Currently, Valuview Ultra-Thin Solid Flat sheets is offered in clear, with its transparent, high visible light and solar transmission identical to standard clear glass, but at almost half the weight and 250 times its strength. Polycarbonate is also shatterproof, a property that is unseen on other clear glazing materials.
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 Avient 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.
Base MaterialVULCAN polycarbonate sheets use only 100% Virgin Covestro UV stabilizer included master-batch.
UV Resistant CoatingCo-extruded with the Base Material, the Avient CESA Light UV and Light Stabilizers blocks harmful UV rays from 280~400nm. With co-extruded UV protection, VULCAN Polycarbonate sheets last 10 years or more.
Production MethodCo-Extrusion ensures evenly spread, evenly thick base material and UV coating.
