Technically advanced surfaces for lasting protection and enduring clarity

PALGARD offers all the same performance features of our PALSUN polycarbonate—including high impact resistance and excellent UV protection—plus an advanced surface coating that delivers superior abrasion and chemical resistance.  PALGARD excels in resisting vandalism, graffiti spraying, and physical attack. It’s also resilient to a wider variety of chemicals and the increased wear and tear of high traffic areas.
PALGARD is a forced entry grade product, tested to the most stringent industry standards. Specifically, the 3/8” product meets the ASTM F1915-05 level 4 requirements, while the ½” sheet exceeded the minimum requirements for ASTM F1915-05 level 3 standards. PALGARD can also be glass-laminated for ballistic or transportation applications.
