Polycarbonate

Products Overview

Introduction

For durability and design freedom, polycarbonate is a modern material ideal for a diverse range of glazing applications for schools, bus and smoking shelters, canopies and machine guards or encapsulation projects.

Overview

With an impact resistance 200 times that of glass and at only half the weight, polycarbonate sheet is the ideal product to use both internal and external for a diverse range of applications including signage, display, illuminated signage and poster covers.

Polycarbonate is also an ideal safety glazing material, covered walkways & balustrades where clarity, impact resistance, fire performance and the ability to absorb high levels of energy are critical requirements.

Marlon FS

Marlon FS flat polycarbonate is available in a range of tints, colours and finishes that offer different levels of light transmission and light diffusion depending on the designer or specifier’s requirements. Clear sheet provides high optical clarity, making it the ideal glazing option for those applications that require high levels of light transmission.

Depending on sheet thickness, clear Marlon FS offers exceptional light transmissions of between 80% and 92%. Marlon FS is also available in tinted options including bronze, opal, green, blue and grey offering varying degrees of solar control, resulting in cooler internal environments. Whilst solar transmission is reduced, the sheet continues to transmit free natural light, reducing the need for artificial light, helping reduce energy cost and associated CO2 emissions.

The weight of Marlon FS flat polycarbonate is only half that of plate glass, making handling and installation ultimately more convenient. The strength and rigidity of Marlon FS, FSX and FS Hard enhance the spanning capability, making the sheet self-supporting, resulting in reduced requirements for support structures and increased resource efficiency. The material is extremely practical and can be cut on site to the required shape or size, minimizing waste. Marlon FSX features UV protection on both sides of the sheet which can help reduce both installation time and unnecessary losses due to incorrect installations.

Marlon FS flat polycarbonate sheet provides excellent design flexibility. It can be cut, cold curved or thermoformed, without losing impact strength or durability, enabling the designer to create interesting glazing solutions for a bright naturally lit interior environment. It is the ideal glazing solution for covered walkways, canopies, skylights, domes, bus shelters and train windows. In addition, Marlon FS flat polycarbonate can be screen printed directly and the smooth and even surface makes it ideal for vinyl adhesion. It has a great bonding compatibility and its resistance to knocks and scratches makes it perfect for use in high traffic areas and applications including signs, point of sale and store fixtures.

Marlon FSX Longlife

Marlon FSX Longlife: Protects people against harmful UV radiation

Marlon FSX Longlife features a co-extruded UV protection on both sides of the sheet cutting out 98% of the harmful UV radiation, making it the ideal product for use in some of the worlds’ toughest climate conditions. The UV protective layer enables longer sheet life expectancy, prevents yellowing and guards against loss of strength. Combined with high impact and chemical resistance, light weight and high light transmission, Marlon FSX is the superior glazing material for architectural rooflights, vertical glazing and specialist glazing applications.

Marlon FSX Hard

Marlon FSX Hard: Legendary strength 200 times greater than glass it is virtually unbreakable

Marlon FS Hard is an extruded polycarbonate flat sheet combined with an abrasion and chemical resistant coating. The highly resilient and abrasion resistant surface coating resists marks and scratches, vandalism, graffiti and physical attack and also withstands contact from a wide range of cleaning agents, organic solvents and corrosive elements.

Marlon FS Hard offers a superior toughness for those areas where high performance and reliability are essential whilst providing high natural light transmission. Combined with its shatter and splinter resistance it is much safer than glass, making it the ideal safety glazing solution for high traffic areas including bus stops, traffic signage, commercial glazing, schools and other public and commercial areas.

Marlon FS flat polycarbonate is available in a range of tints, colours and finishes that offer different levels of light transmission and light diffusion depending on the designer or specifier’s requirements.

Mirrored Polycarbonate

Polycarbonate mirror sheet is intended for areas at high risk from impact such as mirrors in prisons, horse stable mirrors, hospital mirrors or similar applications where the significantly improved impact strength over standard acrylic mirror is required.

In fact, polycarbonate mirror is virtually unbreakable, with an impact strength of around 30 times that of acrylic mirror, and over 250 times greater than that of glass in equal sheet thickness. It is specified for use in thousands of products thanks to its ease of fabrication, low heat loss and attractive clear edge colour. From point-of- sale displays to signage, lighting and dozens of other applications, Polycarbonate mirror sheet is an ideal design solution.
