MAKROLON HYGARD®-The Ultimate Security Product AR Hard-Coat Technology Provides Exceptional Resistance to Physical Attack, Abrasion, and UV Degradation
Sheffield Plastics Inc. is a recognized market leader in the production of high performance thermoplastic sheet for over half a century. As one of the leading suppliers of high performance polycarbonate glazing products, Sheffield has been at the forefront of security glazing for years. Sheffield's new generation of laminates, featuring MAKROLON AR hard-coat technology, assures long lasting surface clarity and resistance to yellowing. Whatever the security application, MAKROLON HYGARD laminates offer unsurpassed performance versus competitive glass and glass clad polycarbonate products.

With its unique multilayer construction, MAKROLON HYGARD can withstand both physical attack and gunfire from high powered hand guns. This "None Tougher" laminate line offers multiple levels of protection ranging from certified containment glazing to Level 3 bullet-resistant material.

MAKROLON HYGARD laminates will not "spider web" or spall. This allows for complete vision, which can be critical for appropriate response in the event of an attack.
Typical applications include:

Designed for security installations such as detention and correctional centers, government facilities, and banks, MAKROLON HYGARD is being used increasingly for employee protection in 24-hour gas stations and convenience stores as well as other cash transaction areas.

MAKROLON HYGARD®- Combines MAKROLON AR Technology with the Latest Security Glazing Techniques for High Level Security and Cost Effective Installation

Increasing violent crime, readily available weapons, and larger glazed areas in modern detention center designs have created a need for higher performing security glazing materials. Sheffield Plastics has developed MAKROLON HYGARD to meet this need. Consisting of multiple layers of polycarbonate or polycarbonate/ acrylic with bonding interlayers, these "None Tougher", yet lightweight materials, offer proven resistance to physical and ballistic attack. Additionally, the relative light weight of MAKROLON HYGARD laminates, combined with easy on-site fabrication, give you a competitive edge on remodeling or retrofit projects where timely job completion is essential.

Sheffield offers MAKROLON HYGARD laminates in six levels of protection ranging from containment rated sheet to UL Level 3 bullet resistant material capable of withstanding multiple rounds fired from superpowered handguns. All MAKROLON HYGARD laminated products feature hard coated surfaces for exceptional resistance to abrasion and UV degradation and are covered by a limited warranty against coating failure, excessive yellowing, and structural delamination caused by manufacturing defects.
