Polycarbonate Sheet: Palsun, Lexan & Makrolon
Flat polycarbonate sheet is a high quality plastic, often referred to by its brand names (Lexan, Makrolon, and Palsun). In its clear solid form, Palsun polycarbonate sheet delivers the transparency of glass at less than half the weight, combined with unmatched strength, often used as safety glazing or security panels.
Palsun polycarbonate sheet can be cold bent, fabricated and/or formed, making it ideal for applications such as skylights, barrel vault roofing, architectural roofing and general glazing. Palsun polycarbonate sheets are available in clear, translucent or opaque, and prove useful as machine guards.
Polycarbonate sheet has similar properties to Acrylic Sheet and is often described as having an acrylic appearance, but with much greater strength and a class 1 fire rating. Polycarbonate can be described as bulletproof and used in a variety of applications such as aircraft windscreens to DVD's and CD's.
Polycarbonate sheets are available in a wide variety of transparent, translucent, and opaque colours. Opaque colours do not transmit light. Transparent colours transmit light and images (and are clear or tinted). Clear and opaque sheets may have a glossy or embossed surface on one side.

How To Clean Polycarbonate
Should polycarbonate sheets require cleaning, it is recommended that luke warm water with a little detergent is used. This should be wiped over the polycarbonate's sheet surface with a soft, non abrasive cloth/sponge. Using any other form of cleaning product or oil could leave damage to your polycarbonate sheeting. Cleaning the polycarbonate dry can often leave to a scratched surface. This is due to the polycarbonate's soft surface, despite its unmatched strength to glass.
