3mm Polycarbonate Sheet – A brilliant alternative to glass
Polycarbonate sheets are really tough and very strong. As a material it's often used as a glass alternative, being just as durable but safer and lighter. In fact it weighs in at five times less than glass. It's also thermoplastic, which means you can heat and re-form it as often as you like and it doesn't degenerate or lose its properties. Did you know it isn't quite the same as acrylic plastic sheeting? If not, and you're not certain which to use, give us a call or establish for yourself the differences between acrylic and polycarbonate here.
Polycarbonate is wonderfully easy to work with, form when heated, cut and machine. It lets in loads of light so makes an excellent glass replacement, especially in places where glass would be too dangerous. You can paint it any colour you like and glue bits of it firmly with everyday solvent-based glue. Stick two or more layers together and the intrinsic strength has to be seen to be believed. It looks good whatever the weather, and has a multitude of different uses and functions.
