Bei IMPEX® HC are UV-protected polycarbonate sheets with a one- or both sides abrasion resistant coating and a good impact resistance, which makes them especially suitable for flat indoor and outdoor applications. Thanks to this special hard coating, the sheets are less sensitive against scratches and have a high resistance to many chemicals and solvents.

IMPEX® HC is used for applications such as machine glazing or partition walls – wherever an enhanced abrasion- and chemical resistance is required.

In terms of processing, IMPEX® HC can be used mostly in the same way as IMPEX® in its standard version. Due to the special surface coating, however, IMPEX® HC is not suitable for hot and cold bending.

Recycled content

We are already recovering and reusing our own production waste to create new material in the manufacture of IMPEX ® sheets, and we aim to continue increasing the proportion of recycled regrind content in the future.

All raw materials used in our IMPEX® sheets comply with the requirements in the current version of the European Union's Chemicals Regulation (REACH). In particular, IMPEX® sheets are free of any of the substances listed in the current version of the ECHA Candidate List of Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC).

Product life cycle

Our IMPEX® sheets are made of polycarbonate, a durable thermoplastic material, which has excellent optical and mechanical properties. Polycarbonate sheets are extremely impact resistant and are virtually unbreakable under normal conditions of use. In addition, the sheets have an excellent resistance to weathering; even at very low or very high temperatures (-40°C to +135°C) they are extremely hard-wearing and resilient. These qualities make IMPEX® sheets ideal for long-term applications both indoors and (in the version featuring UV protection) outdoors.

Recyclability

IMPEX® sheets can be sorted for recycling and reuse. As a thermoplastic, polycarbonate in its pure form is ideal for mechanical recycling.
