MONOGAL

High quality extruded polycarbonate sheets


Monogal (Plazcarb) Polycarbonate extruded sheet is a very durable sheet that has high impact resistance. Monogal is stronger, usable in a higher temperature range and has better light transmission than many kinds of glass. Half the weight of glass and virtually unbreakable, Monogal sheets meet the stringent demand of applications such as heavy machinery, automotive, safety and construction, skylights and flat or curved glazing for architectural applications. A special co-extruded layer is provided on one or both sides for enhanced long term weather resistance.
