Allplastics Engineering has received a new shipment of clear abrasion resistant polycarbonate sheets in 3mm, 4.5mm, 6mm and 9.5mm thickness options. Thanks to the highly abrasion resistant surface, the polycarbonate panels are an excellent alternative for applications where glass is either too heavy or fragile. At almost half the weight of glass, polycarbonate offers 250 times the strength of float glass.

Lexan MR10 and Makrolon AR2 are suitable only for transparent applications. Backed by manufacturer’s warranties against abrasion, coating failure and breakage, the polycarbonate sheets come with enhanced UV resistance to protect against yellowing and hazing; Makrolon AR2 sheets provide a longer service life for high profile architectural glazing projects. Additionally, the lightweight panels offer superior optical clarity and chemical resistance.

Being unbreakable and abrasion resistant, these materials are perfect for security glazing in police stations, anti-vandal viewing panels in transport stations and public venues, earthmoving machinery, windows, forestry equipment, ship portholes, railway double glazing and heavy-duty guards among other applications.

Due to its mar-resisting coating, the polycarbonate sheet cannot be cold-formed and is intended only for flat applications.

Recommended applications also include bus shelters, balustrades, entrance doors, boat hatches, skylights, storefronts and machine guards.
