there is no really good solution right now.
Maybe a glass material with a textured material right behind it.
so you would have to make a nice texture for the polycarbonate ...

or you can use glass material and apply the texture right there ...
the glass material have the ability to use a texture

You have to aply a texture in your modeling program. That texture you can use then by clicking use texture. .....But is does not realy work for what I want. Still much to transparent. I want some almost milky transparensie.
