Polycarbonate is a polymer which has its own very unique blend of desirable properties. The main uses for the polymer is to give it any shape by processing it in different ways which can include a number of different processes such as Injection moulding, blow moulding, extrusion and also thermoforming. Our polycarbonate roof sheeting are manufactured by the process that is extrusion.
Many polycarbonate roof sheets are mainly named transparent steel, this is because of their amazing impact resistance with their glass like clarity.
- Polycarbonate sheets possess superb impact strength (Virtually Unbreakable).
- Excellent flexural strength hence can be cold curved or even cold bent into simple shapes.
- Very high light transmission of upto 90%.
- Superlative fire performance (Self extinguishing) and TAC approved.
- Light in weight hence easy to handle & install.
- Available in tailored lengths, hence minimum wastages.
- High temperature tolerance from -40°C to +130°C).
- Excellent thermal and electrical insulation properties.
Due to the engineering of the thermoplastic, the polycarbonate sheets can be then thermoformed to enable them to be very suitable for numerous different applications where the need is of high performance with a combination of transparency and translucency. These plastic corrugated roof sheets can also be engineered to suit various innovative applications in the future.
Polycarbonate Corrugated Sheets
Polycarbonate sheets are very extensively used in many of the worlds Industrial Applications. You will see them mainly in Industrial Sky Lights and also many North Light Glazing which provides many daylight solutions within Industrial and also Commercial Structures. Many polycarbonate roof sheets are mainly available in a variety of popular profiles which match to commonly used industrial roofing sheets that include the needed asbestos cement sheets that are mainly needed, metal corrugated sheets, corrugated roof sheets and also plastic corrugated roof sheets.
Our polycarbonate corrugated sheets can be manufactured from very compact and clear, embossed or even opal white sheets, this all depends on how much light you are needing for the specific industrial application. The light transmission can be as high as 89% or controlled to as low as 35%. These sheets can be offered to the customer as a tailor-made product in terms of dimensions with the maximum size being 1100mm x 4270mm (Approximately 3.5 Ft x 14 ft). The process of forming these sheets is generally referred to as Thermoforming.
Reasons for using Corrugated / Profiled Polycarbonate Sheets
Industrial roofing is principally done with the help of various types of corrugated and profiled sheets which depend on the area of the industry, type of industrial process, emissions due to manufacturing activity, economic constraints and climatic conditions of the region, the sheets of choice could be asbestos cement corrugated sheets, colour coated metal corrugated sheets, galvanized iron sheets or even aluminium corrugated sheets.
If polycarbonate sheets match profile to the plasic corrugated roof sheets which are used on the roof, fixing the sheets will become extremely easy and highly cost effective due to the sheets can just slot into place with the attachments already being in place for the joints. Generally, the skylighting area in an industrial structure varies between 5% to 10% of the overall roof area. Flexituff Industries offers you the entire range of corrugations / profiles to match the roofing sheet of your choice, no matter how small or big the requirement may be.
