Solid Polycarbonate UV

Polycarbonate sheets deliver the transparency of glass at less than half the weight combining superior impact resistance and clarity, making it the material of choice for many demanding applications. Polycarbonate can be fabricated and formed, making it ideal for applications such as barrel vault roofing, roof lights and glazing. Clear, translucent or opaque polycarbonate sheets are also ideal for safety glazing applications, with excellent fire resistance. Another application is temporary glazing panels where polycarbonate is perfect due to its clarity, strength and how easy it is to cut to size with simple tools such as a jigsaw. TBS is an exclusive distributor and stockist in the UK of 15mm clear solid 2050mm x 3050mm polycarbonate sheet.
