Bayer MaterialScience LLC produces consistent, high-quality polycarbonate sheet under
the Makrolon® polycarbonate sheet trade name. Forming and fabrication characteristics
and techniques are comparable to those of other commercial polycarbonate sheet products.
Makrolon® sheet is 300-times stronger than single-strength glass, and significantly
tougher than other transparent sheet materials of equal thickness. It’s unlikely that
Makrolon® sheet will break, shatter or chip when bombarded with thrown missiles such as
rocks, bricks or bottles. Nor is it likely that this material will break when hammered,
twisted or bent.
Makrolon® polycarbonate sheets are offered in a variety of grades specifically designed
for certain applications. Below is the various grades available, please feel free to
