Virtually unbreakable,Tuffak® 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® 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® polycarbonate sheet is light in weight, transmits 85% to 89% light in normal window thicknesses, and has good weatherability. UV-stabilized Tuffak® 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. Tuffak® polycarbonate sheets are offered in a variety of grades specifically designed for certain applications. Below is the various grades available, please feel free to click on any of the products below for more information on that particular product.

Types of Tuffak
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.
Tuffak® CM-2 is the designation for Tuffak® polycarbonate sheet with a durable, clear coating that significantly increases the abrasion resistance of Tuffak® sheet in typical exposures such as washing operations, airborne dust and dirt, and non-abusive public contact.
Tuffak Coated Optical Grade
Today’s luxury automobiles, limousines and armored trucks demand higher security glazing products. Tuffak® Coated Optical Grade polycarbonate sheet with one-sided abrasion-resistant coating, is designed for use in protective laminates.
Tuffak Coated Optical Grade
Tuffak® W polycarbonate sheet is the premium product in the market for construction of polycarbonate aircraft canopies.
Tuffak® XL polycarbonate sheet is produced via a proprietary process that creates a built-in UV barrier. As a result, sign makers using this sheet gain many advantages, including extended life of its impact properties, longer term yellowing resistance and higher light transmission over standard, general-purpose polycarbonate sheet.
Tuffak® R is made from recycled polycarbonate sheet and is significantly less expensive than standard Tuffak® sheets. Tuffak® R does contain tiny black specs throughout the material, due to it being recycled, but still makes for an ideal material in machine guarding and factory windows.
