RENOLIT vinyl glass sheets

A vinyl glass sheet with excellent transparency specified for high-tech window and visor applications, RENOLIT FLEXGLAS / RENOLIT KAL-GLAS is designed to meet the rigorous demands of long term outdoor use. The first choice for high-end plastic glass applications RENOLIT FLEXGLAS / RENOLIT KAL-GLAS meets OEM requirements that demand extreme high and low temperature resistance combined with a glass-clear, undistorted view.

Manufacturing process

RENOLIT FLEXGLAS / RENOLIT KAL-GLAS sheets are manufactured on a dedicated pressed products line. Vinyl film is first calendered and satinated before being cut into sheets and pressed at high temperature between two polished steel plates. This process both optimises the transparency of the sheet whilst removing the stresses and strains normally associated with calendered film. The result is a product with a clear glass finish that neither shrinks nor yellows in sunlight, nor cracks when it freezes. What is more, it is easy to process and can be welded, sewn or bonded to itself or other materials.

Whilst these products have been used for many years in the automobile industry as rear windows for convertible-top classic cars and on SUVs, they also find application as boat canopies and spray hoods, tent windows, blinds and awnings. RENOLIT also has a maxi-sheet RENOLIT SEA-FLEX version that is designed especially for the marine matkets. Sprayhoods and boat enclosures with RENOLIT SEA-FLEX provide excellence transparency, are rollable and easy to clean.
