Polycarbonate Twinwall - Bronze

 

Polycarbonate Twinwall Overview
What is twin wall polycarbonate?

Twinwall polycarbonate is made up of two polycarbonate layers while multiwall polycarbonate is made up of three or more polycarbonate layers. These layers are fused together using a process called co-extrusion.

Twinwall and multiwall are ideal glazing materials for outdoor applications because of their high impact resistance, durability, and insulation properties. Twinwall and multiwall polycarbonate provide superior insulation against temperature and noise, and the sheet is lightweight and easy to install. Twinwall and multiwall’s high impact resistance make them a perfect choice for storm protection, while their UV protection properties make them an ideal choice for greenhouses and windows.

How long does twinwall polycarbonate last?

Twinwall polycarbonate generally has a lifespan of 10 years in exterior applications.

Is twinwall polycarbonate flexible?

Twinwall polycarbonate is stronger, more flexible, and more impact resistant than glass while weighing significantly less. It be cold formed or easily machined to fit a variety of configurations and applications.

What is twinwall made out of?

Twinwall is made up of two layers of polycarbonate sheet attached by smaller pieces of material, leaving channels of empty space in-between. Polycarbonate, also abbreviated as PC, is an amorphous engineering thermoplastic that is made by the condensation of carbonic acid and bisphenol. The design of twinwall gives the material strong impact resistance and weight support.

Can you cut twinwall polycarbonate?

Twinwall polycarbonate can be cut with standard equipment such as circular saws, hand saws, and hacksaws. It is important to not remove any protective film before cutting the material. If any shavings get into the flutes of the twinwall, the shavings can be removed with a can of pressurized air or a vacuum.
