Description

PALSUN® combines ultra-high impact resistance with clarity, making it the material of choice for demanding applications. Virtually unbreakable, yet it is transparent as glass at less than half its weight. It can be cold bent and easily fabricated and formed, making it ideal for barrel vault roofing, skylights, architectural roofing and glazing. Clear, translucent and opaque sheets are also ideal as machine guards, sound barriers, anti-vandal and safety glazing. PALSUN® Diffuser and LB sheets are extensively used in durable light boxes.


Features and benefits:

  • Blocks harmful UV radiation.
  • Easy to handle and install.
  • Good acoustical insulation.
  • High clarity and light transmission.
  • High impact resistance - virtually unbreakable.
  • Lightweight.
  • Versatile and formable.
  • Weather and UV resistant.
  • Wide service temperature range.

Colour

Colour/ Finish:

PALSUN® is available in a wide variety of transparent, translucent and opaque colours. Opaque colours do not transmit light, whereas clear or tinted transparent colours transmit light and images. Clear and opaque sheets may have a glossy or embossed surface on one side. Opal or Diffuser sheets have 8–86% light transmission depending on the type of tint and the thickness of the sheet. SolarSmart™ cool-light sheets transmit fixed amounts of light (20, 35 or 50%) while reducing heat build up by filtering near-infrared radiation that generates heat.
