Polycarbonate is a thermoplastic polymer material that is naturally good at impact resistant and heat resistant as well. It is a very strong and tough material that constantly used as safety component. The usual protective goggle is usually made from polycarbonate material due to its strong impact resistant and also light in weight. Normally goggles that are made from glass can be as good as polycarbonate material but due to the lightweight and price of polycarbonate, it is always better alternative than glass. However, polycarbonate is not totally flawless and the impact resistance comes with a huge drawback which is its abrasion or scratch resistant. This can be commonly seen on plastic packaging like the polycarbonate bottle where the bottle itself will not break from dropping and melt from bubbling water. Although it is not having visible damage throughout the usage, the scratches are clearly visible and not easily polish like the glass. Although a layer of anti-scratch can be added on, troublesome for this maintenance might not be worth it. So by understanding the pro and cons of the polycarbonate it should let you know that polycarbonate that are used for decor or exterior purpose should be used on the application that lesser contact by people and should be placed on the place where it's less prone to scratch. If the overall look is not the main concern then polycarbonate glass and sheet are highly recommended. An alternative such as acrylic glass is also recommended but it would be easier to break than polycarbonate. To know more about possible polycarbonate products, you can inquire about our polycarbonate specialist Aathaworld to know more about the details and technical info.
Polycarbonate Roof Awning
Roof Awning by using polycarbonate is a popular choice among Malaysia. The main reason for it because of the natural corrosion-resistant and good sound insulation to ensure the water drop from the rain is kept to minimal. Polycarbonate awning is also a very fast installation because any calculation and design is predefine and will be sent to manufacture to produce the polycarbonate sheet that comes with the design and install accordingly. All the cutting and modeling will be done in the factory and the onsite installation will be able to finish in less than a day. There are many design choices for polycarbonate roof awning such as frost surface for better shading, clear surface for better lighting, and coloured surface to increase its attractive appearance. Since the roof awning is not easily scratched by sharp object the anti-scratch layer of the polycarbonate awning can be less maintenance. If you need some design idea of polycarbonate awaning please send your request to Aathaworld to get you some beautiful project reference.
Polycarbonate Alternative to Glass
Polycarbonate is famous for its impact resistance and can be similar or stronger than tempered glass. But why choose polycarbonate glass for your wall than a tempered glass? This is all due to the fact that polycarbonate is lighter in weight and customizable design. Tempered glass is heavy and hard to fit into a modern design that requires a lot of curve and edge. Tempered glass is less forgivable because once it produced it can no longer change or alter the shape. Polycarbonate would only require a special tool to cut and made to different sizes when necessary. Polycarbonate is also used on the balustrade and also wall partition. It works as good as glass but the lighter weight for faster installation work. Polycarbonate wall is less susceptible to heat transfer which is very ideal for interior and exterior to reduce the energy transfer from the wall. Polycarbonate is highly recommended for glass alternative so if you any replacement or new installation of glass you can always take the polycarbonate product from Aathaworld to provide it for you.

In addition to polycarbonate, Aathaworld is also supplying acrylic who can custom design, cut, fabricate, supply and install for a wide variety of usages.

Basic functions of acrylic can be customized into furniture, security barriers, LCD screens, acrylic nails, security barriers, paints, furniture, medical devices to lenses. It is also being widely applied for tanks, windows as well as enclosures around the exhibits.
As same as polycarbonate, we can fabricate most of the designs to our capabilities for the end users. Acrylic is produced by plastic that uses single or multiple derivatives of acrylic acid. Poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) is a usual form because of its extraordinary versatility, weatherability, strength, design-friendly and perspicuity. In comparison to polycarbonate, acrylic has higher chance to be cracked while polycarbonate is prone to scratches. However, polycarbonate is more expensive than acrylic and therefore some applications will opt to use acrylic than the polycarbonate. Acrylic is easier to form shape through reheating but will not affect it quality in the appealing outlook.
