Which polycarbonate or glass is more suitable for roofing?


Polycarbonate sheet is often compared with glass because of its transparency comparable to glass. So which of these two materials is better in practical applications?

1.Comparison of impact resistance of Polycarbonate and glass in application

In the actual application process, the risk of glass fragmentation when encountering strong winds and earthquakes is very high, even for tempered glass. But the polycarbonate does not have such concerns, so its strength is 250 times that of ordinary glass and 50-100 times that of tempered glass. Even if it is hit with a hammer, it will not break.


  1. Comparison of weight between Polycarbonate and glass in application

    In terms of weight, under the same specifications, the Polycarbonate is of course lighter, and it has the characteristics of bendability, indicating that the Polycarbonate can be used in small spaces and special angles, and can be used in various spaces to facilitate construction. Secondly, under the same thickness, the Polycarbonate is better than glass in terms of high-frequency sound insulation.

  2. Comparison of the safety of Polycarbonate board and glass in application

    If glass is used as a building material, the glue method is usually adopted, which is to combine two thinner glass into a thicker glass. After a long period of wind and sun exposure, the embrittlement of the glue will cause safety problems. Therefore, from a safety point of view, it is recommended that everyone try to use Polycarbonate.

Through the above comparison, it can be seen that, in fact, the polycarbonate  can gradually replace glass in practical applications, even in terms of aesthetics, and the endurance board can also be customized in different colors and cut into different shapes according to the actual needs of customers. and many more.
