Reducing costs by reducing energy consumption is one of the top priorities of modern building construction. Saudi Basic Industries’ highly insulating LEXAN™ polycarbonate sheet products use a variety of ways to improve energy efficiency. When insulation is an important consideration, LEXAN THERMOCLEAR™ panels with hollow construction offer a significant advantage. Hollow panels provide excellent insulation to prevent heat loss in the winter; and in the In the hot summer months, the use of special infrared-barrier hollow sheet products can significantly reduce heat build-up.
What peoples say about us
Whatever name it goes by, Lexan is a polycarbonate resin thermoplastic. It has a variety of applications and is notable for his superior impact resistance. Lexan is often used, like acrylic, in situations that call for more durable versions of “glass-like” surfaces.
Even compared to a similar product, acrylic, Lexan wins out based on its high strength. Lexan is actually 200 times stronger than untempered glass, while acrylic is only up to 8 times stronger.
Although acrylic is less costly, it is typically shinier than Lexan and has a higher chance of cracking. However, Lexan does scratch more easily than acrylic despite being more impact-resistant.
