Arlaplast MAKROLIFE™

Arlaplast

Makrolife Transparent polycarbonate (PC) is a virtually unbreakable material for the toughest environments. Makrolife Transparent PC has high clarity and good optical performance for applications where good visibility is important. It also has excellent temperature performance which gives good fire properties, the material is even self-extinguishing. Transparent PC is well suited for thermoforming or machining. Arla Plast has a wide portfolio of transparent PC sheets. Our transparent PC is available in different optical qualities, colours, frost, light transmission and with different surface structures. We also have a solar control version that helps to reduce temperature by letting the light pass but keeping the UV-radiation out. Special resins are used when FA (food approval) or FR (flame retardant) characteristics are needed. Most products can be chosen with a protecting UV-layer on top.

MAKROLIFE™ is transparent polycarbonate sheet with double sided UV-protection. The product is produced with vast knowledge of our production team experienced in producing mono, co and tri-extrusion. The product has a UV protection layer guaranteed against UV radiation and yellowing hence excellent for outdoor applications where Glass is used. The product is virtually unbreakable with extremely high impact resistance and offers high temperature performance too. MAKROLIFE™ provides designers, specifiers and architects with possibilities to use transparent polycarbonate sheets in applications where high clarity and optical performance is required. The consistent high quality demands from the market helps to improve machining, screen printability and thermoformability.

EXCELLENT FIRE PERFORMANCE complying requirements to EN 13501-1 (EUROPEAN BUILDING STD). In case of fire, the sheet will melt and allow venting where heat and smoke will be let out and therefore reduce the growth of fire by flame spread.
