Redco™ Polycarbonate


The Crystal Clear Choice

Redco™ Polycarbonate is easily workable, molded, and thermoformed, making it a perfect choice for modern manufacturing. Thanks to its strong temperature resistance, impact resistance, and optical properties, Redco™ Polycarbonate is virtually indestructible, with strength that far exceeds traditional glass and acrylic.

Redco™ Polycarbonate is easily installable and perfect for a wide range of applications, including skylights, visors, swimming pools, greenhouses, windows, patio roofs, and more! Whatever your application, rest assured that Redco™ Polycarbonate will insulate and diffuse light with ease.

Redco™ Polycarbonate Features


At 1/4 the weight of greenhouse glass on a square-foot basis, Redco™ Polycarbonate reduces labor costs through simplified transportation and installation. Usable on both gable and quonset-style greenhouses, easy-to-install panels can be attached directly to the greenhouse frame using our recommended fastener methods.

Excellent UV Resistance

Manufactured with an integral layer that protects from the damaging effects of sunlight, Redco™ Polycarbonate will remain clear for many years with minimal deterioration. Light transmittance for clear Redco™ Polycarbonate sheet, the most important criterion for growers, remains at 90% even during accelerated Q.U.V. tests.

Reduced UV Transmission

Redco™ Polycarbonate sheet is grower friendly. Essentially opaque to ultraviolet light at wave lengths below 385 nanometers, Redco™ Polycarbonate sheet blocks out the harmful UV light while letting in high amounts of visible light.

High Visible Light Transmission

Redco™ Polycarbonate sheet provides an optimal growing environment by transmitting visible light as well as glass (90% as measured by ASTM standards).

High Impact Strength

With 20x the impact resistance of fiberglass and over 40x the impact resistance of glass, Redco™ Polycarbonate is incredibly effective at resisting hail, wind and vandalism.

Redco™ Polycarbonate sheet can withstand over 240 inch-pounds of impact, the equivalent of a 3/4″ hailstone falling at 96 miles per hour! From temperatures -40°F to 250°F, rest assured that Redco™ Polycarbonate sheet will maintain its strength no matter the situation.

Thermally Insulating

Redco™ Polycarbonate sheet’s thermal insulating properties provides a U value of 1.2 (fiberglass = 1.56).


Chemically Stable

While Redco™ Polycarbonate sheet is unharmed by many chemical substances, it is important to avoid contact with incompatible adhesives, paints or solvents. Chemicals to avoid include benzene, gasoline, acetone, and carbon tetrachloride. Only recommended cleaners should be used to clean Redco™ Polycarbonate sheet.

Low Flammability

Exhibiting superior flammability performance compared to typical fiber reinforced polyester (FRP and acrylic sheet materials, Redco™ Polycarbonate is an approved light-transmitting plastic as described by all three model building codes (ICBO, BOCA and SBCCI). These include ASTM D 635, D 1929 and D 2843.
