Rodeca translucent polycarbonate roofing and facade sheets were used for the facade of the Bates Smart designed National Centre for Synchrotron Science (NCSS) in Melbourne.

The polycarbonate is finished in a two coloured paint which changes from a purple to green tint depending on the light. The polycarbonate translucent panels are a tough, lightweight, fully recyclable plastic.

It is very safe as it does not support combustion.
