What are the Types of Solid Polycarbonate Sheet?
Solid polycarbonate sheets are the best choice for industrial daylight roofs, outdoor canopies roofs, or building roofs. Besides general solid polycarbonate sheets, there are also special solid polycarbonate sheets whose surface is special or it has a denefit function. As following:
- Frosted polycarbonate sheet
- Diamond embossed polycarbonate sheet
- Litchi embossed polycarbonate sheet
- Light diffuser polycarbonate sheet
Frosted polycarbonate and light diffuser polycarbonate are widely used for the LED boxes, highway noise barriers, and daylight. It has low light transmission offering enough privacy but allowing sunlight transmission. Diamond polycarbonate and litchi embossed polycarbonate has beautiful surface, used for gate and interior decoration.
What’s the Light Transmission of Solid Polycarbonate Sheets?
Polycarbonate is available in a wide range of colors, ranging from transparent to bronze, yellow,lake-blue, and many more. The color of the sheet determines the light transmission of the structure to be built. The one of most superior advantages of clear flat polycarbonate sheets is high light transmission, up to 88%, like glass. About tinted solid polycarbonate sheet is range from 10%-60% light transmission. Usually, the darker the color gets the lower the light transmission. If your construction project has a requirement for light transmission, it’s better to test it with professional tools.
What is the Density and Weight of an Ordinary Solid Polycarbonate Sheet?
The density of ordinary solid polycarbonate sheet is 1.2kg/㎡/mm.
The weight of a solid sheet of 1 square meter and 1mm thickness is 1.2 kilograms (kg)
The weight of the solid board of 1 square meter and 2mm thickness is 2.4 kilograms (kg)
If you plan to purchase the solid polycarbonate sheet and have known its density of it, weigh the polycarbonate samples to judge whether the supplier uses enough material.
What Are the Features of Solid Polycarbonate Sheets?
High Impact Resistance
It is virtually unbreakable and excellent strong, 200 times stronger than glass, and 30 times stronger than acrylic sheets. Hailstone resistance and heavy wind resistance. It is safe for you to under the outdoor canopies of a solid polycarbonate roof. Don’t worry about the falling things.
Solid polycarbonate sheets can bend cold at a certain angle and you can shape polycarbonate into a curve for the window roofs. This process ensures that there is no more tension in the sheet and that the polycarbonate retains the new shape and therefore doesn’t spring back. These features can satisfy the architectural idea.
High Thermal Insulation
Solid polycarbonate sheets have superior thermal insulations and save energy. Polycarbonate construction roofs can keep warm in winter and keep cool in summer.
Solid polycarbonate sheets are lighter, a half-weight of glass. So that it is easy to handle and install. DIY outdoor canopies roof is very easy.
Solid polycarbonate sheets are hard to ignite, the V2 level. Self-extinguishing.When burning, harmful gases neither produce harmful gases nor fuel the fire.
Solid polycarbonate sheets are UV protected and block up to 99% of UV rays. It guarantees 10 years lifespan. UV-protected polycarbonate won’t become yellow and brittle over years.
What Are the Applications of Solid Polycarbonate Sheet?
- Industrial daylight roof
- Patio roofing
- Highway noise barrier
- Greenhouse cover
- Interior decoration
- Carport awning roof
