14679tinting polycarbonate (was: window thickness)
- Oct 3, 2001Research would seam to indicate that polycarbonate aka Lexan is 2-6
times as strong as plywood.
So, if I use 1/4" thickness polycarbonate with the 1/2" ply
pilothouse on the CLC, I should have a nice strong structure without
having to go to extraordinary lengths to to strengthen the ply
structure to hold non loadbearing windows.
One question answered.
Now, can I buy clear polycarbonate and use the auto window tinting
film on it before assembly, to get exactly the shade of tint I want
on the windows?
I'm pretty sure it's a water based glue they use.
