Adhesives for Polycarbonate Plastic Sheets

When binding polycarbonate sheets, you’ll want to apply an industrial adhesive that will not visibly alter your design. The best option for this would be a clear non yellowing adhesive. The most common adhesives used on polycarbonate sheets are cyanoacrylates adhesive, two-part epoxy resin adhesive, two-part resin based adhesive and UV curable adhesive.

Are Polycarbonate Sheets Flexible?

Polycarbonate sheets are inherently flexible and available in a variety of grades based on application. Most polycarbonate sheets are pliable and can be bent at room temperature without cracking. Due to this flexibility combined with its impact resistance (250x stronger than glass), polycarbonate panels are often used for bullet resistant glass, and similar protective gear, exterior architecture, and greenhouses.

Does Polycarbonate Shatter?

While polycarbonate can be dented, it is extremely shatter resistant. In fact, polycarbonate is 250 times stronger than glass and can undergo significant deformations without cracking or breaking. A sheet of polycarbonate can provide impact protection from storms, projectiles like golf balls, and can even be fashioned into bullet resistant glass. Despite its exceptional durability, polycarbonate is far more lightweight than glass.

Why Are Polycarbonate Sheets So Strong?

The polymers in polycarbonate have an exceptionally strong bond to the carbonate groups in polycarbonate’s chemical chain. This forms a “crosslink” that is extremely difficult to break. polycarbonate is also very flexible, which allows it to absorb and distribute the impact of powerful projectiles without breaking or shattering. This makes polycarbonate ideal for patios, awnings, and greenhouses.

How Long Will Polycarbonate Last?

Polycarbonate sheets and panels will slowly change color and start to yellow if it is directly exposed to UV rays for a very long time. To prevent this, some polycarbonate sheets use a special coating that inhibits the transmission of UV light, providing additional protection to the polycarbonate sheet. Ultimately, the longevity of polycarbonate strongly depends on the use case – without prolonged exposure to high amounts of heat, pressure, or UV rays, polycarbonate can last for many years. Otherwise, UV rays from the sun will slowly degrade polycarbonate, eventually turning the polycarbonate yellow and brittle.

What is the Best Way to Clean Polycarbonate Sheets?

For the most thorough cleaning, use Novus #1 cleaner and a soft, microfiber cloth. For a simple, routine cleaning, polycarbonate panels should be cleaned using a mild soap, lukewarm water and a soft cloth. Avoid using ammonia-based cleaners such as Windex, 409, and Lysol, or abrasive cleaning products like scrubbing brushes or paper towels. This will damage the UV resistant coating that is present on most polycarbonate sheets. Keep in mind that using non-recommended cleaners often voids the manufacturer’s warranty.

Does Polycarbonate Scratch Easily?

A standard polycarbonate sheet is susceptible to scratching. However, manufacturers have resolved this concern by creating special coatings that protect from most scratches and abrasions. The exact level of scratch protection depends on the chemical composition of the coating. Keep in mind that although polycarbonate can scratch, this will not significantly compromise its ability to resist high impacts and extreme temperatures, especially when compared to acrylic and glass.

Is Polycarbonate Hygroscopic?

Polycarbonate is a hygroscopic engineering polymer, so it can attract and absorb moisture from its surrounding environment at room temperature. However, this isn’t an issue for most roofinggreenhouse, and pergola applications. Over its entire lifespan, a polycarbonate sheet will typically absorb only 0.2% of its weight in moisture. Other engineering polymers that are hygroscopic include nylon, ABS, acrylic, PET and more.

What Is the Difference Between Polypropylene and Polycarbonate?

The primary difference between polypropylene and polycarbonate is their strength. Polycarbonate has exceptional tensile and flexural strength, while polypropylene provides slightly above average tensile and flexural strength. Polypropylene is also significantly less expensive than polycarbonate.

Polypropylene is a low density, highly transparent, and flexible plastic that can be recycled. This makes it ideal for packaging and textile applications. A common use for polypropylene is for a living hinge, which is the very thin piece of plastic that connects bottles caps and lids. Polypropylene is used since it can be bent to extreme ranges, millions of times without breaking.

