Makrolon® AR abrasion resistant polycarbonate sheet offers higher abrasion resistance and surface hardness to polycarbonate’s inherent performance benefits of impact, strength and clarity. Backed by a limited seven year warranty against breakage and loss of light transmission, Makrolon® AR abrasion resistant polycarbonate sheet features a proprietary hardcoat technology that offers protection against chemical and UV attack. Over its life-cycle, this results in a significant reduction in maintenance cost and liability risk versus that of other glazing materials. Applications include new construction and replacement glazing in schools, medical and correctional facilities, bus shelters, and anywhere flat glazing applications require abrasion resistant materials. Makrolon® AR sheet is a one or both sides hard-coated polycarbonate product that adds higher abrasion resistance and surface hardness to polycarbonate’s inherent performance benefits of impact strength and clarity. The proprietary hard-coat also provides chemical resistance and long lasting outdoor weathering performance. This product is available in clear, a range of standard tints, or can be custom matched to any color. Makrolon® AR sheet has a seven (7) year Limited Product Warranty against breakage, yellowing, and hazing.
