Work consisting of several 8 mm transparent polycarbonate sheets that cover the upper part of the roof allowing the passage of light but protecting from water.
Cellular polycarbonate can be specified in several sizes from 6 mm to 22 mm, the most common measures being 8 to 10 mm. They can be of several colors being also the transparent and the opal the most demanded.
Polycarbonates were born in the fifties as a result of the investigations that were being done in the branch of polyesters. In 1955, the American chemist D.W. Fox, discovered a transparent mass that had formed, in one of its storage bottles. What Fox did not know was that H. Schnell (Bayer) had already discovered the same plastic two years before. It is an amorphous and transparent plastic, with an acceptable working temperature of up to 135 ° C, together with very good mechanical and toughness properties, good chemical resistance (except alkalis) and good dimensional stability. Industrial production began in 1958. Regardless of German advances, by H. Schnell, General Electric (USA) also succeeded in manufacturing this new material, known as polycarbonate.
Polycarbonate, is a group of thermoplastics, easy to work, mold and thermoforming, and is widely used in modern manufacturing.
The name polycarbonate is based on the fact that it is a polymer that has functional groups linked by carbonate groups in a long molecular chain.
