    Compact opaque polycarbonate


    Compact opaque polycarbonate is a virtually unbreakable glazing material, which has very good resistance characteristics, as well as being very easy to work with and offering good final aesthetic results.


    Read on if you want to find out all about this type of plastic, which is widely used in both the domestic and industrial sectors.

    Description of opaque compact polycarbonate

    Compact polycarbonate is a type of plastic that you can find in various finishes:


    • Colourless polycarbonate
    • White opal polycarbonate
    • Anti-reflective polycarbonate
    • Opaque compact polycarbonate
    • Black opaque polycarbonate


    But what is compact polycarbonate?


    Here is a description of the opaque compact polycarbonate range. It is a thermoplastic that is characterised by its good resistance, both indoors and outdoors, its aesthetic finish and its lightness when it comes to installation.


    It is a material with the same transparency as glass, but much more resistant and half the weight. In addition to offering mechanical resistance to knocks and accidents, it can also withstand temperatures of up to 100º, at which other plastics would melt. Opaque polycarbonate sheets are able to maintain their optical and mechanical quality even at high temperatures.


    In addition to good thermal resistance, it is also very useful in areas exposed to vandalism or likely to be hit, thanks to the hardness of its composition. Thanks to its UV protection, opaque compact polycarbonate is good for being exposed to the elements, ensuring that sunlight can enter the interior without problems.


    At Plastic Express we work with this material to transform it depending on the needs of each client. It can be easily drilled, cut and even curved to the desired shape using the following techniques:


    • CNC machining of polycarbonate.
    • Polishing and polishing of polycarbonate
    • Polycarbonate bending
    • Gluing of polycarbonate
    • Printing on polycarbonate
