is the result of NASA research grants that
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.
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.
