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.
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.
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.
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.
High impact strength and high light transmission combined with good insulation values.
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 in 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.
Easy to thermoform and fabricate ABS is a 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), and 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 types 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.
PC/ABS is a modern solution for demanding thermoforming applications. PC/ABS offers good impact strength and a wide working temperature range with better fire performance than ABS.
Arla Plast offers PC/ABS – ATECH® 5100 (50/50) or (70/30) with or without UV stability. Matt ABS surface can be chosen on one or both sides. Different colours and different surface structures can be chosen. Arla Plast also offers a PC/ABS based product that fulfils the ECE R118.03 for interiors in busses, ATECH 5103.02-R118-7-8.
Easy to fabricate and thermoform without pre-drying.
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.
We also 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.

Arla Plast offers a selection of chairmats for smart floor protection – CHAIRMAT™.
Our chairmats are made of Polycarbonate for maximum strength. Polycarbonate is an environmental friendly material that is 100% recyclable and are also free from smell and do not contain any PVC. Polycarbonate does also have higher temperature resistance compared to PVC, which makes it suitable for floor heating and gives less risk for burn marks of cigarettes, ashes etc.
To avoid sliding, the chairmats either are equipped with an anti-slip bottom surface for floors or with spikes for carpets. To make a perfect fit, chairmats can be ordered in different colours and in different sizes.

SAPHIR® is coated polycarbonate (PC) sheets from Arla Plast. We have many years of experience in sheet extrusion. This knowledge enables us to optimize the sheet properties to fit different needs and various applications.
We choose selected raw materials for the sheet core and surface layer depending on the intended application. The sheet quality and properties will vary during production runs, which allows us to select sheets depending on quality needs. There are several coatings available for instance to achieve maximum surface hardness or to allow certain flexibility for drape forming. To help and choose what quality best fits your needs, we divide our SAPHIR® products in three main application areas: General purpose, Security and Lamination.
At Arla Plast we have developed and fine-tuned the extrusion techniques for plastic sheets since the 60s. We have developed the professional knowledge over many years, the machinery resources, the feel for quality and the willingness to always do a good job. Our experience ensures that you receive a product which satisfies your needs.
Good product quality is our primary target to be a good supplier, but this is not enough. Thanks to the cooperation with our customers and suppliers we have learnt the meaning of high flexibility, delivery precision and good service in order to build trust and long term relations.
Today Arla Plast is one of the leading extruders of plastic sheets in Europe. But that is not good enough. Every day we strive for becoming better by developing new materials, new quality specifications and taking care by lowering our environmental impact. All in order to become and to remain your best long term partner.
Today we are 250 employees working at Arla Plast and we are represented in 30 different countries. Our turnover is ca 800 MSEK.
