Polycarbonate Sheet (AKA:Polycarb)

Manufactured using world class extrusion technology. It has not got a unique molecular structure and is usually derived from rigid monomers. Its called many things, we often use MAKROLON®. The Polycarbonates have been designed to meet the demanding needs of today's signage and fabrication, amongst many other uses.

We use two of three types

GP(general purpose): A polycarbonate sheet for general purpose applications that require superior impact protection without additional abrasion or UV resistance. UV(ultra violet): A co-extruded polycarbonate sheet or reel, offering exceptional weather ability and impact strength. The ideal choice for flat or moulded applications where extended service life and resistance to colour shift is required.

Suggested uses are

Where a sign is outside and at risk of vandalism / uv rays. Car / 4WD / boat shields or light covers Where you want a longer life out of your signage Machine guards
