Tuflite / PALRAM Polycarbonate Sheet

PALSUN® Flat Solid Polycarbonate Sheet

PALSUN® combines superior impact resistance and clarity, making it the material of choice for many demanding applications. It is virtually unbreakable, yet it is transparent as glass at less than half its weight.

PALSUN® can be cold bent and easily fabricated and formed, making it ideal for roofing, skylights, architectural roofing and glazing.

Clear, translucent and opaque PALSUN® sheets are also ideal as machine guards, sound barriers, anti-vandal and safety glazing. PALSUN® Diffuser and LB sheets are extensively used in light boxes.
