General Purpose Polycarbonate sheet is a polished surface, UV stabilized polycarbonate for use in glazing and industrial applications.

General Purpose Polycarbonate sheet is used extensively in school and factory glazing for protection against both accidental breakage and deliberate vandalism. In manufacturing environments, this high-impact material excels in applications like machine guards, noise abatement shields, clear work station partitions, freight doors and other in-plant glazing.
