Polycarbonate Sheet for Welding Curtains
Plaskolite LLC, North America’s largest manufacturer of thermoplastic sheet products, introduced TUFFAK WC is designed for welding curtain and screen applications and offers the high temperature resistance and optical clarity and protection required for arc welding applications with a combination of impact strength, light weight and flexibility far superior to traditional alternatives such as vinyl strips and sheets. These characteristics also make the material well suited for other applications requiring UV light blocking, including screens in tanning salons and enclosures, walkways and other areas under intense sunlight.

It is available in four transparent colors with high optical clarity: light yellow, medium amber and red, and dark green. It is certified to AWS F2.3M:2011, for transparent welding curtains and screens for light transmission.

TUFFAK LS delivers similar benefits at targeted wavelengths specific to lasers, protecting the eyes and skin from accidental exposure in medical, dental, dermatological, CO2 cutting, and research applications. It is designed for use in door and room windows, as standing panels and movable screens, modular barriers, and tabletop laser enclosures. The material is available in three standard, transparent colors: IR blocking light gray, visible light blocking bright amber, and UV blocking yellow. All colors maintain high optical clarity and visibility. It is certified to ANSI Z136.7: Testing and Labeling of Laser Protective Equipment.

TUFFAK WC and LS are extensions of Plaskolite’s TUFFAK polycarbonate sheet line, which is used in safety shields, signage, face shields, mass transportation glazing, skylights, force entry and ballistic applications, as well as many other applications requiring a combination of strength and light weight.
