Abrasion & Scratch-Resistant Polycarbonate

AR Polycarbonate Sheet is an abrasion resistant and enhanced UV-resistant sheet that offers glass-like hardness coupled with the impact strength of standard polycarbonate sheeting. Additionally, AR polycarbonate offers enhanced resistance from yellowing and hazing for an extended service life in high profile architectural glazing and is warranted against excessive yellowing, hazing, breakage, and loss of light transmission.

Applications of Abrasion Resistant Polycarbonate Sheeting

Typical applications for abrasion resistant polycarbonate sheet include school, hospital and bus shelter glazing. It is also used extensively in correctional and psychiatric facilities. Additionally, the product performs well for view windows and machine guards in harsh chemical environments. Due to its abrasion-resistant coating, AR polycarbonate plastic sheeting cannot be cold-formed like MAKROLON GP and SunLife. 

Features and Benefits of Abrasion Resistant Polycarbonate Sheet

Abrasion resistant polycarbonate sheeting is a popular material for new construction and replacement glazing for a variety of applications. AR polycarbonate is specialized plastic sheeting that offers higher UV and abrasion resistant qualities than standard polycarbonate sheeting while maintaining the qualities its best known for. This type of polycarbonate sheet has unrivaled impact, strength, and clarity qualities along with a 7-year warranty against loss of light transmittance and breakage. The improved performance characteristics of abrasion resistant polycarbonate sheet lends to significantly lowered maintenance cost compared to other glazing materials such as glass or acrylic sheet

Abrasion-resistant polycarbonate sheet meets a number of regulatory code compliance and certifications including: 

  • UL 972: Burglary Resistant File #BP2126
  • Miami-Dade County NOA #12-0605.05
