Q: In the case of a fire, what would happen to a polycarbonate sheet?
A: Like any plastic, a polycarbonate sheet will burn but it will burn at a very slow rate. Self-extinguishing when removed from the flame source.
Polycarbonate sheets have good fire behavior characteristics. Their flammability rate is low and they do not contribute significantly to the spread of a fire nor do they release toxic fumes.
Polycarbonate sheets receive high fire performance ratings, meeting the requirements of stringent fire-performance building codes and standards.
Because of their high fire resistance, polycarbonate sheets are a recommended choice for glazing applications in school, hospitals, and other public venues.
