Dear all: I am planning to substitute glass and use polycarbonate sheets instead on my solar oven and my solar dryer. Although I have read some warnings on bottled water for example, I have not found any fact or research based argument to avoid the use of polycarbonate on solar cooking applications.
Obviously it has many advantages: weight, resistance to impact, resistance to temperature, etc. Please let me know if any you know of any solid information that advises not to use cellular polycarbonate sheets in solar cooking applications. Octavo Torres--Octaviotorres 15:56, 1 August 2009 (UTC)
