Bayer MaterialScience LLC has launched Makrolon SK polycarbonate sheet.

Bayer MaterialScience LLC has launched Makrolon SK polycarbonate sheet, the first in a series of Daylighting Solutions materials. Makrolon SK polycarbonate prismatic textured sheet is optimized to diffuse and distribute light while maintaining a high level of light transmission, making it ideal for daylighting applications. In skylight applications, the material can be draped or thermoformed and has a higher impact resistance than acrylic or glass.

Two color options are available: clear or white. A grade incorporating a UV-enhanced cap layer is available as Makrolon SK1 polycarbonate sheet.

Makrolon SK polycarbonate sheet provides commercial skylight and daylighting system manufacturers with a high-impact-strength glazing material that allows for reductions in lighting costs due to its balance of light transmission and diffusion.

Applications such as commercial skylights, canopies, overhangs, awnings and covered pedestrian walkways can all benefit from the combination of outstanding properties offered by this single material solution.
