Normally Types Polycarbonate Used in Machine guards

Excelite GP Polycarbonate Sheets

Excelite offers GP polycarbonate sheet for normal application for machine guards. The polycarbonate general purpose sheet provides high optical clarity, high impact resistance, making it an excellent choice for machine guards where protection shield against impact and blast is essential. When exposed to sunlight or UV radiation, we add UV coating to enhance its durability and long life.

Excelite Polycarbonate AR(abrasion resistant)Sheet

The surface of Excelite AR sheet is engineered to scratch resistant, which offers protection of scratching, chemical resistant, such as oils, cleaning fluids, paints and adhesives. It makes a practical choice for applications where protection against scratches and exposure to chemicals is essential. This durability and resistance to wear and tear contribute to easier maintenance and long-term reliability of the sheet in diverse settings.

Excelite Polycarbonate Laser sheet

The polycarbonate laser sheet is designed to offer advanced protection against laser hazards, serving as a dependable barrier to reduce the dangers linked to laser exposure. At Excelite, we prioritize safety measures for individuals working in laser environments by providing the best solutions for safeguarding against laser operations.

Excelite Polycarbonate FR(flame resistant) Sheet UL94 V0

When utilizing polycarbonate sheets for vehicle enclosures, ensuring flame resistance is a critical requirement to enhance safety and compliance standards. Excelite Flame-resistant polycarbonate sheets are engineered to withstand exposure to high temperatures and flames, reducing the risk of ignition and flame spread in the event of a fire.

Excelite Polycarbonate Tinted Sheet

We also meet some special colors requirement in polycarbonate machine guard defenses.

Why Polycarbonate Machine Guards?

Polycarbonate is a popular choice for machine guards due to its unique combination of properties that make it well-suited for various applications.

  • Precise Shaping Machinability: Polycarbonate is known for its close tolerance machinability, allowing for precise shaping and customization of machine guards to fit specific machine safeguard requirements.
  • Optical transparency: Optical transparency glass is crucial in machine guard applications where monitoring and observation of equipment. It is an essential for operational efficiency and safety.
  • High Impact Resistant: Polycarbonate is a highly durable material with exceptional impact resistant. Machine guards made from polycarbonate can withstand harsh industrial environments and provide reliable protection against accidental impacts or collisions, ensuring the equipment safeguard.
  • High Thermal Resistant: Polycarbonate exhibits high thermal resistance, making it suitable for applications where high temperatures are a concern. It maintains this impact resistance over a wide temperature range (-40°C to 120°C).
  • Flame Resistant: Polycarbonate machine guards help prevent the spread of flames and contribute to overall fire protection measures in industrial settings. We also can do UL94 V0 fire retardant sheet.
  • Chemical Resistance: Polycarbonate is also resistant to a wide range of chemicals, including oils, cleaning fluids, and solvents.
