Textured Polycarbonate Sheets, its features and applications in Building Construction

Hey, did you know that Polycarbonate is a type of plastic that is made from a chemical name Bisphenol A and Phosgene? Also, Polycarbonate has a linear structure with repeating units of carbonate groups linked by organic groups.

Let’s understand more in this post about Textured Polycarbonate Sheet, its features, and why it is used in Building Construction in this post.

What is a Textured Polycarbonate Sheet?

A textured polycarbonate sheet is a type of polycarbonate sheet that has a textured surface on one or both sides. The texture varies from fine to coarse. They can create different effects such as matte, glossy, prismatic, embossed, or patterned.

Lotus Textured polycarbonate sheets are used for various applications where light diffusion, durability privacy, and aesthetics are desired.

Some of the benefits of using Textured Polycarbonate sheets are:

  • Light Weight & easy to transport
  • Durable and highly resistant to rain & snow, heat & sunlight, fire & impact.
  • Its translucent quality allows natural light to pass through while reducing heat gain.
  • While the textured surface creates a decorative effect, it also enables the diffusion of natural light including dispersion of light over a large area thus preventing glare and see-through vision.

This ‘unbreakable material’ is thermoplastic and possesses a lot of benefits, which is why it is significantly used in building and construction. From lighting to strengthening structural parts, polycarbonate is an extremely versatile and unique material. Here are some benefits of using polycarbonate in building and construction.

What are the applications of Textured Polycarbonate Sheets in Building Construction?
