Polycarbonate transparent

MAKROCLEAR™, MAKROLIFE™, SAPHIR®, COLORADO®

Transparent polycarbonate (PC) is a virtually unbreakable material for the toughest environments. Transparent PC has high clarity and good optical performance for applications where good visibility is important. It also has excellent temperature performance which gives good fire properties, the material is even self-extinguishing. Transparent PC is well suited for thermoforming or machining. Arla Plast has a wide portfolio of transparent PC sheets. Our transparent PC is available in different optical qualities, colours, frost, light transmission and with different surface structures. We also have a solar control version that helps to reduce temperature by letting the light pass but keeping the UV-radiation out. Special resins are used when FA (food approval) or FR (flame retardant) characteristics are needed. Most products can be chosen with a protecting UV-layer on top.

Product range:

MAKROCLEAR™ – standard PC sheets for general purpose applications.
MAKROCLEAR™ SQ – selected high quality PC sheet.
MAKROCLEAR™ FR – flame retardant for better fire properties
MAKROCLEAR™ FA – complies with food contact regulations.
MAKROCLEAR™ HARDCOAT– standard PC sheet with scratch resistant hardcoat treatment.

SAPHIR® FLEX – selected quality Polycarbonate with a unique flexible hard coating for curved applications
SAPHIR® FC – polycarbonate sheet with a formable coating for visor applications
SAPHIR® AF – polycarbonate sheet with Anti-fog coating for protection against water vapor condensation
SAPHIR® AS – antistatic coated Polycarbonate for protection against electrostatic charging
MAKROLIFE™ – standard PC sheets with UV protection. 10 years warranty.
COLORADO® – coloured PC sheets with or without UV protection.
COLORADO® LED –coloured PC sheets with diffusing properties.

 

Polycarbonate opaque

MAKROTECH™

Opaque polycarbonate (PC) is a virtually unbreakable material for the toughest environments. It has superior impact resistance and a wide temperature range. It also has better fire properties, the material is even self-extinguishing. Opaque PC is well suited for thermoforming, bending or machining.

Arla Plast offers opaque polycarbonate sheets – MAKROTECH™.

MAKROTECH™ is available with different surface structures and in all possible colours. We are experienced in extrusion of standard glossy colours, metallic colours as well as matt colours. Dual colours are also available thanks to coextrusion of two different colour layers. MAKROTECH™ can be choosen with or without stripes (for camera/robot identification). Many products can be chosen with a protecting UV-layer on top.

Product range:

MAKROTECH™ – opaque PC sheets for colorful, unbreakable solutions
MAKROTECH™ UV – one side UV protected sheet for indoor or outdoor applications
MAKROTECH™ MATT – with a matt surface
MAKROTECH™ FA – complies with food contact regulations
MAKROTECH™ FR – flame retardant for better fire properties
MAKROTECH™ – with Stripe – For camera/robot identification

 

Polycarbonate recycled

RPC™

Arla Plast offers recycled opaque PC sheets with different surface structures, with or without stripes (for camera/robot identification) and with or without co-extruded layer in different colours. RPC™ is a good value for money solution where a virtual unbreakable solution is needed.

Product range:

RPC™ – recycled PC
RPC™ UV
RPC™ Coex Colour
RPC™ Colour
RPC™ with stripe – For camera/robot identification

MULTICLEAR®

Multiwall is a light weight sheet with a cellular structure. The construction offers high impact strength and high light transmission combined with good insulation values.

Arla Plast offers multiwall polycarbonate sheets with maximum impact strength – MULTICLEAR®.

MULTICLEAR® is available in different thicknesses, cellular structures and in a choice of colours. Besides the smooth surface structure, HAMMER FINISH can be chosen. HAMMER FINISH has a special aesthetic appearance produced by creating a textured surface.

MULTICLEAR® is also available as a solar control version that helps to reduce temperature by letting the light pass, but keeping the IR-radiation out. Our products general have good insulation capability and all comes with 10 years warranty.

