Solarshield - Transparent IR Protection
VULCAN Solarshield comes with a Greenish tint, and is an inorganic, nano-structured, IR-protection based pigment designed as a solar heat protection application. Solarshield attenuates longer wavelength heat producing infrared radiation very effectively through reflection, but at the same time, retains high clarity, more than 50% of visible light transmission rate, and virtually unnoticeable compared to standard VULCAN Valuview Clear sheets. Being weathering stable means there is no fear of IR-protection loss during weathering and nor does it change color.
Solarshield is an IR-protection additive that is designed to work with polycarbonate sheets as a solar heat protection application that attenuates longer wavelength heat-producing infrared radiation very effectively through reflection. Reflected IR means that surface temperatures of the PC sheets remains low, which prolongs the lifespan of the sheet. VULCAN Solarshield comes with a 15 year limited warranty*.
Solarshield is an inorganic, nano structured pigment clear transparent in polycarbonate. Being weathering stable means no loss of IR-protection during weathering.
Excellent Heat Reflective Properties
Excellent Light tranmission - Controlled NIR (780~2500nm) - Capable of reducing temperatures up to 10°c* in a ventilated environment.
Light Transmission Rate
Excellent Light tranmission - Controlled VIS (380~780nm) - 50% light transmission rate.
High Impact Resistance
250 times the impact strength over glass and 10 times over FRP and Acrylic.
VULCAN polycarbonate sheets use only 100% Virgin Covestro UV stabilizer included master-batch.
Total UV Protection
Co-extruded with the Base Material, Clariant CESA Light UV and Stabilizers blocks harmful UV rays from 280~400nm. With CESA Light coating, VULCAN Polycarbonate sheets are able to last 15 years or more.
Clean Room Manufacturing
VULCAN Sheets are produced in Class 5000 clean rooms to ensure an impeccable quality.
Co-Extrusion ensures evenly spread, evenly thick base material and UV coating.
