Flat polycarbonate sheets are used for a wide variety of industries, different testing reports and certificates will be needed for projects in North America and Europe.

Maybe, UVPLASTIC doesn’t have the testing report/certificate, it doesn’t mean that our products can’t pass the testing. We accept any third testing organization that the client appoints, or SGS will be the default third testing organization, they will test our products before shipping.

Polycarbonate is 250 times stronger than glass, 20 times stronger than the acrylic sheet. Therefore, flat polycarbonate sheet is the ideal material for safety glazing like police riot shield, skylight dome, roofing, and bullet-proof glass, motorcycle shield, clear kayak, etc.

The extruded UV protective layer will be needed, if the flat polycarbonate sheet is used outdoor, or it will turn yellow. But different manufacturers will offer UV protective layers with different thicknesses and different concentrations, therefore, the unqualified polycarbonate sheet will turn yellow in a short time. As a leading manufacturer and ONE-STOP supplier of polycarbonate and acrylic sheets, UVPLASTIC puts quality as the first consideration. UVFPC-SO-U1/U1A/U2 offers 10 years of warranty. Contact our engineer, if you need a longer warranty or any special requirement.

Flat polycarbonate sheet is one of plastic sheets, which offers the half weight of glass, but 250 times stronger. Meantime, it offers extraordinary durability and great formability, it is an ideal alternative to glass.

The original color of solid polycarbonate sheet is clear, the light transmittance is from 80% to 92% according to different thicknesses. But UVPLASTIC provides clients with a variety of colors, like grey, brown, bronze, blue, green, white, etc.

UVFPC-SO-U150 micron co-extruded UV protective layer on one side for outdoor application
UVFPC-SO-U1A50 micron co-extruded UV protective layer on the outside, anti-condensation treatment on the inside, it is for agricultural application
UVFPC-SO-U250 micron co-extruded UV protective layers are on both sides for outdoor application

Flat polycarbonate sheets will soften if heated above 130°C, therefore, it is easy to thermoform to a certain shape. Sometimes, the heat is built-up by the high friction, you can use water or air to cool it.

We will use the wooden tray on the bottom of flat polycarbonate sheets, it is easy to carry by a forklift, please see the following images,

No. Colored flat polycarbonate sheet is co-extruded by the melt colored resin and clear resin, therefore, color polycarbonate sheet doesn’t discolor, and the UV coating layer is needed, if it is used outdoor or turn yellow.

UVPLASTIC can provide flat polycarbonate sheets with standard sizes, which can be found at product specifications. Otherwise, we can cut to size upon your requirement, the following table is the size capability,

No, polycarbonate sheets will be damaged by some household solvents, such as Lysol, Pinesol, and Isopropanol alcohol. Using water and new cloth is the better way to lean polycarbonate sheets.

Yes, UVPLASTIC Polycarbonate Sheets can be thermoformed to shape by the standard equipment, the popular thermoforming processes are vacuum forming, free-blown forming, and line bending.

UVPLASTIC is not only a ONE-STOP supplier of polycarbonate sheets but also the provider of integrated polycarbonate fabrication service.
