Polycarbonate provides an incredible array of product applications in the commercial construction and manufacturing industries. Common brand names include Lexan, Monogal, and Makrolon. Polycarbonate offers excellent optical clarity with a unique combination of properties, which can make it an excellent candidate for safety and security glazing to suit a wide range of applications. The shatter resistant material can be cut and drilled with standard tools without the risk of cracking. Polycarbonate’s durability allows customers to use a thinner sheet to achieve the same results as glass or acrylic
