Broadly, there are two main types of polycarbonate materials which are used in the construction process: the solid and the hollow polycarbonate sheets.
Polycarbonate hollow sheets are known to have superior thermal insulation and light weight; these are some of the main reasons why they are used in most construction work.
The hollow polycarbonate sheets are some of the newest materials which are used in the construction industry.
These materials are manufactured to meet the highest level of electrical, thermal, mechanical and physical properties.
Advantages of polycarbonate hollow sheets
- Impact resistance
- Flame resistance
- Light weight
- Weather resistance

How should you care for the hollow polycarbonate sheets?
There are a number of factors which will ensure that your polycarbonate sheets serve you efficiently and for a very long period of time. In most cases, the manufacturers do indicate all the important precautions.
Some of these essential procedures include:
Transportation and storage
They should not be exposed to excess sunshine or store in places where they can be drenched. All these materials should be placed either on a cement floor or against the wall.
Most of these materials are covered with protective films. This protection must be left intact unless you need to install them.
You should remove the protective films within the first day after the polycarbonate sheets have been installed. During the installation process, you need to leave enough space depending on the temperature difference with the region where the hollow carbonate sheets should be installed.
In case there is dirt or dust on the sheet’s surface, you need to wipe the dirt using a sponge which has been dipped in a neutral sanitizer, and then clean the PC sheet with warm water.
You have to dry it using a soft cloth. You should remember that as much as all these PC sheets are treated to make them scratch proof, polycarbonates are vulnerable to scratches.
