LEXAN™ MARGARD™ Coated Sheet

What is LEXAN™ MARGARD™ coated sheet? 

SABIC’s lightweight coated LEXAN™ MARGARD™ sheet is one of our safe polycarbonate glazing solutions. The coated sheet not only has the usual properties of LEXAN™ material, but it also has a hard surface coating on one or both sides. LEXAN™ MARGARD™ sheet offers optical clarity combined with anti-fog behaviour and UV resistance. The LEXAN™ MARGARD™ sheet is highly resistant to abrasion and chemicals and has excellent weathering properties. The MARGARD™ sheet is also flame resistant and heat stable.

The surface of the coated MARGARD™ sheet offers extremely high impact resistance, minimising the risk of breakage, even when subjected to violent blows by heavy objects. The unique, hard surface coating of these impact-resistant plastics also provides a high level of protection against unsightly scratching, making it ideal for use in applications where frequent contact is likely.

The MARGARD™ plastics will also not shatter or splinter, reducing the risk of injury during a crash. The chemical-resistant plastic also has enhanced resistance to oil, paint, and other fluids, making it a perfect material to use around different chemicals. It maintains this impact resistance over a wide temperature range (-40°C to 120°C) or after prolonged outdoor exposure. Coated MARGARD™ Sheet offers a unique combination of properties, making it an excellent choice for many industries.
