DESCRIPTION

Monogal sheets meet the most demanding applications of machinery, automotive, safety and construction industry.

PROPERTIES

Monogal (Plazcarb) Polycarbonate extruded sheet is a very durable sheet that has high impact resistance. Monogal is stronger, usable in a higher temperature range and has better light transmission than many kinds of glass. Half the weight of glass and virtually unbreakable, Monogal sheets meet the most demanding applications of machinery, automotive, safety and construction industry – skylights, flat or curved glazing and a wide range of architectural projects. A special co-extruded layer is provided on one or both sides for enhanced long term weather resistance.

Applications

  • Plastic sheets for Glazing
  • Roofing and windows
  • Wind shields
  • Noise reduction barriers
  • Street furniture
  • Lighting and signage
  • Thermoforming, vacuum forming
  • Fabricated parts

Applications: ArchitectureInterior design and Sound Barriers

Features and Benefits

  • Virtually unbreakableHigh impact resistance
  • High clarity & light transmission
  • UV protective layer - 1 or 2 side
  • High flame resistant
  • Half the weight of glass
  • Easy to machine, handle and install
