Polycarbonate Sheet / Makrolon® Sheet / Lexan® Sheet
Polycarbonate Machining – Polycarbonate Milling – Polycarbonate Routing – Polycarbonate Turning – Polycarbonate Fabrication
Solid Polycarbonate sheets are clear as standard. The Polycarbonate offers an extreme impact strength that exceeds the majority of other clear plastics. Polycarbonate sheets can work in temperatures of -100 to +120 °C while still maintaining a high optical clarity and have a good fire rating. A popular plastic material used to make shatterproof windows, it has a better light transmission than regular glass.
Lexan® Sheet – Makrolon® Sheet
Polycarbonate sheets are also commonly known by the manufacturer’s names of Makrolon® and Lexan®. Various grades and modifications of the material exist from both manufacturers. Sentinel machines and fabricates in both Lexan® Sheet and Makrolon® Sheet. CNC Routing Polycarbonate Shapes and Polycarbonate cut panels.
Typical applications for Polycarbonate sheets include plastic machine guards, lighting fixtures, clear electrical shrouds, Polycarbonate safety screens and finger guards.
The Polycarbonate sheets offer high protection against breakage and deliberate destruction.
