3D Shaped Polycarbonate:
Ideal for race boat & race car windows

June 2020

Combining UV stability with superior impact resistance, polycarbonate sheet material is the ideal option for harsh environments where physical impacts are common—for example, race boat and race car windows.

Here at ALFAB, we take on a range of 3D shaped polycarbonate projects and we recommend polycarbonate to anyone who is seeking a durable, safe and lightweight alternative to glass.


Available in clear as well as a variety of colour options, UV polycarbonate is the perfect choice for architectural applications, particularly where extended service life and resistance to colour shift is needed. UV polycarbonate sheets provide enhanced UV-resistance, exceptional durability throughout changing weather conditions and high impact strength.

The sheets can be thermoformed, fabricated and decorated to suit your requirements. For your peace of mind, it is even backed by a 5-year limited warranty against breakage, excessive yellowing and loss of light transmission.

Polycarbonate provides competition race boats and race cars with a huge benefit in terms of weight reduction, safety and performance enhancement when compared to glass alternatives. Below are examples of polycarbonate applications used for a race car and race boat:










There are various other applications for polycarbonate where safety is paramount, such as within the industrial and architectural industries.

Some of these applications include:

  • Forestry machinery windows
  • Balcony guards
  • Security screen protection
  • Personal protection shields

Here at ALFAB, we regularly work with 3D shaped polycarbonate on a range of marine applications including race boat windows. If you’re interested in UV polycarbonate or would like to learn more, be sure to get in touch with the specialists at ALFAB today.
