Makroform: New applications for “Makrolon” in security

With its new polycarbonate grade, “Makrolon Hygard”, Germany’s Makroform GmbH, a joint venture of Bayer, and Röhm, hopes to unlock a new market in security applications. Developed with armoured cars, banks or convenience stores or even prisons in mind, the product made of multiple layers of PC or PC/acrylic with bonding inter-layers, comes in six levels of protection ranging from containment-rated sheet up to bullet resistant strengths capable of withstanding multiple rounds of fire from super-power hand guns. Makroform says the hard coated surface has “exceptional” resistance to abrasion and UV degradation.
