Discover the brilliance of our Polycarbonate (PC) Tubes, the clearest extruded tubes on the market. These tubes are known for their exceptional clarity, superior performance, and durability, making them a top choice for a wide range of applications.

Key Features:

  • Optical Purity: Flawless optics and a perfectly smooth surface free of striations.
  • UV Stability: Reasonably UV stable and weatherproof, though not suited for long-term outdoor use (may yellow over time).
  • Versatile Application: Ideal for exhibition stands, furniture design, technical applications (like reactors), and architectural lighting.
  • Innovative Lighting Solutions: Our Satin Frost Polycarbonate Tubes create impressive lighting effects with a velvety, non-glare surface.

Customization and Handling:

  • Ease of Machining: Can be cut, sanded, and drilled with appropriate tools. Requires high cutting speeds and effective cooling to avoid overheating and local thermal stress.
  • Avoid Melting: Use water-based cooling lubricants during drilling to prevent excess friction and melting.
  • Stress Elimination: Annealing may be necessary to eliminate internal stress.

Other Properties:

  • Resistance to Hot Water/Bases: Resistant
  • Resistance to Weathering: Moderate
  • Flammability (UL94): HB (listed for 0.4 and 1.5 mm thickness) (DIN IEC 60695-11-10)
  • Water Absorption: 0.06% (24h/96h at 23°C) (DIN EN ISO 62)

Applications:

  • Stand and Exhibition Building: Perfect for creating visually stunning displays.
  • Furniture and Interior Design: Adds a modern, clear aesthetic.
  • Technical Applications: Often used in reactors and other technical setups.
  • Architectural Lighting: Ideal for creating impressive lighting effects with our Satin Frost Polycarbonate Tubes.
