Tips to choose the polycarbonate greenhouse Nowadays, polycarbonate greenhouses are increasingly popular for both residential and commercial applications, which gradually take over the polyethylene film and glass greenhouse. The polycarbonate sheet, we also call it cellular polycarbonate which names after the internal structure of this material. The special structure provides the polycarbonate with an array of qualities: Lightweight, light transmission, durability and etc. Those are the reasons why recently polycarbonate materials are commonly used in covering greenhouses. In this article, 4 tips are needed to be taken into account when buying the polycarbonate for your greenhouse. Tip1:UV-ray protectionSame to the polypropylene, the cellular polycarbonate will be destroyed by constant exposure to sunray. Therefore, the UV protection layer is highly recommended. The polycarbonate sheets with UV protection will last more than 2-3 years than the ones without. Tip2:Warranty PeriodThe high-end quality of the polycarbonate sheets has over 10 years. By contrast, the most common one is less than 5 years. The sheets with 10 years guarantee, cannot be cheap. Good quality always follows up with more cost. Tip3:The thicknessLight transmission varies in different thicknesses. Usually, the twin-wall polycarbonate is recommended, because it offers a balance of light transmission and thermal insulation. The light transmission of twin wall sheets can reach up to 80-90%. In other structures, such as 3 walls, the transmission falls into 75%. In a word, thicker, more thermal insulation but less light transmission. More thinner the polycarbonate sheet, more light transmission, and less insulation. Tip4:The colorThe color of clear, is the commonly used. However, you perhaps select other colors to get a visual effect. As you’ve already guessed out, adding color affects the light transmission. Think about it----Your greenhouse is wearing a pair of sunglasses. So if you are going to buy UNQ polycarbonate sheets, keep these 4 tips in mind. The advantages of the UNQ polycarbonate sheets are versatile. But in the meantime, it is critically important to consult the right manufacturer for the best guidance, guarantee certification. Under the manufacturer’s help, safety measures and installation help will be offered accordingly.
Polycarbonate sheets take place of the glass and acrylic in different fields for their great own property. Compared to glass, they are more light-weighted, durable. Besides, PC(polycarbonate) sheets are breakage-resistant and crack-resistant, with 10 times more impact-resistant than traditional plastic. At first, polycarbonate is only used in high-end restaurants, cafes, lounges, and offices. As time goes on, more and more people realize the great advantages of polycarbonate, not only easy installation and long lifespan, but also lowering the costs. Nowadays, polycarbonate is more affordable and brought into our daily life, such as swimming pool cover, balconies, patios, greenhouse, carports. So do you know why polycarbonate sheets are so widely used today? The following property is listed. Cost-effectiveLight weightiness is the property the polycarbonate has, so the sheets can be easily transported and installed. So the delivery cost and the labor cost can be reduced accordingly. So, the price is much more favorable. Easy installation You can install the polycarbonate sheets with the screws and rods and cut the polycarbonate sheets with sharp scissors regardless of any other tools and machinery. Fewer tools, less labor, and less time, finally result in easy installation. Versatile Unlike glass, the special structure of the polycarbonate sheets leaves enough creativity for the designer. Domes, igloos, and any creative design can be added to the building. High Impact resistanceAnother property of polycarbonate is high impact resistance. High speeding objects attack the polycarbonate sheets, they won’t break owing to their ability to hold up under a big impact.In contrast to common plastics, the plastics can be easily broken and the person walking by. So that’s why it is the priority for safety glasses. Those are the features that lead polycarbonate widely used in areas in construction. Besides, the UNQ POLYCARBONATE SHEETS are also used in police security, automobile parts, advertising, and some other applications. Any question, quantity, types, colors, contact us UNQ polycarbonate sheets.
