is why we provide a limited 15 year warranty VULCAN Solarshield Solid Flat sheets.
Solarshield is an IR-reflection additive that is designed to work with polycarbonate sheets as a solar heat protection application that attenuates longer wavelength heat-producing infrared radiation very effectively through reflection.
Reflected IR means that surface temperatures of the PC sheets remains low, which prolongs the lifespan of the sheet.
VULCAN Solarshield comes with a 15 year limited warranty*.
Solarshield is an inorganic, nano structured pigment clear transparent in polycarbonate. Being weathering stable means no loss of IR-protection during weathering.
Excellent Heat Reflective Properties
Excellent Light tranmission - Controlled NIR (780~2500nm) - Capable of reducing temperatures up to 10°c* in a ventilated environment.
Light Transmission Rate
Excellent Light tranmission - Controlled VIS (380~780nm) - 40% light transmission rate.
High Impact Resistance
250 times the impact strength over glass and 10 times over FRP and Acrylic.
VULCAN polycarbonate sheets use only 100% Virgin Covestro UV stabilizer included master-batch.
Total UV Protection
Co-extruded with the Base Material, Clariant CESA Light UV and Stabilizers blocks harmful UV rays from 280~400nm. With CESA Light coating, VULCAN Polycarbonate sheets are able to last 15 years or more.
Clean Room Manufacturing
VULCAN Sheets are produced in ISO Class 7 (FED STD 209E equivalent Class 10,000) clean rooms to ensure impeccable quality.
Co-Extrusion ensures evenly spread, evenly thick base material and UV coating.
