– Light weight (from 1,5 to 3,5 kg/m2) is 10 times less than glass and 3 times less than the acrylic. Weight polycarbonate is 16 times less than the weight of ordinary glass similar thickness, 6 times – acrylic glass. – High impact strength. In cities with strong winds, such sheets are used to cover buildings and protect them from flying objects. Polycarbonate panels possess high shockproof performance in a wide temperature range from -40 to + 120 c, exceeding the impact resistance of any kind of plastic, and in comparison with glass, this 200-fold difference. Material differs remarkable protection against hail, careless handling or deliberate damage. – Fire – slow burns and low emission of toxic gases, ignition temperature 570 degrees C, and exposed to open flame melts, forming harmless flakes. – Operating temperature range – from -40 to +120 degrees Celsius – Acoustic properties – noise reduction up to 18-22 dB.
– Resistance to chemicals – used in any aggressive environment, partially dissolves in the complex ethers. – Durability. Polycarbonate is on the outer surface layer of high-absorption of ultraviolet rays, which prevents their penetration into the leaf. Protection from uv rays prolongs the life of the material and protects against yellowing and weakening of the guaranteed service life – 10-12 years. 2.
Monolithic polycarbonate. Monolithic polycarbonate is a solid polycarbonate sheets with thickness of 4, 5, 6 mm. With it you can solve almost any problem related to veneer or glazing of building and other facilities. Monolithic polycarbonate is rarely used in the horizontal overlap (very expensive to do so), but is an ideal material for the manufacture of elements of the curvilinear shape by hot forming. The method is based on the gradual increase of temperature in a special furnace with air circulation, where the polycarbonate sheets. Then Hot Sheet is transferred to the stamp. This technology provides a constant thickness of the resulting element curved shape. Such elements have extremely high impact strength. In the process of forming these elements become the ribs, making them suitable for self-supporting floors and removes the need to use the metal frame. This is a different dome with a round, square or rectangular base, Broaching unit skylights with unlimited length, and separate sections of huge domes, reaching 8 – 10 m in diameter, which are easily transported and assembled. Monolithic polycarbonate differs from cell increased resistance characteristics and durability. Several of applicability of solid polycarbonate comprises industrial applications in architecture, construction, transport and security. Dimensions solid polycarbonate sheet: thickness – from 2 to 12 mm, width – 2050 mm Length – 100 to 13000mm. Color solid polycarbonate sheets: Clear, Bronze, Blue, Green, Yellow, Red, White, Milk, Black Leaf monolithic (solid) Polycarbonate is the strongest of all transparent materials, existing in the world market, and manufactured on an industrial scale Actual life sheet is about 15 years, with the manufacturer a 10-year quality guarantee on the sheet, subject to the rules of operation. Weight of solid polycarbonate is much less than the weight of glass similar strength, and large sizes and the possibility of cold bending significantly broaden the scope, in comparison with ordinary glass – which determines the superiority of polycarbonate glazing over silica.
