Are There Limitations Of Using Tinted Polycarbonate Sheet?

Tinted polycarbonate sheets are not scratch resistant and denting and scratching can happen if caution is not taken.

They are more prone to scratching compared to regular glass.

This is an issue that can be solved by polishing of the tinted polycarbonate sheet.

They can expand by about 0.065mm per degree Celsius. This should be considered during construction or processing.

Mounting holes should be wide enough to prevent bolts from sticking during expansion and any sealant used should be flexible.

High installation costs –polycarbonate sheets are more expensive compared to glass and acrylic.

Manufacturing process not environmentally friendly – There are chances of emissions, which could pollute the environment.

In the manufacturing process, phosgene, which is known for its side effects on both chlorine and human health

How Does Transparent And Tinted Polycarbonate Sheet Compare?

Transparent polycarbonate sheet is clear and has no color allowing visible light to pass through the polycarbonate sheet.

Since more light is allowed to pass through, it will be hotter under the sheet.

Tinted polycarbonate sheet provides a slight colour to polycarbonate sheet but the colour is not from paint.

The color is from dyes and pigments which could be added to the material at the factory or after market.

Tinting prevents visible light from passing through the polycarbonate sheet.

Less light passing through means it is less hot under the sheet compared to transparent polycarbonate sheet.

Is There Difference Between Tinted Polycarbonate Sheet And One With Photo Chromic Coating?

Photochromic coating occurs when photo chromic material is incorporated.

While processing the polycarbonate sheets and hence it will tint automatically on exposure to a certain threshold of ultra violet radiation.

They start out clear but turn dark on exposure to sunlight and will go back clear when no longer exposed to the sun.

The more ultra violet presence the darker the tint becomes and the less the ultra violet light present the lighter it becomes.

On the other hand, tinted polycarbonate sheet are permanently tinted dark and do not change color depending on exposure to sunlight.

Will Tinted Polycarbonate Sheet Yellow after Some Time?

Tinted polycarbonate sheet will discolor and turn yellowish after some time when exposed to sunlight.

Ultra violet resistant coating is used to prevent this from happening.

What Are The Available Thickness Of Tinted Polycarbonate Sheets?

Available thickness may depend on where it is bought. Some of the available thicknesses include 3mm, 4.5 mm, 5 mm, 6 mm, 8 mm and 9.5 mm.

Do Tinted Polycarbonate Sheet Block UV?

Tinted Polycarbonate sheet blocks almost the entire relevant UV spectrum, meaning both UVA and UVB.

The material absorbs UV radiation and does not allow it to be transmitted through.

Does Tinted Polycarbonate Sheet Reduce Light Transmission?

Tinted polycarbonate sheet reduces light transmission. It has a light transmission of 89%.

Which Features Should You Look For In Tinted Polycarbonate Sheet?

  • Extremely high strength and impact resistance
  • Lightweight
  • Highly flexible hence suitable for a number of applications
  • Easy to cut and form for a variety of uses
  • Simple to decorate, paint or screen print without pretreatment.

  • Suitability for use where safety and security are required

How Does Painted Polycarbonate Sheet Compare To Tinted Polycarbonate Sheet?

Paint Coated Polycarbonate Sheet

Painted Polycarbonate Sheet

Painted polycarbonate sheet is formed when a color pigment or paint applied to a polycarbonate sheet.

Paints compatible with polycarbonate should be used to avoid corroding or interfering with chemical and physical properties of polycarbonate sheet.

Back painting is normally done for the sheets.

Painted sheets allow less light to pass through and hence less heat under the sheet compared to tinted sheets.

Tinted polycarbonate sheet provides a slight colour to polycarbonate sheet.

The color used is usually mixed with white until the tint desired is achieved.

The dyes and pigments can be mixed with polycarbonate while processing at factory or aftermarket tinting can be done.

Tinted polycarbonate will allow more light to pass through than painted sheets and hence warmer under the sheets.

Tinted Polycarbonate Sheets Allows Light To Penetrate The Sheets Unlike The Painted One

Can You Cut Tinted Polycarbonate Sheet To Size?

Polycarbonate sheet can be cut to required size depending on intended use.

Items that can be used to cut polycarbonate sheet to size include circular saws, band saws, CNC router and fine toothed hacksaw.

Well, the process of sawing polycarbonate sheet is simple. This is what you should do:

  1. Wear safety gear and choose an appropriate cutting tool
  2. Clean the work bench and clamp the polycarbonate sheet.
  • Mark out the area you want to cut from the main sheet
  1. Begin cutting the polycarbonate sheets

Although this process is cost effective, at times, it is not suitable for some industrial setups. For this reason, you can opt for other polycarbonate cutting processes

CO2 laser cutting machine can also be used to cut polycarbonate sheets however they may appear burnt due to high temperatures.

Whenever you’re cutting polycarbonate sheet, there will be friction that can cause heat buildup.

Therefore, you should cool it using either air or water. Polycarbonate sheet will begin to soften at a temperature above 130°C.

Is Tinted Polycarbonate Sheet Impact Resistant?

They are high impact resistant making them nearly unbreakable. They have 250 times the impact strength of float glass and 30 times that of acrylic.

How Can You Test Quality of Tinted Polycarbonate Sheet?

