Exceptional High performance polycarbonate sheeting for technical applications such as Architectural, OEM, Industrial, Security, Transportation, Recreation, Sign application, Forestry Glazing & Mining.
GAT Technologies is the Bayer Material Science preferred distributor for high performance Makrolon polycarbonate and Makrolon Hygard safety and security laminate sheeting.
This includes products such as - Makrolon General Purpose polycarbonate sheet, Makrolon Ultra Violet - UV2 polycarbonate sheet, Makrolon Abrasion Resistant AR2 (AR) Hard Coated polycarbonate sheet and the complete range of Makrolon Hygard® and Makrolon Hygard® Sentinel polycarbonate and glass clad polycarbonate laminates.
Makrolon Hygard® laminated polycarbonate sheet products were developed to meet AS/NZS 2343:1997, UL 752 Level I, II, III, and VI for Ballistics and HP White TP0500 level I, II, IV and V for attack. Hygard laminated polycarbonate sheet offers excellent strength to weight ratios and is ideally suited for transparent glazing in the Architectural, Security and Forestry Glazing markets. Hygard products either meet or exceed the performance of competitive products and are backed by industry-leading warranties.
All Hygard products incorporate Makrolon® polycarbonate sheet produced for high optical quality in security glazing laminates. Exterior surfaces have a proprietary Makrolon AR (AR2) abrasion resistant hardcoat that facilitates cleaning and resists marring, chemical attack, and graffiti.
Unlike glass-clad products, Makrolon Hygard® all-polycarbonate laminates resists spalling and white-out after repeated high force and ballistic impacts, an advantage in maintaining visibility of a threat during an attack.
Makrolon® AR2 - Abrasion resistant
Makrolon® AR-2 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 Makrolon® AR2 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 surface technology is also avaialable in AR-1 (AR1), a one side hardcaoted Makrolon® high Optical grade sheet suitable for lamination to other substrates as the exterior surface.
Makrolon® 15 - Extended Abrasion and UV Resistance
Extended abrasion and UV resistance Makrolon® 15 sheet is a polycarbonate product that offers high impact resistance, weathering life, and optical quality. It provides a clear aesthetic advantage over wire glass and metal screens for security glazing. Makrolon 15 withstands vandalism, forced entry attempts, and accidental impacts to minimize the risk of theft and glass replacement in damage prone areas.
Advanced manufacturing technology has resulted in high optical quality with minimal distortion in clear and standard glazing tints. The abrasion resistant coating, applied to both sides, provides up to twice the life of prior polycarbonate sheet products. Makrolon 15 sheet has a fifteen (15) year Limited Product Warranty against breakage, yellowing, and loss of light transmission.
