Advantages


THERMAL AND MECHANICAL RESISTANCE :
Polycarbonate is produced by extrusion processing and, once cooled, acquires a remarkable thermal and mechanical resistance.

TOUGHNESS AND RESISTANCE:
The polycarbonate, chemically abbreviated as PC, has great toughness and resistance and is therefore particularly recommended for use in building structures, design and building coverings in general.

LOAD BEARING AND WIND PRESSURE RESISTANCE:
If exposed to weathering, in fact it counteracts shocks and breakages, demonstrating a high load and wind pressure resistance Analyses are carried out periodically as a matter of course by certified bodies, to guarantee that the material is hail-proof and the resistance against shocks.

LIGHTNESS
It is a light material, therefore easy to transport, and for this reason it has been employed a lot in the building sector.

TRANSPARENCY
It has an almost complete transparency and if it is fitted with UV protection it maintains its qualities when exposed to direct sunlight, otherwise it can deteriorate and discolour. This is the reason for which PolyPiù co-extrudes the sheets that it produces, applying a thick layer of UV protection and providing a 10 year guarantee for all its products.

DUCTILITY:
It is ductile and easy to work, and can be adapted to any request in as much that it can be transparent or coloured and it can take the shape of many different profiles (corrugated wave/box profile) or have the form of a flat sheet. It can be flat or curved and the bending can be carried out cold or warm, for use in complex structures. Easy to use it holds its shape, allowing excellent fastening.

FIRE RESISTANCE
Its extraordinary resistance to fire, allows it to be linked to all fields where safety is top priority among the considerations for the structure design. In fact it does not drop in the event of fire and it only melts if subjected to high temperatures.
PC is in effect the first choice in cases in which the Fire Service introduce requests for “renovation work” or “new jobs”.

THERMAL INSULATION
Multiwall polycarbonate in addition allows a special thermal insulation, thanks to its particular structure equipped with air pockets, guaranteeing a notable energy saving and the possibility to check the amount of light that is required in a certain environment, therefore the light transmission.

RECYCLABILITY and EASE of CLEANING
Its ease of cleaning and recyclability give further reasons for using polycarbonate. For cleaning the polycarbonate it is sufficient to use clear soap and it is re-usable in areas in which transparency is not a requirement, since re-using polycarbonate causes it to lose its visual characteristics and clearness.

THICKNESS
Different thicknesses allow the consumer to be able to choose the perfect product based on their requirements and in terms of the light transmission and thermal transmittance.
