2mm Polycarbonate Sheet – Impact resistant, tough, transparent


Polycarbonate sheeting is an attractive, tough, rigid and naturally transparent non-crystalline thermoplastic. It's used to make a wide variety of materials in applications where impact resistance and/or transparency are important, for example in security 'glass', and it comes with very different properties from acrylic sheeting. If you're not 100% certain which will work best for your project, contact us for expert help and advice or read about the difference between acrylic and polycarbonate here.

Product description

Polycarbonate resists impacts better than almost any other plastic sheet. It's extremely pliable and can often be formed at room temperature without breaking, but doesn’t become misshapen in sunlight. That's why it's so popular for prototyping applications where sheet metal isn't suitable. It comes with good electrical insulation properties and is because of its excellent levels of heat resistance is often used in combination with other flame retardant materials. The remarkably smooth and glassy surface is very like glass itself but safer and lighter.

Key Features

– Incredibly tough
– Up to 5 times lighter than glass and almost 300 times stronger
