Polygal polycarbonate multi-wall sheets are comprised of two (2) to eleven (11) parallel walls and multiple vertical walls creating what is known as “flutes”. Other terms used are “ribs” & “cells”. Polygal polycarbonate sheets are a homogeneously extruded sheet which means the sheet is not put together with glues and or adhesives.

Polygal sheets are made from polycarbonate resin. Polycarbonate is inherently stronger than glass and acrylic and can handle large deflections/deformations without breaking or cracking.
Because our sheets have multiple walls, they offer exceptional U & R values when comparing to other light transmitting materials. Our R-Values range from R1.4 – R5.6 depending on the gauge.

  • i. 6mm: Clear, Bronze, Ice, Freeze Clear (Hammered)
  • ii. 8mm: Clear, Bronze, Ice, Polymatte (Diffused), Polycoolite (Reflective Green)
  • iii. 10mm: Clear, Bronze, Ice, Red, Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange
  • iv. 16mm: Clear, Bronze, Ice

 

b. Polygal Titan Sky

 

  • i. 16mm: Clear, Ice, Primalite (Opalescent)

 

c. Polygal Selectogal (RFX)

 

  • i. 16mm: Clear, Non-Glare Bi-Color (Clear/Ice), Red, Blue

 

d. Polygal Topgal

 

  • i. 20mm: Clear, Bronze, Ice, Blue, Polyshade Silver

 

e. Polygal Thermogal

 

  • i. 32mm Thermogal Super: Clear, Ice

 

MOQ (Minimum Order Qty) for special colors would be 10 metric tons (22K Lbs). This is the standard rule of thumb however there are times when these special colors are already in production therefore we can piggy-back for a MOQ of 1 metric ton (2.2K Lbs). Please check with our CSR department for more information.
a. Polygal MWPC sheets are available in widths of 47.25”, 48”, 71.25” & 72”.
b. Polygal MWPC sheets are available in lengths of 288” or 432”
c. *Please check with our CSR Department for a more accurate in-stock answer*
a. Polygal can cut both the width and length at a tolerance of +/- .125” but we will charge for the full width and the length to the nearest foot.
b. Special order widths are subject to MOQ’s and can be verified at the time of inquiry. Please contact our CSR Department for more information.
Polygal Sheets have a 10 year non-prorated warranty against yellowing and breakage due to hail.

Polygal Sheet have a 10 year non-prorated warranty on anti-fog coating when applied.

Most other manufacturers of multi-wall sheet provided a 10 year limited warranty. Their warranty is prorated years 6 – 10.

Polycarbonate sheets are considered a Combustible material but are self-extinguishing when the source of the flame has been removed. They have received a Class A fire rating per ASTM E84.
a. Store Polygal MWPC Sheets in a dry, well ventilated area with no exposure to sunlight, wind, dirt or hard objects to prevent damage
b. Store on a flat clean raised surface
c. If outdoors, cover sheets with an opaque material (non-light transmitting product)
d. Do not store sheets under flexible PVC coverings
a. Wipe sheets with a clean, damp rag or chamois. The use of an anti-static solution like Novus 1 will also clean polycarbonate sheets and helps with resisting fog, dust and the elimination of static.

b. Do not use sponges, squeegees, brushes or sharp instruments as they may damage the UV protective coating.

Polygal Sheets can be cut and drilled using standard wood working tools.

  • Cutting – standard circular, jig, or table saw with a blade having 8-12 teeth per inch. Thinner gauges can be cut with a box knife.
  • Drilling – standard wood drill bits. Trimming – standard box cutting knife.

Self Extinguishing – when flame source is removed.
Emit – carbon monoxide & carbon dioxide gas when burning (the same as red oak in a fire place).

Polygal Sheets are usually cold formed, and MUST be thermoformed if a radii less than the minimum radii for cold forming is desired. When cold forming Polygal Sheets, the sheets are always bent along the length (direction of flutes) and the length must be greater than sheet width. The minimum cold form radii are shown below.

  • 4.5mm (3/16”) – 2’ 4” (0.71m)
  • 6mm (1/4”) – 3’ 5” (1.05m)
  • 8mm (5/16”) – 4’ 7” (1.40m)
  • 10mm (3/8”) – 5’ 9” (1.75m)
  • 16mm (5/8”) – 9’ 2” (2.79m)
  • 16mmTC – 13’ 0” (3.96m) Triple Clip System
  • 25mm (1”) – 14’ 9” (4.50m)
Don’t walk on sheets, especially when installed.
Do seal sheet ends with solid and vented tape; always – it is a must do.
Don’t store sheets in direct sun light.
Do call for technical assistance – 800-537-0095.
Don’t expose Polygal Sheet to solvents or other chemicals.
Do pre drill & pre cut sheets prior to installation, & blow out sheet flutes with high pressure air prior to taping.
Don’t use any PVC based material below duromator 80 as PVC will attack polycarbonate.
  1. Field verify all dimensions and make sure all panels are trimmed and or cut to size.
  2. Make sure all flutes are clear of dust or debris. The use of high pressure air or shop vac can help with this step.
  3. Tape the exposed ends with our breathable filter tape which prevents further dust, dirt or debris from entering the inside of the sheets.
  4. Remove plain bottom masking from the bottom of the panels and wipe down with an anti-static solution (Novus is an approved provider).
  5. Install profiles and sheets.
  6. Remove printed masking from the top of the panels immediately after install. Wipe down top surface with an anti-static solution.
Exterior Applications – flutes must always run vertical or parallel with the slope. This allows any condensation build up, caused by different surface temperatures on the interior and exterior surfaces, to drain (weep) out of the flutes of the sheet.

Interior Applications – flute direction is not an issue since the sheet surfaces are almost always the same temperature, and condensation should not be an issue.

  1. Any silicone used must be 100% silicone and cannot contain a PVC base.
  2. GE Ultrapruf II SCS2902 or DOW 795
  3. Always check with the silicone manufacturer/supplier to insure their product is compatible with polycarbonate sheets.
  1. Urlane #5774 & Urlane #5776
  2. Weld-On 55
  3. GE RTV108 & Construction 1200
  4. Attach sheets mechanically
  5. Always check with the supplier of these adhesives to insure compatibility with polycarbonate sheets.
  1. Any paint used must be compatible with polycarbonate and free of solvents which will attack the sheet.
  2. It is highly recommended to check with the supplier of the paint to insure that not only is the paint compatible with polycarbonate but also to verify the nature of the application is conducive with the type of paint being used.
Polygal will NOT accept material for return that has been cut to special sizes or is NOT in saleable condition. Please contact our CSR department for more information regarding our RMA policies.
