Technical Specification of Solid Polycarbonate Sheets

The solid polycarbonate panels satisfy the most important construction codes like:

  • CC-1* Category for construction applications (BOCA, ICBO, SBCCI)
  • Underwriters’ laboratory flammability standards (UL 94 and UL 972) for glazing materials.

To thermoform Macrolux Solid sheet is important pre-dry in a dehumidifier oven (circulatory air). The pre-drying time depends on the thickness of the sheet.

Cold bending

Macrolux Mono GP and SL polycarbonate sheets can be bent cold until a minimum curve radius depending on its thickness. As a rule, the radius of curvature should be equivalent to 100 times the material thickness. R = TX100

R = TX100
