Tuflite Corrugated Sheets
Tuflite Corrugated UV Co-extruded profiled polycarbonate sheets have been engineered to suit industrial roof lighting and daylight caldding applications for a wide array of specific needs . These include industries, warehouses , commercial structures and also residences. Sunlight is abudantly available during the daytime and TUFLITE Sheets help you to conveniently harness this boundless resource resulting in reduction of eneregy costs and reducing the effects of industrialization on the environment. TUFLITE Corrugated UV Sheets provide excellent impact resistance,a very wide range of light tranmission options and enhanced safety due to its excellent fire resistant(self extinguishing)properties.
The co-extruded UV protective layer ensures that the sheets have superior resistance to weathering and the mechanical & optical properties of the sheets remain intact for an extended period of time . In a nutshell , TUFLITE Corrugated UV sheets are 250 times stronger than glass, suitable for extreme weather conditions and can be deployed for use in hostile chemical environments. TUFLITE sheets are corrosion resistant and other offer near total protection from harmful Ultraviolet radiation of the sun.
TUFLITE Corrugated UV sheets are available in clear transparent, embossed and textured options. Typical applications for TUFITE Corrugated UV sheets include roofing and cladding daylight in industrial sheds, warehouses and public buildings, central atria in shopping malls, swimming pool roofs, greeenhouses, verandas, pergolas, patio covers, swnings, carports , gazebos and the list can go on
Properties of TUFLITE Corrugated Sheets:
Fire Retardant (Self Extinguishing)
TUFLIITE Corrugated UV Sheets have an excellent flammability rating ( UL94 V-2) are self extinguishing and suitable for use in areas prone to fire . These sheets do not release toxic gases and are comparatively much less flammable than GRP & Acrylic ( PMMA ) sheets.
Excellent Impact Resistance
TUFLITE Corrugated UV sheets possess exceptional impact resistance. Manufactured from high quality Bayer polycarbonate resin, which has 250 times the impact strength of glass and up to 40 times that of Acrylic ( PMMA) sheets of similar thickness. TUFLITE Corrugated UV sheets are virtually unbreakable.
Handling with ease
Due to their relatively light weight and high impact strength , TUFLITE Corrugated UV sheets are convenient to store , handle and install . Conventional tools can be used to cut , trim or drill holes in the sheet.
TUFLITE Corrugated UV sheets are resistant to a wide range of chemicals. They are generally unaffected by acids, alcohols, glycols, mineral oils, animal and vegetable fats, kerosene and non-abrasive cleaners. However they are affected by benzene, petrol, ketones, acetones, phenols chlorinated and aromatic hydrocarbons, petroleum based plants, abrasive cleaners and solvents.

- Firmly place the sharp point of the self fastening fixing onto the crest of the corrugation to be fixed, to eliminate "skidding" or "wandering".
- Commence drilling at 2000rpm to pierce the sheet. Screw engages in steel purlin.
- Cutter engages polycarbonate sheet, cuts the expansion hole and centers the screw.
- Wait until the rubber weather seal engages and compresses against the roof sheet and under the fixing head , to stop.
