Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Polycarbonate plastics, or PC plastics, are a type of clear thermoplastic widely used for their transparency and versatility. They’re employed in various products requiring impact resistance and transparency, like bullet-proof glass and plastic lenses. Polycarbonate is heat-resistant and can be combined with flame retardants without significant degradation. It’s commonly used in automotive parts, protective gear, CDs, DVDs, and outdoor lighting fixtures. Polycarbonate is favored for its flexibility, akin to aluminum sheet metal, making it suitable for applications where sheet metal isn’t viable. Overall, it’s a versatile material ideal for numerous applications due to its transparency, impact resistance, and flexibility.

Polycarbonates are a group of thermoplastic polymers. Their strength and toughness allow them to be used as either commodity or engineering plastics. They have a superior service temperature range, impact resistance, and optical quality. It’s exceptionally durable and lightweight, a great alternative to glass for windows. With sheets 250 times stronger than glass, it ensures security and longevity. Polycarbonate panels are virtually unbreakable, making them safer than glass. The panels are lightweight, allowing for convenient and easy assembly, or even re-location of products. In addition, polycarbonate panels protect what it covers from harmful UV rays, and, as a recyclable thermoplastic, it promotes sustainable practices.

Polycarbonate awnings offer durability, lightweight construction, UV protection, easy maintenance, and impact resistance. They withstand harsh weather, are easy to install, shield from UV rays, require minimal maintenance, and resist impacts, making them a reliable outdoor shading solution.

Cleaning is typically not required for polycarbonate awnings as they are self-cleaned by rain.
However, it’s important to perform regular inspections to ensure there’s no dirt buildup. This proactive approach helps maintain the awning’s appearance and ensures it remains in optimal condition for the long term.
If cleaning of the polycarbonate awning is deemed necessary due to accumulated dirt or debris, it’s important to use gentle cleaning methods to avoid damaging the material.
Start by rinsing the awning with water to remove loose dirt, then gently scrub the surface with a mild soap solution and a soft brush or sponge.
Rinse thoroughly with clean water afterward to remove any soap residue. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials that could scratch or degrade the polycarbonate surface.
