Description Clear polycarbonate sheet 8 mm

Polycarbonate is a sturdy, hard and transparent material. This polycarbonate sheet is 8 mm thick and transparent in colour. This material is often used as a substitute for glass because it is just as clear and 250 times stronger. Add to that its self-extinguishing and fire-retardant properties and you have the perfect material for safety glazing. We saw the polycarbonate sheet for you for free. This is then ready for dispatch within 48 hours, neatly provided with protective film on both sides.

Specifications

Clear polycarbonate sheets are extremely resistant to high temperatures and UV radiation. The sheets do not yellow in the sun; this makes this material very suitable for outdoor applications. Clear polycarbonate is a bit more scratch-sensitive than glass. We therefore recommend that you polish the sheets to maintain clarity. Do you want to keep them clean and dust-free for a long time? Then clean the plates with an anti-static cleaner.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • We use a minimum area of 100 cm2 per item. In addition, the minimum length and width is 10 cm. Do you need a specific size? Then we will saw your order for you for free.
  • Polycarbonate sheets are available in crystal clear, opal white (28% translucent), grey tinted and brown tinted.
  • Polycarbonate sheets come in two types. In addition to the solid polycarbonate sheets from our range, there are also channel plates. These are extruded plates that have "bulkheads" over the entire length, which obstruct a clear view. We only sell solid (monolithic) polycarbonate sheets.
  • In order to calculate easily which polycarbonate sheet is most suitable for your application, we have developed the thickness calculator aid. Choose a vertical or horizontal installation and look up the length and width that you have in mind in the table. This will show you the thickness that you need. No rights can be derived from the thickness calculator aid. If you want to be sure that you have selected the correct thickness, then please contact us for more advice.
