Polycarbonate Sheet Line Delivers Best-in-Class Optics and Durability

Sheffield Plastics Inc., A Bayer MaterialScience Company, has announced what is believed to be the largest and most technologically-advanced polycarbonate sheet manufacturing line ever built. The new sheet production line located in Sheffield, MA utilizes state-of-the-art process technology, and can produce sheet that offers superior optical qualities.

Used for architectural glazing, MAKROLON® polycarbonate sheet is as clear as glass and many times stronger. It is also many times stronger than acrylic sheet, offering a margin of safety that no other clear glazing material can equal. To meet the challenge of prolonged exposure to sun and weather, Sheffield’s MAKROLON SL offers the impact protection of MAKROLON and the UV resistance of acrylic. MAKROLON AR combines high impact strength with superior abrasion and chemical resistance and MAKROLON HYGARD laminate is a high performing security glazing material that offers proven resistance to physical and ballistic attack.
