One of the main advantages of the Makrolon UV AdLight polycarbonate sheets is that they harmoniously combine light transmission and light diffusion.

For outdoor advertising, Covestro is offering Makrolon UV AdLight solid polycarbonate (PC) sheets that combines design freedom and efficiency.

LEDs are very energy efficient lamps with a long life. A disadvantage is that they have – as background illumination – individual and clearly visible light spots, so-called LED hotspots.

One of the main advantages of the Makrolon UV AdLight polycarbonate sheets is that they harmoniously combine light transmission and light diffusion. In the case of backlighting using LEDs, the light is transmitted unchanged through the translucent solid sheet to ensure a homogeneous light distribution.

Even with slim applications, such as light boxes, visible LED hotspots are a thing of the past. Even without backlighting, the polycarbonate material attracts attention through its bright white surface.

Makrolon UV AdLight is easy to machine with conventional tools from wood and metal processing and can withstand continuous use of temperatures between -100°C to 120°C.

They are provided with a UV protection layer on both sides and have a glossy and a matt surface, have high impact strength at low weight and are virtually unbreakable. It is possible to print easily on the shiny side and they can be used flat or thermoformed, depending on the design, said Covestro.

Another highlight is the good fire protection classification (European standard EN 13501-1, B-s2-d0) as well as the ease of cleaning with simple water and a microfiber cloth. The product is particularly durable and has a guarantee for weather resistance.

Possible applications include shop signs, logos, profile letters, pylons, displays, city light posters, light boxes or even emergency signs in public buildings.
