Have you heard about LEXAN clear burglar bars? Is this your first time hearing about LEXAN? If this is the first time you are hearing about it or you would just like more insight, then you are in the right place. In this blog, we will explain to you exactly what LEXAN is and why we use it in our manufacturing process.

What is LEXAN?

First of all, Lexan is a brand name and not the name of the material itself. Lexan is a polycarbonate resin thermoplastic. This means it’s a solid substance that can be reformed in extreme heat, typically 147 degrees Celsius. Its molecules are comprised of repeating subunits. Lexan has the ability to receive high impact without breaking or cracking.

Did you know? The Lexan polycarbonate sheet has an impact strength 250 times greater than that of glass and 30 times greater than that of acrylic. 

Why do we use it?

ViewProtect is all about high-quality polycarbonate products. That is why we only use the best and strongest materials in our manufacturing process, LEXAN polycarbonate. The strength and durability of this material, therefore, make it an excellent choice for clear burglar bars, doors, gates and our brand new COVID-19 products. We have tried and tested various polycarbonate products and came to the conclusion that LEXAN is the best polycarbonate for our types of products.

Benefits of LEXAN products:

  • High level of impact resistance
  • Can withstand high temperatures of up to 147ºC before deforming
  • Highly resistant to acids and other chemicals
  • Low level of flammability
  • UV resistant
  • Aesthetically pleasing
