Longlife Polycarbonate Sheet

Featuring a co-extruded UV protection on both sides of the sheet cutting out 98% of harmful UV radiation.

Longlife polycarbonate is a superior glazing material that features a co-extruded UV protection to both sides of the sheet which prevents damaging UV radiation from penetrating the sheet. As a Longlife polycarbonate is ideal for use in some of the world’s toughest climatic conditions as its UV protection leads to longer sheet life expectancy, prevents yellowing and guards against loss of strength. It also cuts out 98% of the harmful UV radiation to protect those working or playing beneath it. It is ideal for outdoor use such as architectural rooflights, vertical glazing and specialist glazing applications.

Longlife polycarbonate is also available with a Strong Adhesion Film (SAF), aimed at high-end engineering and fabrication projects that require extra protection during repeated processing, including milling, drilling, bending, cutting and thermoforming.
