Lexan® polycarbonate sheet exhibits an excellent balance of physical, mechanical and environmental properties which are maintained over a wide range of temperature and humidity conditions.

Properties vs Temperature
Lexan Polycarbonate is characterised by its excellent mechanical behaviour, maintaining high strength and stiffness when exposed to elevated temperatures over a long period of time. 

Impact Strength
Lexan Polycarbonate sheet is one of the toughest, transparent thermoplastic materials and can withstand impact from all kinds of objects, from stones to hammers without shattering.  Its proven energy absorbing characteristics are maintained at sub-zero winter temperatures or high summer temperatures.  Polycarbonate sheet has 250 times the impact strength of glass and so gives greater protection against vandalism and forced entry.

Solar Control
Transparent grades of Lexan Polycarbonate sheet have excellent light transmission of between 75 and 87% depending upon thickness.  However, for buildings in hot climates Lexan polycarbonate sheet is available in translucent grades of bronze, grey and opal white and Lexan Exell Venetian.  These grades significantly reduce solar heat build-up, helping to maintain comfortable interior temperatures.

Flat applications only
Due to its mar-resistant coating, Lexan Margard MR5-E and MRA3 sheet cannot be cold-formed. The sheet is intended for flat applications only.

Abrasion resistance
Tested for abrasion resistance, Lexan Margard MR5-E and MRA3 sheet exhibits significantly less hazing than uncoated polycarbonate sheet.

Lexan® Margard® Sheet FMR5-E (formable)
Lexan Margard FMR5-E is a transparent UV and abrasion resistant glazing material offering:

  • Extremely high impact strength, with the capacity to be cold-curved or drape-formed.
  • Dual hardcoated surface offering resistance against wear and tear.
  • High resistance to chemicals.

Processing

Lexan Margard FMR5-E can be cold-curved into shallow radii. It can also be drape-formed at a maximum temperature of 155°C, normally without pre-drying.

Curved applications
Lexan Margard FMR5-E the ideal glazing material for shaped applications such as curved windows, (e.g. revolving doors), partitions, skylights, barrel vaults, balcony glazing, stairglazing, shelters and machine safety guards.

Optical performance
Clear Lexan glazing offers excellent clarity and has the highest transmission in the visible light and near infra-red region of the spectrum. As it is essentially opaque to all wavelengths below 385 nanometres, it is ideal for protecting art, antiques, retail displays and fabrics from the damaging effects of UV rays.
