Suitable for light commercial
Webglass Plus is manufactured in
Webglass Plus incorporates vinyl ester resins which offers better resistance to Hydrocarbons or high levels of acid or alkalines than standard Webglass. Webglass Plus carries a 20 year surface erosion warranty.
The useful life of Natural Lighting products is determined by their ongoing ability to allow sufficient light into the building. The following table gives a guide for the recommended use and the expected useful life based on light transmission. The long-term performance of Durolite products is enhanced by the use of a 100-micron integral gel coat surface rather than a laminated polyester film (Maxilite).
||Expected Useful Life as Skylighting
||Best for long term light transmission in industrial / commercial buildings, but extra heavy woven glass matt allows the product to be used without safety mesh. Resin uses a vinyl esta with excellent chemical resistance
Sheet Characteristics at End of Useful Life
||Surface Coating Condition
||Glass Fibre Appearance
||Minimal surface degradation, gloss retained
||Minimal pattern apparent
||Will remain an effective barrier to the weather for periods well in excess of their useful light transmission
||Sheet thickness of 1.4mm or more will not fracture from 20mm diameter hail impact in winds up to 100km/hr
||Best surface & sheet resistance to some hydrocarbons (e.g. toluene, petrol, mineral oils) & salt solutions
