Low Flammability Polycarbonate Sheet

Sheffield Plastics Inc., a Bayer MaterialScience Company, announced that it has received a Certificate of Material Excellence for its MAKROLON® LF Low Flammability polycarbonate sheet material from Material ConneXion®, the world’s largest resource for information on new and innovative materials.

Along with the award, MAKROLON LF will be included in Material ConneXion’s extensive global resource library of materials that is on display at its offices and can be accessed online by architects, engineers, industrial and interior designers worldwide via the Internet at

MAKROLON LF is ideal for applications requiring flame inhibiting polycarbonate such as transparent interior aircraft components, electronic enclosures, gaskets, spacers, switchgears, electrical devices, thermoformed equipment and other current-carrying components. It is UL 94 V-0 listed and meets stringent FAR 25.283 A and B flammability requirements.

The material is easy to form and can be easily die cut, punched and sheared for the most demanding fabrication needs. It features improved ductility and reduced brittleness for superior impact strength, many times that of float glass and acrylic. It is also UV stabilized and offers excellent optics.

Standard clear and custom colors are available in gauges ranging from .080” to .250”.
