VULCAN Solid FLAT UV Resistant Polycarbonate sheet
Solarshield SOLID Flat sheets are made from UV resistant polycarbonate material plus IR (Infrared) blocking additives.
Even with Solarshield additives, this UV resistant polycarbonate Solid FLAT sheet keeps visible light transmission rates identical to clear glass, and is also capable of reflecting infrared-induced heat by 99% and reducing temperatures to the max. 15 °C / 59 °F.
With time, growing knowledge, improvements in manufacturing, and the constant development of proprietary additives, we have come to understand the advantages of using polycarbonate in place of traditional glazing material.
Polycarbonate sheets are 250 times over glass, 10 times over FRP and Acrylic sheets in impact strength, in addition, its lightweight, ease of installation, fireproof and weathering-resistant properties make them the perfect choice for civil construction and safety glazing.
For example, sheets 6mm and above are capable of stopping low-powered rounds, and are often laminated to create bulletproof glass to stop higher-powered rounds or complex security threats; PC sheets can also be thermoformed into riot shields for law enforcement, and polycarbonate domes for skylights.