Polycarbonate has high impact strength, excellent transparency, good optical clarity and is lightweight. Common uses for polycarbonate include roofing, windows, safety equipment and machine guards.

On a molecular level, polypropylene and polycarbonate are rather similar. They’re both synthetic polymer compounds composed of very large molecules that are created by bonding simpler chemical units, called monomers. The primary difference in their structure is caused by the monomers and processes used to create the polymer.

Polycarbonate Sheets Clear and Colored Glass & Plastic Sheet 2021

Electrical and thermal transmission takes place when there is mobility or vibration between atoms within the material surface. Polycarbonates are made up of methyl and phenyl groups which eliminate the mobility of molecules within the polycarbonate structure. This is due to high covalent forces that exist between the molecules of the phenyl group and the adjacent molecules.

This results into high thermal resistance and high viscosity of polycarbonate materials.In most cases,a glazing sheet/panel can be manufactured with more than one polycarbonate sheet thereby improving the insulation properties of the overall polycarbonate sheets.

They can maintain rigidity up to a temperature of 140°C and toughness up to a temperature of -20°C. Apparently,the polycarbonate manufacturing companies have been trying to alter the inherent property of polycarbonates with and aim of improving their thermal and electrical resistance properties.

Polycarbonate sheet,Polycarbonate sheet

They can withstand up to 135°C.

During fire outbreak,they are generally self-extinguishing.They burn at a very slow rate with the flame retardant grades available for a number of industrial and domestic applications.

Such polycarbonates are taken through severe flammability tests.A number of polycarbonates grades have a thermal coefficient of expansion of about 65x 10-6.

Dimension stability

The rigidity of the polymer chain due to the existence of both the phenyl and methyl structure has been the main reason for polycarbonate sheet/panel’s dimensional stability.

A number of materials with an amorphous structure are dimensionally stable.When polycarbonates are exposed to high stretching forces,they can experience very little elongation.

This explains why PC sheets/panels do not rapture even when they subjected to fluctuating temperature.

In a laboratory or a manufacturing set up,there are a number of tests which can be conducted to establish the polycarbonate’s mechanical strength,optical properties,etc.

It may involve establishing the polycarbonate’s density,degree of flammability,radiant resistance,Young’s modulus of elasticity,tensile strength,elongation at break,Poisson’s ratio,coefficient of friction,melting temperature,thermal diffusivity,linear expansion,dielectric constant,relative permeability,specific heat capacity,dissipation factor,resistivity,etc.

Chemical properties of polycarbonates

The chemical properties of polycarbonate sheets/panels are as essential as the physical and mechanical properties.

Normally,the chemical properties play a significant role when choosing a specific grade of polycarbonate material for an industrial application.Some of the most important chemical properties to consider include:

Polycarbonate Sheets or Panels - 15 Great Installation Tips

Water absorption

A number of polycarbonate manufacturing companies tend to analyze the degree of water and moisture absorption of all polycarbonate grades. Unlike other materials whose mechanical properties are affected by moisture or water absorption, polycarbonate’s mechanical properties are not affected by water and moisture absorption.

This is the main reason why this panels are used in glazing applications.

Polycarbonates absorb small quantities of water which is less than < 0.6%. When polycarbonates are washed with hot water after a long period of time, they may begin to decompose. The decomposition process reduces the ability of polycarbonate sheets to withstand impact or shock.

Polycarbonates offer limited retraction during molding. Its ability to absorb low moisture/humidity makes it have good dimensional stability, especially in a humid atmosphere. It should be dried carefully in an oven that has been ventilated or a drier at a temperature of 120° C and 0.1% humidity. During injection molding, it should be subjected to higher pressures of between 800 bars and 1800 bars.

Chemicals

the polycarbonate manufacturers recommend certain cleaning agents which do not affect the basic chemical structure of polycarbonates.

Generally,polycarbonate product sheets and products are not attacked by most organic acids and diluted acids.

However,it is important to note that polycarbonates are partially soluble in a number of halogenous hydrocarbons.Strong bases like ammonia may attack polycarbonate sheets.

Apart from various solvents,polycarbonate can be affected by light.Generally,polycarbonates are fairly stable in ozone,however,they are not ultraviolet light stable.

