The polycarbonate sheet can also be made to be fully bullet resistant. They come with a special protection and security layer to dodge the bullets. These sheets are placed as a sandwich in between the ordinary glasses making them multilayered and bulletproof. It is proving to be worthy of the hype.
- Electronics industry:
They are now being used in the field of Electronics. Many electronics have utilized the excellent and marvelous features of polycarbonate sheets. They are not heavy, they are lightweight and they are durable and come with a very reasonable warranty. That’s why they are being used in phones, computers, laptops, and many other practical and real-life applications and electronics to make them live longer, sustainable and damage-proof. It also helps to make them protected and security risk-free. They were previously used to create compact this and DVDs but they are now used in most usually generally every field of electronics
- Automotive parts:
As we all know that polycarbonate sheets are not only resistant to UV rays or infrared rays, but they are also resistant to fire, heat and Chemicals. They are the best and only choice for most auto parts. They are used in the industry of automotive parts now. They are used in the manufacturing of radiators, handles, and even headlight bezels. This gives protection, durability, security, and long life to the vehicles in which these automotive parts are used.
Polycarbonate sheets are used to manufacture many electrical types of equipment and hardware appliances. They are lightweight and have high-impact qualities. The polycarbonate sheets prove to be the auspicious materials to use for making sensor portions, LCD units, interchanging transmits, processers, cell phones etc. The polycarbonate sheets are very ideal in electrical and electronic manufacturing because they are some of the safest and most hard-wearing materials. They are also used to make ocular plates so they have also a great place in the optical industry.
- Construction and building applications:
Polycarbonate sheets are 200 times stronger and heavier than ordinary glass. They are very rapidly replacing glass in the building industry. They can be molded and bent to other materials to use. They are durable and come with a guarantee. They are a good choice for skylights, rooftops, and glazing tops and are also used in security lights of buildings. They have a better appearance, look beautiful, and come in many colors and designs. Their insulation is greater than the glass. The polycarbonate sheets are also energy-saving and save so much electricity and another cost as compared to the glass
- Agricultural industry:
As described earlier, the main purpose of the polycarbonate sheets was to be used as greenhouses. They come with UV protection. They also come with an infrared rays protection coating so they have completely replaced the typical greenhouse glasses and are the only greenhouse material being used nowadays. It lets the sun rays in, captivates them, and also prevents and avoids the harmful UV radiations from coming in and causing harm and damage. It gives protection, it gives light, it gives heat and it also gets rid of all the threats of the harmful UV rays. It is stronger and more durable than glass. It comes in beautiful colors and designs. Polycarbonate sheets have many purposes in the agriculture industry. The polycarbonate sheets are taking over most of the industries.
- Security and protection:
Polycarbonate sheets are used in the manufacturing of insurgence shields, jail gaps, and defensive screens. They are provided with an anti-scratch coating to make them long-lasting and durable. The abrasion resistance helps this gear survive the constant usage.
