Makrofol® DE is a transparent or colored extruded film made of Covestro Makrolon® polycarbonate. Makrofol® DE is noted for its outstanding graphic quality. Makrofol® DE is used in particular for nameplates, labels, automotive applications and medical applications.
Makrofol® UV is a range o f UV-protected polycarbonate films. They are particularly suitable for parts subjected to high levels of UV light. In addition, they offer the well-known benefits of Makrofol® such as good optical, thermal and mechanical properties.
Makrofol® FR 7-2 is a transparent, flame-retardant polycarbonate fi lm which has a velvet finish on one side and a fine matt finish on the other. With its UL94 V-0 flammability rating, Makrofol® FR 7-2 is suitable for a variety of applications such as trade show displays and nameplates.
Makrofol® SR are polycarbonate films provided with a PMMA layer. The films combine the strengths of PMMA, such as high scratch resistance and chemical resistance, with the processing advantages of polycarbonate.
Makrofol® HS films are coated polycarbonate films with very good scratch resistance and chemical resistance. They combine the excellent optical properties of polycarbonate with all the advantages of a surface coating.
Makrofol® HF is a new product family of polycarbonate films which have a scratchproof coating but can nevertheless be thermally formed. They are coated with a formable Dual Cure system that only finally cures with UV light after forming.
The first representative of this product family is Makrofol® HF. The film produces finishes with a deep gloss (piano effect), has very high chemical resistance and good abrasion resistance. It attains a 1H classification in the pencil hardness test (ISO 15184, 500 g). The film can be formed with narrow radii and a high depth of draw.
Makrofol® ID is a range of special films for documents such as ID cards. In this segment, polycarbonate is favored particularly in applications where high demands exist with regard to service life and exposure to mechanical and thermal loads. Special security features can be integrated, and modifications can be made to guarantee high-contrast laser printing. White Makrofol® ID grades are mostly used printed as opaque (light-impermeable) inlay films. New optimized grades are under development.
This light-diffusing film has been developed as a special grade for automotive instrument panels (illuminated dials, scales and displays). Makrofol® BL is glare-free and scratch resistant and has a fine matt or velvet surface (2-4 or 6-2). Makrofol® BL is noted above all for giving even illumination over a large surface area from a point light source, making it ideal for creative designs, e.g. in the lighting segment.
Makrofol® LM films are tailor-made for light management applications. The range includes light-scattering, light-guiding and light-reflecting films in various finishes and thicknesses..
