Polycast UV-SC Solar Control is a revolutionary new glazing material developed by Spartech for the Marine industry and distributed exclusively by Total Plastics, Inc. This material, used for windows, hatches and doors of marine vessels, reduces the rise in cabin temperatures by as much as 50% when compared to other common marine glazing material. This results in lower interior temperatures by as much as 20˚F, depending on conditions.
Polycast performed and recorded tests comparing Polycast UV-SC Solar Control to standard marine glazing material, in this case glass. The time lapse videos below demonstrates how Solar Control (video on the right) effectively blocks heat absorption. Over the course of 1 hour with direct exposure to a heat lamp the temperature in the “room” enclosed by glass rose to 135˚F. Under the exact same test conditions, the temperature for the Polycast UV-SC Solar Control environment was 25˚ cooler.
