All VULCAN polycarbonate sheets carrying the Valuview name use 100% Virgin UV stabilized Covestro resin. As an added option, sheets can be co-extruded with Clariant CESA-Light UV and Light Stabilizers for extended lifespan and added protection against light transmission losses and yellowing caused by excessive exposure to solar radiation.
