What is the difference between polycarbonate and fibreglass sheeting?

Fibreglass (Also called glass-reinforced plastic , GRP) sheeting is produced using glass fibers in resins within a thermosetting process. Common uses of fiberglass include boats, automobiles, baths, hot tubs, water tanks, roofing, pipes, cladding, casts and external door skins.

Polycarbonate sheeting is producted using thermoform plastic. Polycarbonate sheets are easily worked, molded, and thermoformed.

How do i remove the labels from plastic sheets if they are stuck?

Although the labels are designed to peel off, the label adhesive sometimes bonds onto the sheet if it has stayed in the store for a fair amount of time.
Firstly, do not use any aggressive solvents or abrasive cleaners like handy andy .
One method is to use hot water and sunlight soap. However that sometimes leaves a slight residue of tackiness that attracts dirt .
We recommend something like a citric based cleaner or meths preferably diluted with 1:1 with warm water (or highly concentrated alcohol like ethanol)
Use a soft rag, not a pot scourer. Let it soak and then peel off.
