Polycarbonate board UV protection

- May 22, 2019-

  Polycarbonate board is abbreviated as PC board. It is made of polycarbonate polymer, advanced formula and the latest extrusion technology. PC board is a new type of high-strength, light-transmitting building material, which is the best building material to replace glass and plexiglass. PC board is more popular than laminated glass, tempered glass, insulating glass, etc. It is a popular building decoration material because of its light weight, weather resistance, super strength, flame retardant and sound insulation.

  Generally, there are two kinds of resins purchased by the sheet production factory, one is a common PC resin, and the other is a PC resin containing an anti-UV additive. The selected UV-resistant additives are as large as the following:

  (1) Salicylates such as p-tert-butylphenyl salicylate (TBS).

  (2) benzophenones such as 2-hydroxy-4-methoxybenzophenone (UV-9); 2-hydroxy-4-methoxy-2'-carboxybenzophenone (UV- 207); 2-hydroxy-4-n-octyloxybenzophenone (UV-531).

  (3) benzotriazoles such as 2-(2'-hydroxy)-3,7,5'-di-tert-butylphenylbenzotriazole (UV-320); 2-(2'-hydroxy-5 '-tert-octylphenyl)benzotriazole (uV-5411) and the like. The PC board is prone to internal stresses, and the presence or absence of internal stress on the sheet can be checked by carbon tetrachloride immersion and polarized light. The internal stresses present in the sheet can be eliminated by annealing.
