8mm Polycarbonate Sheet – Light, bright, versatile


Polycarbonate is a versatile product. It can be easily glued or bonded to other materials. It's remarkably strong, almost 300 times stronger than regular glass, is more or less unbreakable, has a good fire rating and you can cut it to shape yourself to make all sorts of shatterproof items. It's also completely different from acrylic sheeting. If you're not sure which you need, you can either chat with one of our experts or click here to find out the differences between acrylic and polycarbonate.

Product description


Because polycarbonate is one of the strongest plastics around, it's ideal for all sorts of glazing projects, from Wendy houses to greenhouses, porch windows and conservatory roofs. It's as much as five times lighter than glass, but lets up to 90% of the light through. It is heat resistant, snow, rain and sunlight resistant, and lasts for years without fading or discolouring. It's cost effective, strong, durable and looks just like glass.
