Sunlife Polycarbonate Sheet

MAKROLON® SL 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, Covestro
developed MAKROLON® SL polycarbonate sheet. It offers the best of both worlds–
the impact protection of MAKROLON® polycarbonate sheet and the UV resistance
of acrylic. Utilizing advanced formulations combined with state-of-the-art extrusion
technology, Covestro has created a tough, consistent quality product that will exhibit
superior performance for years to come.


Performance Warranty: The performance of MAKROLON® SL polycarbonate sheet has been well documented through years of laboratory and field testing. In side-by- SunLife Polycarbonate 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. Light Diffusing Sheet side comparative testing under severe conditions, MAKROLON® SL polycarbonate sheet consistently outperformed competitive materials utilizing older technology. Materials were also tested in forms and bends well beyond recommended guidelines, proving that the integrity of SL, as well as its UV resistance, will not change if the sheet is bent or cold-formed. So conclusive was this testing that Covestro offers a limited warranty against excessive yellowing, loss of light transmission, and breakage.
