PyraSied has transparent polycarbonate tubes in diameters from Ø 10 mm – 250 mm with wall thicknesses in 1,5, 2, 3, 4 and 5 mm for you in stock. You can order polycarbonate tubes per piece in our webshop.
Polycarbonate tubes are fire retardant, vandal-proof and extremely impact resistant. It is extruded from normal standard granulate and is not provided with a UV protective layer. Polycarbonate is optically less beautiful than acrylic tubes but is having a better fire certification (B1 according to the European norm). The tubes can be ordered per full length (+/-2000mm) and half-length (+/- 1000mm) and we can cut the tubes to size for you.
You can see the full collection of polycarbonate tubes on this page. We are having polycarbonate on stock with a diameter of Ø 10 mm up to 250 mm with wall thicknesses in 1.5, 2, 3, 4 and 5 mm. We also have XT tubes and GS tubes made of acrylic on stock in various diameters.
Polycarbonate tubes are mainly used for technical applications because of their impact resistance. 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.

Acrylic is optically more pure than polycarbonate. Polycarbonate, on the other hand, is much more impact-resistant than acrylic, but yellows faster.
No, this is not advisable. Polycarbonate tubes do not have a UV filter and the material will yellow quickly.
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.
