Whether you are constructing a new roof for a project or replacing an existing one, both of these circumstances require careful consideration. You need a roof that is sturdy and powerful, capable of withstanding tough situations and extreme temperatures. You require a roof that is both durable and attractive. If you want a roof that combines all of these characteristics, the best option is a polycarbonate roof. Such roofing can be created using sheets made of high-impact polypropylene resin that come in a variety of compositions and depths. These sheets are available in a variety of grades and from a variety of producers, with the best being offered by yiplastic, the market leader in polycarbonate sheets.
Polycarbonate has grown in popularity in recent years as a material for skylights, sign faces, covered walkways, and other applications requiring transparency. There is a cause for this; after all, polycarbonate has a 250-fold stronger impact resistance than glass while also demonstrating superior temperature resistance and tensile strength. Additionally, our polycarbonate sheeting is warranted against yellowing, haze, breaking, and any other flaw that would impair its light transmittance. Simply put, there is no better material available for ensuring consistent clarity and durability in even the most extreme situations.
While everyone admires the beauty of glass, nobody enjoys the ease with which it may be broken or otherwise harmed. That is why mirrored polycarbonate has become the material of choice for people who require a mirrored surface that will not shatter if someone looks at it strangely. Automotive, dentistry, cosmetics, and correctional facilities, to mention a few, have all incorporated polycarbonate mirrors into their goods and facilities. This is because polycarbonate mirrors have the clarity of glass and the durability to withstand the harshest situations.
While we’re on the subject of harsh conditions, we might as well mention that polycarbonate sheeting is also available in a variety of bulletproof types. This is the substance frequently referred to as bulletproof “glass,” a thick pane of polycarbonate that is widely used in banking, police enforcement, security, and corrections.
One disadvantage of polycarbonate sheeting is that it scratches more easily than glass and certain other polymers. That is why we developed a line of polycarbonate sheeting expressly for that purpose, a durable and flexible material that is excellent for use in schools, hospitals, correctional facilities, and anywhere else where cumulative abrasions are a worry. Though the initial investment is slightly costlier than some of our other products, consider the money you’ll save in the long run by being able to enjoy the scratch-free surface of this polycarbonate for years to come.
Certain sterile and scientific workplaces make a concerted effort to prevent static, owing to the ease with which it can damage delicate equipment and skew the results of experiments.
While polycarbonate is quite resistant to heat, the intense temperatures created by open flames maybe a little too much for it.
Polycarbonate That Is FDA-Approved
Those who design food-handling items are well aware of how difficult it can be to locate FDA-approved materials, particularly when custom-sized molds or dies are required. Fortunately, FDA-approved polycarbonate complies with both FDA and NSF standard 51 standards. You can feel assured that any product created with this sheeting will safely handle food and will exhibit the same exceptional strength and resilience as our other polycarbonate types.
Multiwall polycarbonate is exactly what it sounds like – multilayer polycarbonate sheeting that is stronger, more versatile, and more insulating than the basic material. It demonstrates this excellence while remaining exceptionally light, making it a perfect glazing material for places that require protection from sunlight and other environmental problems. Multiwall is ideal for greenhouses, skylights, solariums, and atriums, among other applications. If you’re undertaking a similar project – or require custom sheeting for an altogether unique venture – multiwall polycarbonate is the material of choice.
Solid And Textured Polycarbonate Sheets
Solid Tuflite Polycarbonates are made from high-quality polycarbonate resin and have a 250-fold greater impact strength than a glass of comparable thickness, making them nearly unbreakable. These sheets are as clear as glass, transmitting around 90% of sunlight while blocking damaging UV rays. Additionally, these are available in an embossed texture pattern that resembles frosted glass. Polycarbonates, whether solid or textured, are resistant to extreme weather and have high thermal and chemical resistance, allowing them to be used in a broad variety of indoor and outdoor applications. Additionally, these sheets are lightweight, flexible, durable, and easy to store, transport, and cut/drill.
Polycarbonate Corrugated Sheets
Corrugated sheets are even stronger than their flat counterparts. Tuflite corrugated sheets excel in terms of performance and impact resistance. They come in a variety of materials and finishes. These are the best polycarbonates for commercial and industrial purposes, as well as for residential spaces and warehouses. They are quite effective for increasing daylight harvesting, which is something that those concerned with environmental issues take into account. Corrugated sheets provide superior heat and cold insulation than glass sheets and retain their optical qualities for a longer amount of time. Corrugated sheets are ideal if you require complete water resistance.
We hope that this overview of our polycarbonate product line has demonstrated that plastic is possibly the most flexible material currently available.
