Valuview SOLID FLAT Series

Polycarbonate sheets, owing to its high clarity and visible light transmission rate amongst plastic materials, are the most widely used glazing material on roofings, skylights, greenhouses and wall claddings.

VULCAN Polycarbonate Solid FLAT sheet is 250 times over of glass, 10 times over FRP and Acrylic Sheets in impact strength.

Solid Flat sheets are also capable of stopping bullets and often used for security purposes.

Its high impact strength and light weight, ease of installation, fireproof and weather resistant properties make them the perfect choice for civil construction and safety glazing.

VULCAN Polycarbonate Solid FLAT sheets come in sheets and rolls, and is customizable.

VALUVIEW Series

VULCAN Valuview Series is targeted towards projects seeking optimal price versus value.  VULCAN Valuview come in 5 standard colors and fully customizable in size and length to meet your requirements.  Special colors can also be produced upon request.  All VULCAN polycarbonate sheets carrying the Valuview name use 100% Virgin UV stabilized Covestro resin.  As an added option, sheets can be co-extruded with Clariant CESA-Light UV and Light Stabilizers for extended lifespan and added protection against light transmission losses and yellowing caused by excessive exposure to solar radiation.

 


Product Strengths

Base Material
VULCAN polycarbonate sheets use only 100% Virgin Covestro UV stabilizer included master-batch.

UV Resistant Coating
​Co-extruded with the Base Material, the Clariant CESA Light UV and Light Stabilizers blocks harmful UV rays from 280~400nm. With co-extruded UV protection, VULCAN Polycarbonate sheets last 10 years or more.

Production Method
Co-Extrusion ensures evenly spread, evenly thick base material and UV coating.

Clean Room Manufacturing
VULCAN Sheets are produced in Class 5000 clean rooms to ensure an impeccable quality.
