    Polycarbonate is a clear, transparent plastic sheet with very high impact resistance. Transparent polycarbonate is 250x stronger than glass in the same thickness. Because of this characteristic, it is excellent to be used as security glazing or protection that must be vandal-proof, burglary-proof and with 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 exception of airports, there you can only use PETG). Polycarbonate is having the fire certification Bs1D0 according to EN 13501-1 and is allowed to be used in public spaces, because of the high-temperature resistance. Lexan sheets are self-extinguishing and fire retardant. Another characteristic of this material is that it is easy to cold bend it without cracking. Polycarbonate is unbreakable! Furthermore, the sheets are 50% lighter than glass and are UV-resistant.

    Stock clear polycarbonate

    PyraSied has transparent polycarbonate sheets on stock in 0,75 – 15 mm thickness. Sheets up to 1,5mm thick have the maximum sheet size of 2050x1250mm. Other thicknesses have a sheet size of 30502050mm.  Are you looking for thicker material? Then it can be supplied from factory stock. Please contact our sales & support department for more information. If you want to have more choice in colours and thicknesses, then we advise using acrylic. Acrylic is optically purer than polycarbonate and scratches less easily.

    This material is also available in colours. You can choose from smoke brown and anthracite. Besides colours, we also have an impact-resistant mirror in silver available.

    PyraSied has impact-resistant polycarbonate available with a glossy surface with and without a UV-protective surface. For extra high breaking strength, we can produce custom-made Makrolon® Titan sheets in 18 and 20mm thick.
