1. Why we decide to create the “SoftLite” ?
As we design the “SOFTLITE”, we’ve plus the Corrugated PC Sheet structure on it and it could be applied to reduce the heat penetration .Its intensity is between PC Solid sheet & Embossed sheet with sunshade effect. So the strengths for the “SOFTLITE” listed as following:
A. With the strength of Corrugated PC sheet structure : The SOFTLITE is thin & strong that’s because we use the same structure as Corrugated PC sheet but without the weakness of Corrugated PC Sheet. Then we did ignore the real function of PC flat sheet which will be tougher when it is thin.
For example :The regular PC corrugated sheet(5 grooves) is made for the natural lighting of steel-construction factory use .The thickness design for 0.8mm~1.0m/m is using popularly and to instead of the traditional FRP sheet.
B. The applications of Emboss sheet is for: The surface and appearance of Regular PC flat sheet only could be produced like the transparency of regular glass or only could be produced by embossed design . Each of these two different sheet just could be designed and produced individually which could not be put on the single sheet at the same time.
The characteristic of glass is transparency but it will lighting much through to transmit heat to much, the temperature in interior of the house is often over the load of human could stand.
Otherwise, the strength of the emboss sheet are refraction and reduce the heat-transmission but at the same it will reduce the light into indoor. It will make the vision of darkness especially in the morning, nightfall & cloudy day.
Therefore, the SOFTLITE has the strength of glass & emboss sheet and with well-lighting & less-heating concurrently. “ Only tender vision, no heating” is what we emphasize always.
You can understand the light’s different transmission on the SOFTLITE more clear as following diagram: The conclusion that this is the best PC lighting sheet for the strength well-rigidity, well-lighting & competition price.
2. You don’t have to change the way of construction as before:
The design of the regular corrugated sheet and Arc-corrugated sheet although with the well-rigidity even can be collocated into steel-construction factory for lighting. But the defect is can’t be settled on curve-bone frame, especially on “ㄇ” type construction frame because it easy to make the surface twist with force even broken.
The SOFTLITE has the same design of the surface with regular corrugated sheet but without the defect of regular corrugated sheet on installing. Therefore it can adopt the same install way and no extra train for installing.

4.SOFTLITE PC Sheet Design & Features
To improve both the PC flat sheet & PC embossed sheet
Avoid the impact of direct sunshine. Utilization of the photo
spectrum will let the sunshine become declining and the light become
Reducing the thermo conductivity from regular PCclear sheet ;
Improving the luminous conductivity from regular PC embossed sheet
The interval fine embossed surface, decline diaphanous surface
band structural and highly rigid structure design help to improve
above disadvantages to avoid the directly sunshine and make the
declining light tender.
The plates of the upper and lower peak are built in reverse direction
and with low static electricity, fine embossed design.
The material could keep away the pollution in a very long term
and very easily to be cleaned up by the rain.
In considering of the requirements of the exterior PC sheet ,
the light is the only favor instead of the heat.
When the strongest sunshine hit the embossed surface of SOFTLITE
, around 50% of light would be reflected. In this way the interior
would be with enough luminous but less heat.
The fine-grain design keeps away the sticking of dusts on the
The flat transparent design on the decline part.
When the sun shines on the sheet in declination, 40% of the light
is allowed to go through the flat transparent surface band into
the interior of the room.
The flat transparent surface gives the light effects of the primary
and secondary reflections.
The highly rigid structure has increased the strength much more
than increasing the thickness of the flat sheet.
The highly rigid structure has replaced the way by increasing
the thickness of the sheet for a better strength.
