The Tough & Transparent Polymer
Polycarbonate stands for a group of thermoplastic polymers containing carbonate groups in their chemical structures. It earned its “Transparent steel” nickname from its unique combination of properties. Polycarbonate’s very high impact resistance renders it
virtually unbreakable. It is lightweight and can have a glass-like appearance, without its associated dangers. These characteristics allow Polycarbonate to be widely used in applications such as bullet resistant glazing and jet fighter canopies. They also make Polycarbonate an excellent material for greenhouse glazing due to its high light transmission and weather resistance, even at a low thickness.
