GE Plastics' Lexan Thermoclear sheet is being used for the roofs of three stadiums under construction for the Union of European Football Associations' Euro 2008 football championship, according to a news release from the Pittsfield, Mass., company. The versatile thermoplastic glazing material, which has been used in arena roofing and other glazing for more than 25 years, delivers a unique combination of advantages in roofing for large, complex structures like stadiums: light weight, high-impact resistance, and the ability to be easily formed into compact shapes. At left, Wankdorf Stadium in Bern, Switzerland, features Lexan Thermoclear SunXP sheet. In Austria, the Klagenfurt and Salzburg stadiums also will use the sheet.
