Bayer Material Science has introduced its new generation of engineered polycarbonate sheet products for signage: Makrolon LD and Makrolon SL. Makrolon LD helps to deliver uniform light diffusion and eliminates hot spotting for LED signage, including channel letters. Makrolon SL is an enhanced UV-resistant product with weatherability and impact strength; applications include flat and formed sign faces. Makrolon sheet products for sign applications can be inkjet printed with inks developed for polycarbonate substrate, Bayer reports (the exception: the hard coat grades are not recommended for ink decoration by any method). Both new products are available in sheet sizes of 52 and 75 in., and in reel sizes of 42 to 100 in.
