    Satin polycarbonate tubes are fire retardant (B1 certificate), vandal-proof and extremely impact resistant. Because this tube contains opal pigment and has a satin surface, the tube spreads light beautifully and makes it diffuse! This satin opal tube has a light transmission of 65%. The tube is less appropriate for outside applications because the tube is limited UV-stabilized.

    Stock satin polycarbonate tubes

    The polycarbonate satin tubes are only available on request. There is a limited stock of this material, more tubes in various wall thicknesses and diameters can be ordered on request. Contact our sales team for more information. PyraSied has also transparent polycarbonate tubes on stock in various diameters.


    Polycarbonate tubes are mainly used for technical applications because of their impact resistance. The polycarbonate tube satin opal is very appropriate for lighting fixtures where impact-resistance is very important. The tubes are mostly used in the lighting industry as a shield around light sources, but also in the process industry. For inspiration, please take a look at our Acrylic Community.

    Frequently Asked Questions
    When do I choose for acrylic and when do I choose for polycarbonate?

    Acrylic is optically more pure than polycarbonate. Polycarbonate, on the other hand, is much more impact-resistant than acrylic, but yellows faster.

    Can I use polycarbonate tubes for outdoor applications?

    No, this is not advisable. Polycarbonate tubes do not have a UV filter and the material will yellow quickly.

    Can I order samples of tubes?

    It is possible to order samples of clear, satin or opal tubes. These samples are meant to be able to look at the type of tube and its surface. Since we only sell tubes and rods per full length, we do not have residues. That is why it is not possible to order samples of every diameter and wall thickness. We have samples available in one diameter and wall thickness.