Test and analysis of polycarbonates

Test and analysis of polycarbonates

Testing and analyzing various properties of polycarbonates is a sure way of choosing the right polycarbonate grade for a particular task.

During the manufacturing process,the mechanical,optical and thermal properties are tested.Of course,there are very many tests which can be conducted to verify just one property of a polycarbonate sheet.Some of these tests include:

The impact analysis test

This one of the ways to determine the ability of a polycarbonate product to withstand a wide range of impacts or forces.

Polycarbonates can maintain an outstanding impact within a wide range of temperature (between -40°C and 120°C).

Even though polycarbonates are inherently strong,these properties should be verified to avoid chances of failing when they are used in windstorms,snowstorms etc.

These test should assure the use that the material should remain unbreakable in all weather conditions.

impact analysis test of polycarbonate sheet

“A” is polycarbonate sheet

Normally,the material to be analyzed is clamped and polyamide balls of varying diameters are fired towards the sheet using a pressurized gun.

This test is conducted based on the fact that,under normal conditions,a hailstone with a diameter of about 20mm may reach the surface with terminal velocity of about 21m/s.

Tensile strength

Polycarbonate manufacturers analyze this property to determine the extent to which a polycarbonate can resist breakage when subjected to tensile strength.

The ultimate tensile strength has to be determined.In most cases,the polycarbonate sheet/panel can be pulled apart at a rate of 0.2 inches/minute to 20 inches/minute.

During this test, the tensile elongation and the tensile modulus of elasticity are key factors which should be examined.

A polycarbonate material should have an ultimate tensile strength of about 70Mpa.Elongation and a tensile modulus of 2.6GPa.

tensile strength of polycarbonate sheet

Thermal properties tests

By analyzing this property,the end user will be able to select the right polycarbonate grade for a number of electrical installation equipment.During this test and analysis,the following aspects are examined:

  1. The glass transition point which can be from the infection point of a refractive index at a temperature between 141 °C and 149 °C.This depends on the molecular weight of the polycarbonate.
  2. The melting point;the melting point of most polycarbonates are within the temperature of between 230 °C and 260 °C.This requires about 134J/g of heat.
  3. The dispersion temperature;this is where the micro Brownian motion in molecules occur.
  4. Thermal conductivity and specific heat;it changes with the temperature of the polycarbonate sheet.This is also analyzed alongside the coefficient of thermal expansion.
  5. Deflection temperature;a change in deflection temperature will be determined by the amount of load/stress on the polycarbonate sheet.

During the manufacturing process,all the thermal characteristics which affect the performance of a polycarbonate sheet have to be analyzed.

It is for this reason that the polycarbonate manufacturing industries have installed ultramodern thermal testing equipment.

The light transmission tests

The degree of light transmission is a major concern considering that polycarbonate sheets are used in glazing applications. Even though polycarbonates can transmit over 90% of light, their surface can be modified to reduce the amount of light passing through the sheet. At times, both refraction and diffusion can be modified to make it suitable for certain applications such as in the construction of greenhouses.

Polycarbonate Panels | EXTECH, Inc.

Polycarbonates turn yellow if not treated with anti UV light. This is a critical issue that should be tested and analyzed. During this process, light is classified as UV-B middle UV region, UV-A near-ultraviolet region,near-infrared region, middle infra-red region, and visible light region.

Normally,they are designed to be nearly opaque to both UV radiation and far infra-red region.The polycarbonate manufactures use this as a shield to prevent the discoloration of the polycarbonate sheet.

These are some of the most common tests and aspects which are analyzed in the industrial setup. For every application, there are certain properties that play a significant role. It is these properties that be analyzed to optimize the performance of the polycarbonate sheet.

For example,in areas which are prone to fire outbreak,these companies will focus more on thermal and frame retarding properties.

Classification of polycarbonates

Classification of polycarbonate sheet

A polycarbonate sheet is formed through condensation polymerization where carbon (C) is bonded with three oxygen (O) atoms.

Even though polycarbonates are inherently tough and can be used for virtually all applications,these properties can be improved to meet certain criteria for specific applications.

