Due to a technological breakthrough, Polyglass Plastics can offer both SUNTUF
profiles and PALSUN flat polycarbonate sheets with integrated solar control These
sheets are designed to give the qualities of reflective glass plus the added benefits of
polycarbonate as a glazing material.
SUNTUF and PALSUN Solar Control Sheets have a considerable advantage over
regular coloured sheets. Standard coloured sheets absorb most of the light energy,
which is not transmitted through the sheets. This leads to the heating of the sheet
itself and to heat accumulation within the covered area. SUNTUF and PALSUN Solar
Control sheets transmit light and reflect solar radiation at the same time, resulting in
'cool' lighting conditions within the covered area. This is as a result of millions
of small flat 'mirror like' particles that are dispersed in the sheet which allow the
light rays to pass between the particles while the heat is reflected away. This
manufacturing process is a very complex and advanced science. Its mastery has been
as a result of state of the art technology known only to SUNTUF laboratory scientists.
