LEXAN™ GLASS SUBSTITUTE

WHAT IS LEXAN™ glass?

LEXAN™ is an amorphous thermoplastic transparent polymer. It has outstanding physical properties and is used extensively for engineering and optical applications. LEXAN™ is often used in the market as a synonym for polycarbonate and guarantees the best quality. LEXAN™ glass is a crystal clear, virtually unbreakable material and one of the most valued and widely-used glass substitutes globally.

LEXAN™ glass films and sheets 

LEXAN™ glass is used for different film and sheet products. LEXAN™ sheets and films are based on high-performance LEXAN™ resins and distinguish themselves from other plastics by their optical purity and very high impact resistance. LEXAN™ glass is 250 times stronger than other glass of the same thickness. LEXAN™ films and sheets can also, unlike most plastics, withstand high temperatures. It’s a unique material that is very lightweight, making it easy to work with.

LEXAN™ glass serves as an essential material for creating countless modern products. Our LEXAN™ portfolio is backed by advanced technical support and application development services worldwide to meet our customers' needs. SABIC offers versatile polycarbonate materials under the LEXAN™ glass films and sheets portfolio for various industries.

LEXAN™ glass building systems

LEXAN™ building systems provide creative glazing solutions for commercial and residential roofing and facades. They are characterised by lightweight and high impact UV and weather resistance. Along with excellent thermal insulation properties, each product is designed to provide easy and fast on-site installation and maintenance. Because of its heavyweight and brittle nature, glass has limited design versatility. In contrast, LEXAN™ glass helps increase design freedom. LEXAN™ glass building systems for roofs and façades are available in various colours, textures and special effects to meet your aesthetic requirements.

These products enhance building aesthetics while offering energy savings through high insulative performance and excellent natural light diffusion. This makes them a perfect choice for attractive and highly functional buildings. From commercial greenhouses to industrial facilities, sports stadiums, private homes and office buildings, LEXAN™ glass building systems offer innovative glazing solutions for residential, industrial and commercial applications.
