In GI PLAST’s product range different types of material and finishes are available, here below the most requested:
POLYCARBONATE: a material with optimal transparency and high performances, being adaptable to the use in a very great working temperature range, and being of outstanding mechanical properties and high moldability.
Ideal for indoor and outdoor applications, thanks to LONGLIFEProtection, which prevents the profile to be affected either optically or mechanically by UV-Rays, granting its use and finish for 10 years.
An esthetic innovation with great success in the LONGLIFE technology is the MATT LED CONTROL, which ensures besides the protective characteristics, a homogenous diffusion of the Light: ideal performance, especially for LED-lamps, since Hot-Spots are made invisible..
