Polycarbonate sheet (PC) is a strong, impact-resistant thermoplastic with exceptional dimensional stability and durability. It has a wide operating temperature range, is shatterproof, and has exceptional optical clarity (dependent on the grade).
We offer a variety of polycarbonate brands at Petron Thermoplast, each with its own set of benefits. Impex, our basic and most popular grade, is capable of withstanding repeated impact and is over 200 times stronger than glass. Impex is UV protected on all sides (except 1mm and 1.5mm) and can be used as a window or skylight.
It has the greatest operational temperature of any of the polycarbonates in our portfolio, with a B-s1, d0 fire classification according to EN 13501-1 (from 1.5mm to 6mm).
LexanTM is also available from Petron Thermoplast in a variety of grades, each with its unique set of features. As standard, we use Lexan ExellTM D, which is UV-protected on both sides and has exceptional impact resistance. LexanTM F2000 is another popular alternative, and because of its conformity to Indian standards, it is predominantly used as a polycarbonate on trains and rail carriages. Makrolon, which has exceptional weather resistance and long service life in outdoor applications, is also available.
Polycarbonate sheet is widely made into machine guards, social distancing screens, or CNC cut into custom shapes and may be machined, shaped, welded, and bonded. At Petron Thermoplast , we provide a plastic fabrication service, which allows us to create components to your exact requirements from dimensional drawings or samples.
