Monolithic polycarbonate “Borrex” 5.0 mm – product description
What it is?
Sheet material. The sheet looks like a solid piece of glass, without pores, air spaces, and any inclusions. The thickness of the sheets is different – from 0.5mm to 12mm, depending on the application. Monolithic polycarbonate is produced from the most modern polymer material with unsurpassed physical properties.
The strength of the metal and the transparency of the glass are combined in a monolithic polycarbonate. This flexible, lightweight, and most durable material among transparent plastics is indispensable for anti-vandal protection of buildings, complex architectural elements, bank premises, personal protective equipment, etc. Due to its fire resistance, lightness, and strength (2 times lighter and 250 times stronger than glass), ease of installation, monolithic polycarbonate has a very wide range of applications in the construction of residential and industrial premises and the automotive industry.
What is it for and where is it used?
The scope of application of monolithic polycarbonate is very extensive, the question of where it is used can be answered: “Everywhere.” Depending on the thickness of the sheets, they are used:
in construction: in the construction of gazebos, awnings, canopies, stadiums, greenhouses, swimming pools, fences, walls, and partitions, for installing protective screens along roads, for glazing window openings in industrial buildings;
for the production of protective equipment: protective masks and glasses for personal protective equipment, glasses, and glasses for glasses, viewing windows for mechanisms, shields for law enforcement agencies, etc .;
for mechanical engineering: glazing in special equipment (tractors, combines, loaders), glazing in water transport, glazing of headlights in cars, hatch covers in quarry transport;
for advertising: stands, signboards, lightboxes.
for the production of lighting equipment: lamps, protective screens for lighting in elevators;
for the production of furniture.
Monolithic polycarbonate is used where other materials cannot withstand stress.
Any complex shape can be made of monolithic polycarbonate.
Why is it good?
The most important characteristic of monolithic polycarbonate is strength. The material cannot be broken, it is very difficult to break, the sheets of monolithic polycarbonate do not crumble, do not break, do not crack from impacts. Externally, a sheet of monolithic polycarbonate looks like ordinary glass.
