Choose Your Polycarbonate Glass Shape

A high-impact, architectural super star

Tough, optically transparent, break-resistant, Lexan polycarbonate surpasses all other thermoplastics for glazing use, safety and strength.

Polycarbonate is a non-toxic polycarbonate thermo resin. The liquid polymer forms when bisphenol A reacts with carbonyl chloride. Uncoated sheets are then heat- or cold-formed.

Polycarbonate Versatility and Features

To really understand the superiority of this thermoplastic, consider these products made from polycarbonate: helmets, face shields, airplane and ship portholes, instrument components and electrical insulators - too name just a few. It's the choice for safety, thermal protection, security, clarity and strength. Standard polycarbonate sheets even have built-in forced entry protection.

  • Polycarbonate sheets are lightweight.
  • Polycarbonate withstands temperatures from -40 degrees F to 280 degrees F.
  • Standard polycarbonate sheets are UV stable.
  • Polycarbonate earns the highest plastics code compliance for light-transmission.
  • High-impact properties make polycarbonate virtually unbreakable.
  • Polycarbonate sheets offer superior sound insulation.
  • Surfaces can be painted, printed or metalized.

Polycarbonate building uses

Domed structures, glass roofing, balconies and railings as well as high-pressure (bullet resistant) and high-temperature windows. Creative applications for vertical structures, make Lexan a prized material in the architect's toolkit.

Polycarbonate sheet thickness options are: 1/8" and 1/4" in stock.
