Polikorbanat-new polymer, whose properties can be attributed to plastic materials engineering class. Polycarbonate is, basically, two, or three-layer panels with stiffening ribs, which are highly light transmission and good mechanical properties. Physico-mechanical properties of polycarbonate are the same in a much wider than that of acrylic, temperature range (-45 C to +120 C) and shock resistant polycarbonate glass is more than a hundred times, and more than acrylic is almost ten times. Polycarbonate – a product of polycondensation diphenylolpropane and phosgene (carbonic acid chloride). Polycarbonate panels are not replace the glass or glazing in all designs.
But if you wisely use polycarbonate panels, they can help architects to develop durable, comfortable, plastic of various buildings and structures. The same material is produced in different colors. Besides the great advantages of polycarbonate and has some shortcomings that need to pay attention when in use. As with any plastic material, prone to thermal expansion than material structures. In the design, especially in the flat covered with large size, this feature requires special technical solutions. There are also mechanical damage surface of the sheet, such as a glass. To protect from damage the surface of sheets you can handle the special coating, or leave a protective polyethylene coating to the end of the installation.
Wide industrial use is made of the following types of sheet material of polycarbonate 1.Sotovy (cellular) polycarbonate. Polycarbonate is the most common type of polycarbonate, used in the construction industry today. Due to the low specific weight polycarbonate construction of a light and airy. The material has a high flexibility and durability, making it possible to produce sheets with very thin walls (0.3-0.7 mm) extrusion method without loss of shock-resistant characteristics and at the same time with very low birth weight. Due to the large number of voids decreases the weight of the sheet, and thus reduces its cost.
