Best Hard Coated Polycarbonate You Could Find In China

Hard Coated Polycarbonate Introduction

Hard Coated Polycarbonate is an enhanced polycarbonate sheet in the hardness of two surfaces. It can increase the surface hardness for 2-6 levels than the general-purpose polycarbonate sheets. The lifespan will be increased highly under the abrasion environment. As the leading supplier of hard-coated polycarbonate sheets in China, UVPLASTIC provides standard and custom hard-coated polycarbonate sheets for global clients. The standard surface hardness is HB under 750g testing weight. And the custom hard-coated polycarbonate offers a surface hardness up to 4H under 750g testing weight. In this case, clients can choose a suitable product for specific applications by high cost-efficiency.

UVFPC-HC is the model of UVPLASTIC Hard Coated Polycarbonate sheets, which offers excellent performances in abrasion resistance, anti-scratch, and chemical resistance under indoor and outdoor environment. Meantime, it offers excellent optical clarity. Therefore it is very effective for good visibility for some applications, like motorcycle windshield, machinery safety shield, polycarbonate face shield, and eye protection equipment, window with bullet-proof function in the bank, outdoor signs, specialty vehicle glazing, etc.