PC(Polycarbonate) is widely used as an engineering material due to its unique characteristics, which include: High impact strength High light transmission Light-weighted Flame retardant Owing to these features, the PC offers product designers and engineers lots of design freedom, making PC(Polycarbonate) an ideal material for applications in different fields. The following are the details： Building&Construction As the PC(Polycarbonate) is well known for its high light transmission, light-weighted, the PC is used in glazing applications, such as a greenhouse, social distancing barrier, interior decorations, skylights, roofing. Automotive As PC is lightweight and clear, it is used to attracting design and improve vehicle efficiency without affecting the durability and providing a high improvement of the aerodynamics of a vehicle. PC blends are good material for the interior and exterior body parts of the car owing to their rigidity and good creep resistance. Agriculture The polycarbonate sheets are commonly used to make covering materials for greenhouse and nurseries. Owe to its lightweight, polycarbonate sheets gradually take place of glass, those traditional materials using in the greenhouse. The greenhouse, with an excellent UV protection layer, which can keep away from the harmful UV radiations, eventually protects plants inside. There are different types of polycarbonate hollow sheets, such as twin-wall, triple-wall, multi-wall, and honeycomb, which poss high light transmittance and high impact strength. Security application Polycarbonate sheets are commonly used in riot shields, prison windows. Due to the anti-scratch technology, the polycarbonate sheets are durable for long life. Under the protection of the anti-scratch coating layer, the polycarbonate sheets can withstand constant use.

Passenger safety is a key requirement of the public transportation sector, and the interiors of trains and subway cars, tram tracks, and bus interiors also need to be protected to prevent wear and tear due to frequent use and damage caused by vandalism. As a result, railway operators and other public transportation companies are increasingly insisting on using highly durable materials for vehicle interiors.In recent years, PC (polycarbonate) sheet production and processing technology have been continuously upgraded. These highly versatile products can ensure the safety and durability of public transportation vehicle interiors, and can also provide effective and significant noise protection.TramEnsure the safety and durability of the interiorPassenger trains are often deliberately vandalized. Vandals took pleasure in scraping windows, scribbling at will, and destroying seats. In addition, passenger trains will also be naturally damaged due to the effects of high and low temperatures. Any necessary repairs may affect the availability of the vehicle and cause additional costs. The use of PC sheets can not only prevent such damage, but also solve usability problems. Even at freezing temperatures, the material still has excellent fracture and chipping resistance and high impact resistance. At the same time, the material can effectively resist severe mechanical impact. Due to the excellent surface quality of the board, the scribble on the surface can be removed with a water pipe.The application advantage of PC board is very significant, and it has been successfully used in trains in some countries. For example, this board has been used in trains in the Netherlands and Germany.PC sheet vehicle interiorLong-lasting glazing effectPC sheets used in rail vehicles can be produced by hot pressing. This can not only save mold manufacturing costs, but also provide designers with a wide range of creative freedom. After all, in addition to safety, train interiors should also have a good appearance. PC board is an ideal material, not only easy to process and shape, but also lightweight and extremely strong.It is for this reason that PC sheets can also be used for glass assembly in the future to replace heavy, fragile glass. In this regard, the advantages of PC board have truly been widely recognized. This material is practically unbreakable and requires no repairs and accompanying services. The transparent polycarbonate also matches the optical quality of the glass.PC sheet vehicle interiorEffective noise protectionPC board and all its advantages can be more widely used for noise protection. After use, the noise level can be reduced by 36dB, which is far more than the 28dB noise reduction value specified by international standards. For railway transportation, PC sheet can also shine. High-speed trains will have a huge dynamic impact on the noise protection wall. For this reason, the German Railway Network AG (DBNetzAG) uses customized PC panels.Different from dark concrete tunnels or other opaque materials, the transparent noise protection wall made of PC board allows drivers and passengers to freely view the surrounding landscape at any time. And because light can pass through the noise protection wall, the plants inside can also grow lush. Therefore, this type of noise protection wall can more effectively adapt to the surrounding environment. In addition, the PC board can be 100% reused after the expiration date.PC material vehicle seatIn general, as a vehicle interior component, PC board not only meets the needs of different colors and surface treatments, enhances the sense of design, but also makes the train lighter and safer, making it easier for passengers to get on and off the train. At the same time, it can also reduce energy consumption and pollution.Heibei Unique Plastics Manufacturing Company is specialized in manufacturing polycarbonate sheets.
