GLODEX POLYSTYRENE GLAZING SHEET

In addition to Acrylic and Polycarbonate sheet, other plastics can be used for glazing applications. The most common of these is Polystyrene (or Styrene) sheet, which has these advantages:

  • Cost - Styrene is generally much cheaper
  • Strength - it is stronger than normal float glass and less hazardous when broken
  • Clarity - like other plastic glazing sheet, Styrene is glass clear

although it has some disadvantages:

  • Strength - it is not as strong as Acrylic or Polycarbonate
  • Discolouration - because it is not UV stable, it will go cloudy over time, particularly in sunlight

These characteristics mean that Styrene is suitable for uses such as picture framing, splash backs, internal doors, showcases and display cabinets, plus it is commonly used for shed and greenhouse glazing. We do not recommend Styrene for use in any Secondary Glazing application, because of its poor performance in sunlight.

For a general comparison of plastic and glass glazing sheet, see the video on our Glazing page.

For a video that clearly illustrates the respective strengths and break points of Styrene, Acrylic and Polycarbonate, visit our Polycarbonate sheet page.
