Polycarbonate UV Grade sheets are suited for outdoor applications where outstanding weatherability and long life expectancy are required.
Polycarbonate sheet is one of the toughest, transparent thermoplastic materials. It withstands impact from all kinds of objects, from stones to hammers without shattering. Its proven energy absorbing characteristics are maintained at sub-zero winter temperatures or high summer temperatures. Polycarbonate sheet has 250 times the impact strength of glass and so gives greater protection against vandalism and forced entry.
Prolonged exposure to the sun can weather even the most durable of surfaces. In the past, acrylic was often chosen for plastic glazing applications because of its inherent resistance to yellowing over time. But, compared to polycarbonate, the relative brittleness of acrylic made its impact strength insufficient for demanding, vandal resistant applications. To meet this need, MAKROLON® Sheet UV offers the best of both worlds–the impact protection of MAKROLON® Sheet and the UV resistance of acrylic. Utilising advanced formulations combined with state-of-theart extrusion technology, MAKROLON® Sheet is a tough, high quality product that will exhibit superior performance for years to come. This performance is backed by a comprehensive 10 year limited warranty against breakage, loss of light transmission and excessive yellowing from date of purchase. Request warranty for full details.
