Durable Polycarbonate Sheets

Dec. 14, 2006
Makrolon polycarbonate sheets are reportedly as clear as glass, yet many times stronger.

They are also said to be many times stronger than acrylic sheets, offering a margin of safety that no other clear glazing material can equal. Makrolon SL offers the impact protection of polycarbonate and the UV resistance of acrylic. Makrolon AR combines high-impact strength with abrasion and chemical resistance. Makrolon Hygard, a security glazing laminate, resists physical and ballistic attack.
