Q: Are polycarbonate panels “virtually unbreakable”?
A: No product is completely indestructible. However, polycarbonate is a durable, exceedingly tough transparent thermoplastic that is virtually unbreakable and shatterproof.
One of the biggest advantages of polycarbonate is its high impact resistance and outstanding strength. Polycarbonate panels have the ability to dissipate the energy of an impact without breaking.
In other words, polycarbonate gets its strength from being flexible, meaning, it “gives a little” when impacted.
