Best Twin Wall Polycarbonate You Could Find In China

Twin wall Polycarbonate Introduction

Twin Wall Polycarbonate offers a rectangular insulation space inside to reduce thermal energy transfer. Meantime, it creates a stronger, lighter weight, and more impact resistance structure. Some people call it a “Double-Wall Polycarbonate Sheet”. With the co-extruded UV coating layer, twin wall polycarbonate sheet offers great weatherability even under intensive ultraviolet rays, the lifespan is more than 10 years or 15 years. Therefore, it can be used exterior.

Twin Wall Polycarbonate is from 4 to 12 millimeters in thickness, the Max. Width is 2.1 meters. It is about 20% or 30% price of flat polycarbonate sheet with the same thickness. Otherwise, twin wall polycarbonate sheet is really lighter-weight, and a bit lower light transmittance, but it offers excellent thermal energy saving capability, therefore, it is the right material for roofing applications, for example, commercial greenhouse, mini-greenhouse, sunroom, garden Restaurant, etc.

With more than 15 years of experience in the polycarbonate field, UVPLASTIC has grown to be the leading manufacturer of twin wall polycarbonate sheets in China. Meantime, we launched S-Type Double Wall Polycarbonate for higher strength in 2016. Today, we are providing high-quality twin-wall polycarbonate to more than 40 countries.

Unlike glass, twin wall polycarbonate is very strong, it is 200 times stronger than glass, meantime, it offers lighter weight than other types of polycarbonate plastic. But you need to reduce the distance between the mounting points.

UVPLASTIC developed S-type twin wall polycarbonate sheets to increase the strength when curving the twin wall polycarbonate sheet, please the following picture.

It depends on the applications. If you use the twin wall polycarbonate sheet for roofing, we don’t recommend 4mm twin-wall or solid polycarbonate sheets for roofing application, because 4mm twin wall polycarbonate isn’t strong enough. And four wall polycarbonate sheet is also another good choice. Solid polycarbonate sheet is too heavy and you need to use stronger supporting frames, it will be a high cost.

Twin wall polycarbonate with more than 6mm thickness and corrugated polycarbonate sheets will be the right choice.

Don’t thermoform the twin wall polycarbonate sheet, if you have no experience in this field. UVPLASTIC is not only the leading manufacturer of polycarbonate sheets but also the expert at Machining Polycarbonate, we can help clients with thermoforming twin wall polycarbonate sheets.

Yes, 4mm twin-wall polycarbonate is the best material for a garden greenhouse, because it is lightweight and durable. For a cold location, 6mm twin-wall polycarbonate sheet will be better.

Normally, 8mm twin-wall polycarbonate sheet is a great material for agriculture greenhouse. But 6mm twin wall polycarbonate sheets are used for a smaller greenhouse, and 10mm twin wall polycarbonate sheets are for greenhouse in a colder place.

Twin wall polycarbonate is one of the durable twinwall plastic sheets, the lifespan is more than 10 years or 15 years. The warranty is 10 years, the longest warranty is 15 years with clients’ requirements.

4mm thickness twin wall polycarbonate is suitable for the roof of the garden greenhouse. 6mm, 8mm, and 10mm thickness of twin wall polycarbonate are best material for the roof of commercial greenhouse. Click HERE for more detail.

Corrugated polycarbonate and twin wall polycarbonate offer different performance, corrugated polycarbonate offers excellent light transmittance, twin wall polycarbonate offers good heat transmission. But both are great materials for greenhouse roofing.
