Polycarbonate opal sheets are plastic sheets with a very high impact resistance. Polycarbonate is 250x stronger than glass in the same thickness. Because of this characteristic is polycarbonate excellent to be used as security glazing or protection that must be hufterproof, burglary proof and with a high impact resistance. Furthermore, polycarbonate has a fire classification which makes the material to be allowed by the fire department to be used in public spaces (with the exeption of airports, there you can only use PETG). Also, this material barely knows any thickness tolerance and is therefore easy to apply in aluminum profiles. Are you looking for other polycarbonate sheets?

PyraSied has a wide variety of polycarbonate opal sheets with a variety of characteristics and properties. Different light transmissions, surface structures and thicknesses. Each application sets other requirements and with our different opal sheets we offer the desired flexibility. For other features such as better optical purity, more different thicknesses, laser processing or other light transmissions, we have a wide range of acrylic (plexiglass®) opal sheets. For opal sheets used in airports, PET-G opal sheets are required.
For inspiration, please take a look on our Acrylic Community.
PyraSied can do the following fabrications for you with polycarbonate: cutting, milling, hot and cold bending, bonding, drilling, facetting, polishing, matting and printing.
Lexan® and Makrolon® are well-known brand names of polycarbonate.
