Light Diffusing Sheet

Light Diffusing MAKROLON® LD Sheet is a highly UV stable
polycarbonate product designed to provide superior light diffusion
characteristics while maintaining high light transmission. The
proprietary diffuser technology eliminates visible hot spots from
pinpoint LED lights in typical flat and formed sign applications. The
sheet is easy to form, fabricate and decorate and has excellent impact
strength and dimensional stability. MAKROLON® LD is offered
with a ten (10) year limited product warranty against breakage.
The terms of the warranty, are available upon request.

MAKROLON® LUMEN XT Sheet is a translucent polycarbonate
product with a textured surface on one side specifically
designed for lighting lenses. It features a unique combination of high
light diffusion and high light transmission through a combination of
optimized surface texture and advanced diffuser technologies.


When compared to other light diffusing products such as glass and
acrylic, Makrolon® Lumen XT Sheet has superior impact strength
and toughness. Its higher flammability resistance and wider service
temperature range provide an additional performance advantage over
acrylic diffusers.


The wide range of standard diffusion levels as well as both a warm
(LW) or a cool (LC) hue offers designers the flexibility to maximize light
fixtures’ aesthetics and performance. Other surface textures are available
for additional design options.


Applications for Makrolon® Lumen XT are Interior LED and
conventional lighting fixtures. Product is available in 1/16” and 1/8”
and carry Flammability rating of UL-94 V2.
