Polycarbonate Polycarbonate - a polymeric form of plastic that has a unique structure.Creating sheet material is extruded.Due to this, the product becomes thermoplastic, returns its properties during solidification.The number of cycles of melting at the same time does not matter.

Cons not so significant, but they are recommended to take into account:

  • Polycarbonate prone to scratches.It spoils the appearance of the structure.Plus, will actively accumulate dirt and wash them will be difficult in these scratches.
  • presence of a small deformation during temperature changes.Because in the construction of the booth should leave small gaps.
  • Fear of ultraviolet radiation.Although today the lack of virtually irrelevant, since vendors okleivayut panel protective films.Thus the destructive processes do not start.