For example,in situations where insulation is of a priority,they are multi-wall polycarbonates form a perfect choice.Some of the most common types of polycarbonates include:

Solid polycarbonate

The available polycarbonate sheets/panels can be classified as either solid or hollow polycarbonate sheets.

The hollow polycarbonate sheets air space in between its structure while the solid polycarbonate sheet is compact in design.

Generally,the superior polycarbonate sheets are superior to the hollow polycarbonate sheets due to their optimal impact strength and high light transmission.

This is the main reason why they are used in applications where urgent light is required such as in greenhouses,lamp boxes,hooting light etc.

polycarbonate solid sheet

They are available in a number of configurations such as the general purpose (GP),hard coated,light diffuser,anti-fog polycarbonate sheet and many others.

Features of solid polycarbonates

They have exception light transmission with up to more than 89% light transmission.This is due to the extreme clarity of these sheets.

However,the degree of light transmission can be modified by texturing or tinting its surface.They have a UV protection layer which protects it against the UV light which can cause the surface to turn yellow.

Impact strength;The solid structure of the polycarbonates gives them a high impact strength than most plastics and other glazing materials.Their impact strength is 200 times greater than that of glass and 10 times tougher than that of a toughened glass.

Lightweight;It is one half the weight of glass (considering the same volume).This results into significant costs savings since the overall structure may not require additional reinforcement.

In addition to this, it will also save on freight costs.

Thermal insulation;Generally,the solid polycarbonates have a lower thermal conductivity which reduces the loss of thermal heat.

Building which have been constructed with these polycarbonates may not require additional air conditioning systems.

Waltzer Multiwall Polycarbonate Sheets: Amazon.in: Industrial & Scientific

Flame resistance;They have a high ignition temperature of about 580°C.The solid polycarbonates have been rated B1.

There are several factors which distinguish the solid polycarbonate sheets from other polycarbonate sheets which are used in glazing application. They include:

  • The construction;these polycarbonates have only one single layer as opposed to two or more layers which is a common scenario with the hollow polycarbonate products.
  • Weight;even though they have a lightweight,they are heavier than the hollow polycarbonate sheets since they do not have air spaces within their structure.
  • Thermal insulation;even though polycarbonate sheets are poor conductors of heat and electricity,the hollow polycarbonate sheets have superior insulation properties.This is because they trap air in between it the layers which act as additional insulator.
  • Price;the solid polycarbonate sheets are more expensive than the hollow polycarbonate sheets.In the solid polycarbonate sheets,more of the polycarbonate resin is required to manufacture a sheet of the same size as the hollow polycarbonate sheets.
  • Sound insulation;the solid polycarbonates offer better sound insulation properties than the hollow polycarbonates sheets.It is for this reason that they are used in applications which require sound proof sheets.
Solid Polycarbonate

Hollow polycarbonates

This is the second category of polycarbonate sheets.These sheets are manufactured with some spaces in between the layers.

One distinct feature about hollow polycarbonate sheets is that they require small quantity of raw materials as compared to the solid sheets.

polycarbonate hollow sheet

Examples of hollow polycarbonate sheets

The hollow polycarbonate sheets are also referred to as cellular,channel,multi-wall or structural polycarbonate sheets.

They are referred to as cellular polycarbonate sheet due to internal structure of the sheets which as a lot of air spaces.The unique feature of these glazing products include:

Polycarbonate Sheets Clear and Colored Glass & Plastic Sheet 2021

  • They have air spaces within the chamber which provide excellent thermal insulation.This is the reason why they are used in glazing applications where heat conservation is of essence.
  • The dividing walls act as supportive structure which provide a strong structural rigidness and flexibility of the polycarbonate sheet.

The hollow polycarbonate sheets are used in applications where transparency and high impact strength are of importance.

Their excellent physical strength,mechanical and electric property explain why it is a perfect choice in decoration and building industry.

The hollow polycarbonate sheets possess all the desirable physical and chemical properties of polycarbonate sheets such as high impact strength,light weight,light transmission,UV protection,easy installation,sound insulation,etc.

The most common types of hollow polycarbonate sheets include:

  1. The twin-wall polycarbonate sheets;these sheets are made up of two polycarbonate sheets with an air space and dividing walls between the walls.
  2. The triple wall polycarbonate sheets; they have three polycarbonate sheets which are separated with two layers of air spaces and dividing walls.

