    Q:Are these polycarbonate panels lined with a protective film to protect against scratches? The surface looks like it should be a film, but I can't lift anything away from the panel. How in the heck do I take it off?

      Q:If used as a window, will these panels provide broad-spectrum UV protection?
      by|Jan 11, 2022

      Answer This Question

      A:  Hi there, this product does not offer broad-spectrum UV protection, as it isn't meant to be used on exterior windows. I would suggest a UV stable Polycarbonate sheet, as they are meant to be glass substitutes.

        Q:Can this be used for green house panels?
        by|Apr 27, 2020
        2 Answers
        Answer This Question

        A:  I believe these poly sheets were designed for in ceiling lighting panels but are stiff enough to be used for green house panels. However, they are not truly clear (see photo) but a little translucent.

        by|May 1, 2020

        A:  That's what I used it for. You may have to run cross supports depending oh how you attached to greenhouse. It has some bend to it.

        Easiest light panels I've ever worked with. The extreme flexibility, lack of chipping and ability to to diffuse light without significant light loss, make these the best I've used to date, by far. We installed several LED light panels without light diffusers and added a number of new LED troffers with light diffuser panels since then, and wanted to try to minimize the obvious mismatch. While these don't totally match, they are close enough to work to keep people from detecting the style difference. From an installation perspective, they're the best I've ever used. They don't chip, break or crack using our usual go to tools. I did not have any success with a knife, but the use of a saber saw (both aggressive and fine blades) , a table saw with a fine finish blade and electric tin snips worked great. The easiest for me was the electric tin sips. My electric shears worked fair for a few inches, but the material was a bit thick for those, so the electric tin snips worked the best. Using any of those, I saw very limited plastic melting and all of them left a nice clean edge. The electric tin snips were the easiest to use on site without having special work site setups because the material is so flexible.. These are tough too. I've kneeled on them to mark them, bent them pretty hard and no sign of any issues or damage. Compared to the brittle and stiff plastic units of the past, these are heads and shoulders better. We are highly satisfied with these panels and highly recommend them. .

        Strong, flexible provides decent diffusion, but reduces total output and can be a bit tough to cut. I believe this product is made for drop ceiling lights to provide diffusion. My application was not standard, as I custom sized it for garage LED lights. Essentially this is a thin piece of plexiglas with an abraded face to enhance diffusion of light. The plastic is very flexible and tough. The instructions say you can cut it with snips, scissors, or utility knife. I tried using a knife but it was very slow going. I found the table saw the best option (with ATB blade) but you still have to be quite careful as it will easily catch the blade and crack. Once I had the technique down I was able to get smooth clean cuts. Once sized correctly I added it to a low cost LED fixture that lacked a diffuser. I found the product did improve light quality over a wider area but it does reduce light output of the fixture significantly (see comparison photo). About my rating: 5 stars – Exceeds all expectations. Better than the competition in all aspects, design, cost, operation, and support (A+). 4 stars – Nicely done. Better than the competition and solves the problem. (B) 3 stars – Works as expected. Has some shortcomings but gets the job done. Might be short in design, cost, longevity, or support. (C). 2 stars – Falls short of expectations and needs improvement. Pass and look elsewhere. (D) 1 star – Fails miserably. Does not get the job done, might even make things worse. Someone at the company should be fired. (F)

        I am making some costume lights for my house. I am using 12 volt self-adhesive LED tape in a wood base. I use a dato blade in the table saw to cut a channel for the LED strip, and then cut shallower side dato's for the lens to sit in. The len is them fritchen fit into the shallow dato. I first tried the score and snap method to get the with I needed, but that didn't work out so well for the thin piece. A band saw cuts nice, but a full sheet is a bit awkward to handle. For the next one, I am going to make a zero clearance insert for the table saw and try that.

        These clear polycarbonate lighting panels were easy to work with. They come in 2x4 feet panels, with five panels to the package. I was so pleased and amazed to see the panels were shipped to me and came in perfect condition. I usually get some cracks or missing corners, I usually buy the embossed panels, but these are translucent and leave a nice clean look

        These lenses do a fantastic job of softening and dispersing light over a larger area without compromising lumens. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the frost on the one side of the panels really help diffuse the light so it is even in intensity. They are extremely light weight and easy to cut to size. Being polycarbonate, they will also stand up to the occasional bump without fear of cracking and breaking into several pieces.

        24 in. x 48 in. x .060 in. Polycarbonate Lighting Panel (5 Pack). Very strong but can be cut easily with a power scroll saw and power sanded and drilled to fit your application. Not quite clear but has some translucent property (see photo number 3). UV stabilized and non-yellowing. Didn't use for large lighting panel but cut them up for small in-ground patio lights. I have about a dozen of these lights that need repair.

        Yeah. So, I used these clear poly-carbonate lighting panels as a counter top. It worked ok. Not great but also not bad. They are really clear and have a nice reflection on them. They were easy to cut and easy to handle. Problem is attaching them to a surface. I used clear poly glue that, even though was clear, still showed through this panel. I can recommend this as a great product for it's intended purpose. And you can see for yourself if it is an option for off-the-wall purposes.

        I am definitely not a fan of fluorescent lighting but until we can redo the kitchen I’m gonna have to live with it. The panels that we had were so thin and transparent that you could see right through them and they cracked very easily. Not a great look. I selected these panels because I thought the frosted look would help to disguise the fluorescent tubes so that they weren’t so apparent. These are perfect. It allows the light to shine through but you can’t actually see the bulbs. These are made of a much thicker plastic than what I had previously used. That being said, it is going to be difficult to cut should you need to trim them to fit. I found that using a plastic cutting tool actually helped. It does require a bit of muscle to score the peace but you will know that you are doing it right if you see little curls of plastic when making the cut. You have to score both sides, making between 5 to 7 passes per side. Then you just snap off the extra piece and you’re ready to go. The tool is available in most hardware stores for less than five dollars. You are also going to want to have a sturdy straight edge that you can cut along to be sure you get a straight cut. I originally tried using my Dremel tool but the speed of the tool actually started to melt the edge of the plastic. I do not recommend this method if you need to cut the pieces. Who would’ve thought something as simple as just replacing the fluorescent light panels would make such a difference. This look I can definitely live with.

        The Tufflens 24 inch by 48 inch clear poly carbonate lighting panel has many uses. I am using mine in my photography as a lighting diffuser . I made a frame to hold the panel in place and it has worked great. They have a smooth side and a rough side. The panels are easy to cut with either a circular saw aor a cutting knife. They come in a pack of 5 and are resistent to breaking.

        Got these panels for two uses. First to replace the broken panels on some lights in my family room. Panels were easy to trim to the proper size (score and snap) to make the right fit. The panels are "frosted" on one side so it diffuses the light better than the old panels. I also wanted to make a temporary sand blast cabinet to to clean up the rusted wheels on a car that I am restoring. These panels worked well to cover the open top on the cardboard cabinet, keeping the blast media contained in the box. The panels are quite flexible but very strong while being light weight, so worked well for both applications Would recommend to anyone with a project requiring a thin light weight panel that is very strong yet easy to cut to size.
