Polycarbonate is a type of semi-hard plastic that is superior to glass and offered in clear or white. Acrylic is 10x stronger than glass against breakage, but Polycarbonate is 25x Stronger than acrylic and Shatter-proof! Polycarbonate has a semi-glossy surface providing superior ink adhesion vs. acrylic. Polycarbonate also has exceptional flexibility and moldability by comparison.

 

Due to the flexibility of Polycarbonate, it is not suitable for freestanding displays. Still, it is perfect for wall mounting with standoffs or hanging. Cutting is no problem with Polycarbonate, and we offer CNC Router finishing services. Polycarbonate has superior light illumination and aversion to damage vs. acrylic due to its porous surface. Incredible durability both indoors and out, polycarbonate is the premier sign panel choice. 

 

As with all good things, Polycarbonate has a few downsides. Most notably, its low resistance to abrasion and marring. Another unfortunate inferiority is that it tends to yellow over long term exposure to UV. Fortunately, the Polycarbonate we source has a UV resistant coating on one side to mitigate the yellowing. 

 

While not the most economical option, Polycarbonate is considered one of the most durable. Polycarbonate should be at the top of your list if long term durability and lasting quality are essential.
