- Extreme high impact resistance
- Lightweight: 50% lighter than glass
- High light transmission
- Freedom in design
- Savings on installation costs and electricity
- Contributes to obtain Leed credits
- Energy savings thanks to its high light transmission and insulation
This is the simplest solid polycarbonate product from our product range. Ideal for any type of application where extreme impact resistance is a must but the UV Protection is not fundamental.
Our Mono SL Polycarbonate offers the same impact resistance as Mono GP with additional one sided UV protection, resulting long lasting product which protects the inside areas against the harmful rays.
Offers double sided UV protection with additional finish against common scratches in one or both sides.
Mono AB (Anti Ballistic)
Mono AB is employed wherever special protection is required for persons and/or objects. These include high-level security areas such as banks, jeweler’s shops, prisons,court buildings or night desks. Other fields are possible targets for vandalism, e.g. museums or buildings with large glazed sections. Mono AB offer clear economic and functional advantages over bullet-proof glass.

Technical Specification of Solid Polycarbonate Sheets
The solid polycarbonate panels satisfy the most important construction codes like:
- CC-1* Category for construction applications (BOCA, ICBO, SBCCI)
- Underwriters’ laboratory flammability standards (UL 94 and UL 972) for glazing materials.

To thermoform Macrolux Solid sheet is important pre-dry in a dehumidifier oven (circulatory air). The pre-drying time depends on the thickness of the sheet.
|Sheet thickness||Maximum temperature of 121 ° C||Maximum temperature of 82.2ºC|
|2.00 mm||2 Hours||4 Hours|
|3.00 mm||6 Hours||14 Hours|
|4.50 mm||12 Hours||30 Hours|
|6.00 mm||24 Hours||50 Hours|
Macrolux Mono GP and SL polycarbonate sheets can be bent cold until a minimum curve radius depending on its thickness. As a rule, the radius of curvature should be equivalent to 100 times the material thickness. R = TX100
R = TX100
|Sheet bending based on thickness|
|Sheet thickness (T)||Minimum bend radius (R)|
|2.00 mm||20 cms|
|3.00 mm||30 cms|
|4.50 mm||45 cms|
|6.00 mm||60 cms|
|9.50 mm||95 cms|
|12.70 mm||127 cms|
