Replacing glass with plastic?
Plastic will never fully replace glass. Both materials retain their own specific characteristics ideal for the uses they are selected for. Nevertheless, in areas subject to shocks, where visibility and protection are mandatory, the use of polycarbonate glazing is most appropriate.
In addition to its optical qualities, new CLEARGARD OPTI PLUS® has
resolved the problem of polycarbonate abrasion, which has the effect of reducing product life, thanks to CLEARGARD® abrasionresistant coating and curved window glazing. CLEARGARD® is a registered PLASTRANCE trademark.
Two times lighter than glass but 250 times stronger, the properties of CLEARGARD® polycarbonate safety glazing products make them the breakage-resistant and anti-crossing materials par excellence.
