  • TUFFAK CA polycarbonate sheets are the only full range, solid polycarbonate products that meets the International Building Code (IBC) Class A flammability rating and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) “Standard Methods of Fire Tests for Evaluating Contribution of Wall and Ceiling Interior Finish to Room Fire Growth” requirement.

In addition, this sheet is ideal for wall cladding for added surface protection.
