tective, scratch-resistant and chemically resistant surfaces as well as functional coatings. Makrolon Hygard is a multi-layer laminated transparent sheet that offers protection against forced entry and ballistic impact. With additional fire safety modifications, certain products in the range are classified as building material class B1 (DIN 4102). Available in thicknesses between 0.75–15 mm, the standard sheet dimensions are 2050 × 1250 mm as well as 3050 × 2050 mm. Larger and custom dimensions can be produced on demand. Properties and design possibilities (product-dependent): —— Possible variants: transparent colourless, transparent coloured and white translucent —— 88 % light transmission for a thickness of 3 mm (Makrolon GP clear 099) —— A range of surface finishes from polished to textured —— Impact-resistant, shatterproof and bulletproof (depending on material thickness and layer structure) —— Reformable at cold and hot temperatures —— Service temperature range: – 100 °C to + 120 °C —— Building material class B2 (DIN 4102); Makrolon GP is also available as B1 for ­indoor use

Ecoresin. Ecoresin is a thermoplastic resin with a 40 % recycled material content that serves as a matrix for embedding different kinds of materials within the panel. The system of different intermediary layers, along with colours and surface textures, offer numerous different design possibilities. Varia products can also be made according to client’s individual wishes. Properties and design possibilities: —— A variety of possible different intermediate layers and colouring —— Surface finishes of the front and rear can be different —— High chemical stability —— UV-stabilised —— Suitable for use in wet rooms (showers, bathrooms) when edges are sealed —— Bonding using two-component adhesive (as with Plexiglas) —— Can be thermoformed at a temperature of about 110–120 °C —— Can be cold-formed up to a certain minimum radius —— Can be machined (working properties much like MDF) —— Panel thicknesses 1.5, 3, 5, 6, 10, 12, 19 and 25 mm —— Dimensions 1219 × 2438 mm, 1219 × 3048 mm, special dimensions 1524 × 3048 mm —— Fire safety classification: Euro class B, s1, d0
