Frequently Asked Polycarbonate Question

Q: How do you clean polycarbonate sheets?

A: A mild household detergent may be used with a soft rag. Never use aggressive or abrasive cleaning agents or glass window cleaners; they can chemically attack and damage sheets.

Note: This is only a general guideline. Exact requirements are project specific.

101 Uses of Polycarbonate: #1 Art Piece/Display

Art PieceArt PieceVersatile multiwall polycarbonate is suitable for architectural, decorative art, display and trade show booths, and exhibit back walls. Because of its translucent quality, multiwall polycarbonate can be used to create state-of-the-art display windows or panels in electronic displays.

Transparent multiwall polycarbonate is an extremely durable plastic that resists shattering; making it preferable to glass since it is difficult to break or chip. Polycarbonate panels can easily be fabricated into any custom shape with a few basic woodworking tools.

AmeriLux offers a full range of standard and custom colors, sizes, and gauges of multiwall polycarbonate panels that can be cold-formed to create many types of creative design projects.

101 Uses of Polycarbonate: #32 Exterior Signage

6mm White Polycarbonate Exterior SignDurable multiwall polycarbonate is ideal for outdoor signage applications due to its lightweight structure and high impact strength even in extreme temperatures. UV-resistant polycarbonate panels offer excellent aesthetics, withstand abuse, and are available in a full range of standard and custom colors, sizes, and gauges.

Multiwall polycarbonate panels can be screen printed with high-gloss UV inks that will weather extremely well. Resistant to sunlight, rain and snow, polycarbonate exterior signage panels last in the outdoors for many years without showing signs of fading, yellowing or discoloration.

The use of multiwall polycarbonate is becoming more common in the signage industry, especially in applications where any of its main features—light in weight, high impact resistance, formability, and weatherability—are required, making it ideal for exterior custom sign applications.
