Makrolon® is a popular Polycarbonate sheet under the brand of Covestro (previously Bayer). The Makrolon AR Sheet is an abrasion resistant Polycarbonate that offers improved abrasion resistance and surface hardness compared to the sheets standard offering.

As well as being abrasion resistant, the Makrolon AR Sheet is also UV resistant and has an improved surface hardness in much the same way as as our very own PolyGuard Sheet – Enhancing the life of all plastics and lowers chancing of yellowing and hazing whilst improving the longevity within application.

Makrolon AR is used in a wide variety of applications, including; schools, hospitals and other facilities where glazing has the benefit of being shatterproof and unsuitable for glass.

Whilst Makrolon AR is available in a wide range of different thicknesses, sheet size is often limited to full or half sheets – though these are available in Makrolon AR 2 as well as Makrolon AR 1 depending on if the finished use requires single or double sided coating.

Our own PolyGuard Hard Coated Plastic Sheet can be used in exactly the same environments as Makrolon AR but with a much wider range of sizes, thicknesses and even shade / colour.

Over its lifecycle, hard coated sheet result in a significant reduction in maintenance cost and liability risk versus that of other glazing materials.
