RF Pro-Tect PolyCB2 Information
PolyCB2 is the result of NASA research grants that have produced polycarbonate 100 times stronger than steel. Polycarbonate was first known to the public in products such as bullet-proof glass and shatter proof plastics. As the need for greater strength and flexibility increased, polycarbonate substrates have become increasingly stronger and versatile.
The ultra fine fibers that make up the polymer core of PolyCB2 are comprised of molecular chains intertwined in a spaghetti like fashion. These chains react very much like woven nylon rope. The greater the pull, the tighter the weave becomes.
When woven into a mesh, this unique molecular structure produces extreme ball burst and tensile strength. If a force with velocity is applied to it, the impact is gently absorbed by redistribution to the larger surrounding area. This flexibility and return-to-prior-state provides a nearly impenetrable surface.
By coating the extruded strands of fibers with a UV protection, the entire screen mesh is protected from molecular break-down or design changes caused by the high frequency ultra-violet sun rays. This protection inhibits aging and color fading. Biocides also incorporated in the coating provide immunity from mold and mildew.
The result is a screen mesh that is stronger, more durable and impervious to the elements. PolyCB2 Screen Mesh will not stretch out of shape after years of wear and will not become brittle. It potentially has an unlimited lifespan.
Special extrusion techniques and added chemical compounds to the protective coating permit PolyCB2 HD-60 and MX-90 Solar Screen mesh to filter out more UV rays without reducing air flow or visibility. The combination of high strength and advanced technology provides a new generation of lightweight, colorful, durable and flexible solar shade screen mesh for a multitude of applications.
