PC UV AdLight

PC – Polycarbonate (optical grade)

PC UV AdLight

PC UV AdLight or Exolon® UV AdLight is a plastic diffuser sheet for backlit advertising boards that combines excellent light-diffusing properties with a high level of translucency. The polycarbonate material is available as plastic sheet with one matt and one glossy side, which have excellent weather-resistance properties so the polycarbonate sheet can be installed with either side facing out. When illuminated, the PC sheet is clear and it offers even light distribution.
