Polycarbonate Awning

polycarbonate awning
  • Polycarbonates, commonly known by the trademarked name Lexan, are a particular group of thermoplastic polymers. They are easily worked, moulded, and thermoformed. Because of these properties, polycarbonates find many applications.
  • A plastic material with greater impact strength than acrylic. Examples of trade names for polycarbonate include Makrolon and Lexan.
  • A plastic roof covering for a conservatory roof which is supplied in clear opal and bronze.
  • A synthetic resin in which the polymer units are linked through carbonate groups, including many molding materials and films
  • A sheet of canvas or other material stretched on a frame and used to keep the sun or rain off a storefront, window, doorway, or deck
  • (awned) having awns i.e. bristlelike or hairlike appendages on the flowering parts of some cereals and grasses; "awned wheatgrass"
  • a canopy made of canvas to shelter people or things from rain or sun
  • An awning or overhang is a secondary covering attached to the exterior wall of a building. It is typically composed of canvas woven of acrylic, cotton or polyester yarn, or vinyl laminated to polyester fabric that is stretched tightly over a light structure of aluminium, iron or steel, possibly

Polycarbonate sheet combines high impact and temperature resistance with optical clarity and can be utilized for secondary glazing behind existing glazing for economical protection against breakage or intrusion. Polycarbonate sheet can be cut, sawn, drilled and milled by using standard workshop equipment without the risk of cracking and breakage and is therefore an excellent candidate for fabricating a wide range of indoor applications such as machine guards etc. Polycarbonate sheet can be easily thermoformed into complex parts while retaining its excellent properties necessary for demanding applications such as vandal proof street furniture. Polycarbonate sheet may be decorated using a wide variety of modern techniques such as painting and screen printing.

Unlike most thermoplastics, polycarbonate can undergo large plastic deformations without cracking or breaking. As a result, it can be processed and formed at room temperature using sheet metal techniques, such as forming bends on a brake. Even for sharp angle bends with a tight radius, no heating is generally necessary. This makes it valuable in prototyping applications where transparent or electrically non-conductive parts are needed, which cannot be made from sheet metal

Light transmission
Transparent Polycarbonate sheet have excellent light transmission, dependent of thickness between 84 - 87%.

Fire performance
Polycarbonate sheet has good fire behavior characteristics. Lexan sheet does not contribute significantly to the spread of fire or to the generation of toxic gases. For details please contact your local sales office.

Polycarbonate welded and tapped
Polycarbonate welded and tapped
A little experiment in polycarbonate welding and tapping. The welds were done with MEK (methyl ethyl ketone), a common plastic solvent sold in model shops for welding plastic kits. One weld is on the smooth faces of the plastic, and the other welds a smooth face to a roughly sawn face. The tapping is M6, with a 5mm hole drilled initially. They're all remarkably strong (well, I think so anyway) and will be fine for fixing the lid of the UK101 onto the machine. This is all in preparation for the 2009 Maker Faire UK in Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