There those with four,five or six polycarbonate sheets.The number of walls and air space layers will depend on the desired U-value and R-value.

The U-value is used to determine the effectiveness of a material to be used as an insulator while the R-value is the measure of thermal resistance.

Ideally,the use of hollow polycarbonate sheets is designed to improve the insulation properties of the polycarbonate sheets.

The internal structure of the hollow polycarbonate sheets vary greatly depending on the magnitude of strength the hollow polycarbonate manufacturer would wish to achieve. Some of the most common internal structure are:

common internal structure

These are the most common internal structure viewed from one end

Apart from the excellent thermal characteristics which the hollow polycarbonate sheets possess,other features include:

  • Weight;they are not as heavy as the solid polycarbonate sheets.This reduces the shipping costs.Moreover,the overall structure will not require a lot of reinforcements which also reduces the overall construction cost.
  • Price;they are cheaper than the solid polycarbonate sheets since the manufacturing process require less raw materials as compared to the solid polycarbonate sheets.

Choosing the desired hollow polycarbonate sheet is a challenging process,more so,one which should offer optimal light transmission and diffusion.

It is for this reason that every polycarbonate sheet comes with their own data sheet where buyers can assess all the physical and mechanical properties.

These sheets come in different tints and their surfaces can be modified just like the solid polycarbonate sheets.All sheets should come with a warranty,especially that which protects them from turning yellow prematurely.

Corrugated polycarbonate

Corrugated polycarbonate sheet

The use of corrugated glazing materials is not a nascent technology.This technology has been used to manufacture a number of steel and iron roofing sheets.

The corrugated polycarbonate sheets have also gained popularity in the recent past due to the wide range of benefits they offer.

They have been designed to meet the specific manufacturing profile of the corrugated iron and steel sheets.Their corrugated nature makes them tough and strong to withstand high impact,especially when they are used in glazing applications.

Like other polycarbonate sheets and products,they possess all the desirable intrinsic features of polycarbonate resin.

Their surface and tints can be modified to alter certain features such as light transmission and light diffusion. Some of the most common tints include:

  • The clear corrugated sheets which can transmit 90% of light.
  • The Opal white corrugated sheets which can transmit up to 45% of light.
  •  The solar control silver which transmit about 20% of light.
  • Solar gray which can transmit about 35% of light.
  • Hunter gray and red brick which are known for minimal light transmission.

There are the custom made corrugated polycarbonate sheets which are mainly used by those companies and firms which would wish to have a completely unique glazing sheets.

corrugated polycarbonate sheets

Examples of corrugated polycarbonate sheets

Like other polycarbonate sheets which are used in the industrial and domestic applications,these corrugated sheets are protected against ultra-violet radiation which makes them to offer optimal performance for a very long period of time.

Advantages of corrugated polycarbonate sheets

Strength; the main idea of having the corrugated solid and hollow polycarbonate sheets is to add more mechanical and impact strength to these glazing sheets.

They are over 200 times stronger than other corrugated plastics.Furthermore,they can retain their mechanical strength within a wide range of temperature of between -40°C to 130°C.

This will reduce the maintenance cost and the guarantee safety of the overall structure.

Versatility;the corrugated sheets are rugged,thus,they can be used for virtually all glazing applications such as in skylight and greenhouse construction.

They can withstand adverse weather conditions such hailstorms,fluctuating temperature,etc.They are also flexible which makes the installation process easier and affordable.

Optical clarity;the modern corrugated sheet has been designed with additive which will ensure that the sheets retains its high degree of light transmission throughout its lifetime.

What are polycarbonate sheets used for?

Another benefit of polycarbonate is its insulating properties. It insulates better than glass, and thus when used for building purposes it can lower energy costs. Because it’s transparent, polycarbonate can be used in applications where glass is also used, like glazing security lights or covering skylights.

How long do polycarbonate sheets last?

about 10 years though polycarbonate is durable, it should be treated with UV protectant to prevent it from turning yellow or breaking down. With proper care, polycarbonate can last about 10 years, a fraction of how long glass lasts.
