POLYCARBONATE GLAZING SHEET  LEXAN^{®}
/ marlon / ARLA 
Engineering & Design Plastics
mainly stock the LEXAN^{®}
and Marlon brands of polycarbonate (and to a
lesser extent in certain thicknesses and opals
ARLA), however we are able to source other
brands of polycarbonate sheet to customer
requirements.
Standard grade clear
polycarbonate (Lexan 9030112 / Marlon FS / Arla
Makroclear) is an extruded sheet, suitable for
indoor use in a variety of secondary glazing
applications including machine guarding.
Polycarbonate offers extremely high impact
strength and good mechanical strength over a
wide range of temperatures. Polycarbonate is the
toughest available glazing material, with ~200
times the impact strength of normal glass of
equal thickness.
Lexan Exell D, Marlon fsx longlife
and Arla Makrolife are suitable
for out door use. These grades are slightly more
expensive than the standard but have warranties
(normally 10 years) against discolouration.
Although Polycarbonate is
very strong in terms of impact, it will scratch
easily! Grades of polycarbonate with a hard coat
surface are available (Lexan Margard MR5E ,
Marlon fs Hard, and Arla Saphir) which improves
resistance to abrasion. It should be noted that
no hard coat plastic is designed to with stand
deliberate attacks with sharp objects. These
standard "hard coat" grades are only suitable for flat glazing applications. Margard FMR5E is
also available which
is scratch resistant and can be cold curved. The
scratch resistant grades normally carry a 10
year limited warranty against breaking due to
loss of impact strength through weathering and a
5 year limited warranty against excessive
yellowing and loss of light transmission due to
weathering.

Applications

Machine guards on
bottle or can filling and closing
machines, packaging machines, stamping
and embossing machines, labeling
machines, strapping machines, printing
machines, machine tools, rope
manufacturing machines, etc… 

Window shields on
cranes, forklifts, earth moving
machines, agricultural and wood
harvesting machinery, police vans, etc… 
 In the ship building and aircraft
industries:

Wind shields, hatch
way covers, doors, portholes,
distribution ducts on air craft heating
systems, cladding inside air craft
cabins, etc… Please note,
Glazing methods for polycarbonate differ
from those normally used for glass,
because of its greater thermal expansion
and flexibility. Care must be taken that
products used are compatible with
polycarbonate (EPDM  or Neoprene
rubbers, never plasticized PVC). Not all
silicone sealants are suitable.
Engineering & Design Plastics stock
silicone sealant to BS5889 type A, which
is compatible with polycarbonate.
