Practical Advice on Purchasing and Using Macrolux® Multiwall Polycarbonate Sheet:
Macrolux® is supplied with a protective PE film on both sides which should be kept on until work is completed. The U.V. protected side is to be faced TOWARDS THE SUN and is MARKED WITH A WHITE PRINTED FILM OR LIGHT BLUE FILM or a sticker saying Macrolux® Multiwall Polycarbonate Sheet.
Macrolux® crates or sheets should be stocked in an area not exposed to the sun or direct heat from the sun, which could make the removal of the protective plastic film difficult.
Thicknesses stocked are 6mm (1/4" nominal), 8mm (5/16" nominal), 10mm (.375" nominal), 16mm (.625" nominal). Also available 4mm, 4.5mm, 20mm, 25mm, 32mm with a very short lead time. Our biggest sellers are the 6mm and 10mm thickness.
Be sure to also order Macrolux® Polycarbonate Profiles such as End caps (seal off ends of the sheet), H-channel (to join sheets together), Right angle channel (joins sheets at a 90 angle), and Snap-H profile (join sheets together)
