PALTUF and PALSUN sheets are as transparent as glass, but 200 times stronger while weighing 50% less. PALTUF and PALSUN sheets are ideal in areas exposed to vandalism or high impact. They provide the answer to virtually every covering and glazing application for both designers and contractors. Furthermore, the acoustical and thermal insulation properties of PALTUF and PALSUN as well as their light weight and flexibility enable reduced design and construction costs. PALTUF and PALSUN withstand temperatures under which many other plastics either melt or fracture easily. PALSUN and PALSUN PLUS retain their optical and mechanical properties in the most severe of external environments.
  
  


  
  Impact Resistance - practically unbreakable
  Transparent - 90% light transmission, the same as for glass with the same appearance (tinted, embossed, diffusive sheets transmit less light)
Weather Resistant - PALSUN Sheets retain their characteristics for years under all conditions. PALTUF Sheets are just as resistant when not exposed to sunlight.
Acoustical Insulation - PALTUF/PALSUN Sheets provide excellent acoustical insulation.
Light Weight - less than half the weight of glass and 43% that of aluminium.
Easy to Mount - PALTUF/PALSUN Sheets are easy to work with and install.
  Flexible, Formable, Machinable - PALTUF/PALSUN Sheets can be bent either hot or cold, can be thermoformed into an unlimited array of shapes, and can readily be machined and/or fabricated.
