    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.
