Makrolon® resists heat and attracts innovators

Copied to clipboard

Makrolon® polycarbonate is extremely robust, lightweight with glass-like transparency and is impact resistant – even at low temperatures. It also has a high dimensional stability and is easily molded, yet displays excellent heat resistance with a glass transition temperature of up to 148ºC.

A thermoplastic with truly diverse applications, Makrolon® is used in medical devices, automotive headlamps, sporting equipment, electronics, eyewear, architectural glazing LED lighting, and numerous other products. The broad portfolio of Makrolon® polycarbonate resins from Covestro includes general purpose, lighting, medical and food contact, flame-retardant, impact-modified and glass-fiber reinforced grades, which can be used for injection molding, extrusion and blow molding. Stronger and lighter than glass, polycarbonate also provides energy and CO2 emission savings. All of which explains why Makrolon® has been trusted for decades and continues to pave the way for tomorrow’s product innovations.
