Virtually unbreakable,Tuffak® A sheet is 300-times stronger than single-strength glass, and significantly tougher than other transparent sheet materials of equal thickness. It’s unlikely that Tuffak® A sheet will break, shatter or chip when bombarded with thrown missiles such as rocks, bricks or bottles. Nor is it likely that this material will break when hammered, twisted or bent. At the same time, Tuffak® A polycarbonate sheet is light in weight, transmits 85% to 89% light in normal window thicknesses, and has good weatherability . UV-stabilized Tuffak® A sheet has good resistance to solar exposure for five to seven years in moderate climate. Such exposure over a wide temperature range does not affect its impact strength.
