Polycarbonate sheets resist UV rays, maintain sufficient light

Hengshui Shenlong Industrial Co., Ltd. has occupied a leading position in domestic market, and is striving for opening up a new market abroad. Our company has introduced five advanced production lines and use high-quality raw polycarbonate material and UV-resistant material. Our products are mainly focused on solid polycarbonate sheet (polycarbonate panels) and hollow polycarbonate sheet such as multiwall and twin-wall polycarbonate sheet. They can be found in many applications like greenhouses, roofing sheet and sound-insulation barrier.

Polycarbonate sheet is generally replacing glass, toughened glass and polyethylene membrane in many fields such as agriculture, industry, public buildings and ornaments. It is a perfect combination of lightweight, high impact strength, light transmission, frame-resistance, UV protection, anti-drop as well as charming appearance.

Why select polycarbonate sheets?

Polycarbonate sheet is generally replacing glass, toughened glass and polyethylene membrane in many fields such as agriculture, industry, public buildings and ornaments. It is a perfect combination of lightweight, high impact strength, light transmission, frame-resistance, UV protection, anti-drop as well as charming appearance.

Clear polycarbonate sheet is as transparent as glass, but weighs only a half. Lightweight makes it easy to transport and install.

Polycarbonate sheets, especially solid polycarbonate sheets, such as embossed and frosted sheets, have extremely high impact strength. According to test data, impact strength of polycarbonate sheet is about 200 times higher than the common glass, and 2 to 20 times the tempering glass. They are quite suitable for places where has a high potentiality of encountering hail, high wind and storm rain.

Sufficient light is an essential element of the greenhouse. Common glass and polyethylene are easy to produce water drops on the surface, which severely reduces light transmission and hinders plant growth. After special treatment, condensation will not produce on the interior surface of polycarbonate sheet.

Where is polycarbonate sheet used in?

Versatile polycarbonate sheets have a big family. For surface corrugations, smooth, embossed and frosted surfaces are manufactured. Smooth surface is for high light transmission, embossed and frosted are mainly used in decorating properties and buildings and create a comfortable and attractive view to dull life.

For constructions, both solid and hollow sheets are widely used all around the world. The prominent differences between solid and hollow sheets are light transmission and impact strength. Solid sheets are much stronger than hollow ones, but inferior to hollow sheet in thermal insulation. Hence, solid sheets are widely used in lighting, skylight, helmets. Hollow sheets are relatively cheap. They are also widely used in greenhouses and shop malls.

What is the difference between hollow and solid sheets?

  • Construction
    Solid polycarbonate sheet is single solid layer, while hollow sheet has at least two walls.
  • Thermal insulation
    Hollow polycarbonate or multiwall sheet is superior to solid sheet in thermal insulation for it traps air in its hollow structure as an excellent thermal barrier.
  • Light transmission
    Multiwall polycarbonate sheet is not as good as solid sheet.
  • Weight
    Solid sheet is heavier than hollow sheet.