Testing and analyzing various properties of polycarbonates is a sure way of choosing the right polycarbonate grade for a particular task.

During the manufacturing process, the mechanical, optical and thermal properties are tested. Some of the tests done include:

The Impact Analysis Test

It helps to determine the ability of a polycarbonate product to withstand a wide range of impacts or forces.

The test should assure that the material should remain unbreakable in all weather conditions.

Normally, the material to be analyzed is clamped and polyamide balls of varying diameters are fired towards the sheet using a pressurized gun.

This test is conducted based on the fact that, under normal conditions, a hailstone with a diameter of about 20mm may reach the surface with terminal velocity of about 21m/s.

Tensile Strength

This test is done to determine the extent to which a polycarbonate can resist breakage when subjected to tensile strength.

The ultimate tensile strength has to be determined.

The tensile elongation and the tensile modulus of elasticity are key factors which should be examined.

Thermal Properties Tests

They include thermal conductivity and specific heat, deflection temperature, melting point and the glass transition point.

The Light Transmission Tests

The degree of light transmission is important.

This can be modified depending on the use by modifying refraction and diffusion.

Can You Apply Other Coating On Tinted Polycarbonate Sheet?

To improve performance of polycarbonate sheet, you must add some coating depending on the applications.

Anti-fog coating – it is a hydrophilic substrate that eliminates fog through molecular interactions of water droplets.

Hydrophobic coating – with this coating, you will have a “self-cleaning” polycarbonate sheet or film.

It eliminates dust, moisture or water droplets on the polycarbonate surface.

Anti-scratch coating – this is a silicon based coating that forms a hard coat to prevent possible scratches on polycarbonate sheet.

Anti-reflective coating – this technology eliminates glare and excess light that can cause temporary blindness.

It is made of a thin dielectric that reduces reflection and glare.

UV protection coating – well polycarbonate sheet is not inherently resistant to ultra violet radiation. To protect your polycarbonate sheets, you need an anti-UV coating.

Anti Scratch Coating Protects The Surface Of A Tinted Polycarbonate Sheet

How Should You Clear Tinted Polycarbonate Sheet?

It is done using warm water with a few drops of liquid detergent and a microfiber cloth.

Using an antistatic cleaner will prevent a static charge which attracts dust from building up.

The cloth should be rinsed regularly in water. Machine polishing can also be done.

How Does Tinted Acrylic Sheet Compare To Tinted Polycarbonate Sheet

Strength – tinted polycarbonate sheet is stronger than acrylic sheet. Both are lighter and stronger than untempered glass.

Impact resistance – Tinted polycarbonate sheet is more impact resistant but easier to scratch compared to acrylic sheet.

Cleaning – Both are easily cleaned with regular soap and water.

But acrylic is less resistant to harsher chemicals than polycarbonate is, and should not ever be cleaned with glass cleaners or ammonia-based sprays.

Polycarbonate can withstand the rigours of these types of cleaners and is therefore less likely to be damaged while being maintained.

But once damage has been inflicted it is not easily fixed. Acrylic however can recover from minor damages, such as light scratches at next to no expense and even less difficulty.

Cost – acrylic sheet is cheaper than tinted polycarbonate sheet.

Light transmission – polycarbonate sheet has 89% light transmission whereas acrylic sheet has 92%

Transparency – acrylic is marginally clearer but the gap while negligible can widen if tinted polycarbonate is allowed to yellow.

Both will lose visual clarity over time but acrylic can be polished to restore clarity while polycarbonate clarity cannot be regained via polishing.

Workability – When it come cutting sheets of acrylic and polycarbonate, acrylic is more manageable.

It can be cut with greater ease and noticeably less resistance, especially when using electrical tools.

Drilling on the other hand is where polycarbonate come into its own, as it can be safely drilled anywhere on the sheet with a standard bit and 99% of the time suffer no damage.

Acrylic will withstand drilling but becomes more and more likely to break the closer you drill to the corners.

Can You Machine Tinted Polycarbonate Sheet?

Yes.  Machining tinted polycarbonate sheets may involve cutting, drilling and milling.

Tinted polycarbonate sheet can be cut to size using a circular saw and CNC router. A fine toothed hacksaw is recommended for small jobs.

Ensure the material is fixed securely and use light controlled pressure to achieve a good finish. Polycarbonate is not suitable for laser cutting.

Standard wood working drill bits are suitable for drilling holes in polycarbonate sheet.

Be sure to use another piece of material (scrap wood or acrylic is perfect) underneath the panel to act as a backstop.

This will ensure the drilling will not blowout the panel as the drill exits the material.

Center punch should not be used on polycarbonate as it will likely cause damage.

Be patient and drill at a steady speed and pause regularly to remove any swarf collecting around the drill, not doing so is likely to cause overheating and in turn will damage the hole.

When approaching the other side of the panel, continue to drill through it and into the backstop to ensure the exit hole does not splinter

In milling polycarbonate sheet you will use a rotary cutter to remove particles from a work piece.

How Much Does Tinted Polycarbonate Sheet Cost?

The cost of tinted polycarbonate sheet depends on a number of factors such as thickness, dimensions, customizations such as coatings and the brand type.

They can cost as little as 1$ per square meter to as much as 100$ per square meter.