Product range:

MULTICLEAR® BOX 2 WALL
MULTICLEAR® BOX 3 WALL
MULTICLEAR® BOX 7 WALL
MULTICLEAR® STRONG
MULTICLEAR® LIGHT 8 WALL

Solid sheets and multiwall sheets

Arla Plast offers plastic solid sheets and multiwall sheets in the following materials:

Polycarbonate (see 2.4.1.4)
PETG (see below)
ABS (see 2.4.1.1)
PC/ABS (see 2.4.1.1)
TPE/TPO (see 2.4.1.1)

PETG transparent sheets

GRIPHEN®

PETG is easy to fabricate and thermoform without pre-drying, hence faster cycle times and cost savings can be achieved. Thermoforming and bending can be done with great accuracy and with maintained visual clarity.

Arla Plast offers PETG high impact transparent sheets – GRIPHEN®. Besides transparent sheets, GRIPHEN® can be chosen in a wide range of colours and also the unique frosty (satin) look. UV protection is available for most products. GRIPHEN® as a standard product is food approved.

Product range:

GRIPHEN® – standard transparent PETG sheet
GRIPHEN® UV – for outdoor use
GRIPHEN® COLOUR – translucent PETG sheets in a wide range of colours including an opal range.
GRIPHEN® COLOUR UV – for outdoor use
GRIPHEN® FROST – anti-reflex frosty surface

PETG opaque sheets

GRIPHTECH®

PETG is easy to fabricate and thermoform without pre-drying, hence faster cycle times and cost savings can be achieved. Thermoforming and bending can be done with great accuracy.

Arla Plast offers PETG high impact opaque sheets – GRIPHTECH®.

GRIPHTECH® is an opaque coloured co-polyester sheet which combines extremely good fabrication and thermo-forming properties with good impact strength. The product has good fire performance, it is self-extinguishable and also has low smoke generation during a fire.

We are experienced in extrusion of standard glossy colours as well as matt colours. Most products can be chosen with a protecting UV-layer on top.

ABS sheets, PC/ABS, TPE/TPO

ABS-sheets

ATECH®

ABS is a raw material with high impact strength. ABS also has impressive thermal qualities and is easy to thermoform and fabricate. This makes ABS a very popular material amongst thermoformers.

Arla Plast offers a wide range of ABS based products – ATECH®.

We have a selection of popular structures and long experience in colour matching and co-extrusion of dual colours.

Different top layers are available such as:

PMMA (matt or glossy)
Matt ABS
ASA (Matt or semi gloss)
Soft touch
Stripes can be attached for optical identification in packaging.

All products can be chosen with an extra UV stabilizer to improve weather resistance.

Recycling is an important part of the ABS business. Arla Plast can offer all possibilities in this field. Our total recycling concept, covering all type of ABS will help you minimize the material cost at the same time as minimizing the environmental impact. Thanks to our advanced technology and long experience in recycling, off cuts from ATECH® sheets can be reused in new sheets.

 

Product range of super high impact ABS:

ATECH® 3000 – with a semi gloss surface layer that thermoforms quickly
ATECH® 3100 – with matt surface layer that remains matt also after thermoforming
ATECH® 3200 – with a surface layer of high gloss PMMA (acrylic)
ATECH® 3300 – with a matt or semi gloss surface layer of ASA material
ATECH® 3400 – with a matt coloured PMMA surface layer

Product range:

ATECH® 5100 – with a matt ABS surface layer

TPE/TPO

TPE/TPO is a thermoplastic elastomer which is polyolefin based, hence also named thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO). It combines the high impact strength of elastomers with the stability and process ability of a thermoplastic material.  Good chemical and abrasion resistance are other characteristics. The sheets are easy to thermoform and fabricate.  The material can be recycled.

Arla Plast offers TPE/TPO with different Talcum content to achieve different grades of stiffness. A range of surface structures are available. Standard colours are black or grey and other colours are available upon request. UV-stability can be added as an option.
