Bayer MaterialScience showcases polycarbonate sheet product for heavy-duty equipment at CONEXPO

During CONEXPO 2014, Bayer MaterialScience exhibited its various polycarbonate sheet products which can be utilized for heavy-duty equipment window glazing.

Tree limbs, rocks, mud or other debris are just a few of the dangers operators of heavy-duty equipment may face during a typical day at the “office.” Replacing glass operator cab windows with tough, durable polycarbonate glazing in construction, forestry, agricultural or other types of heavy-duty vehicles can help protect personnel from these occupational hazards. 
Bayer MaterialScience LLC offers a range of polycarbonate sheet products designed for heavy-duty equipment window glazing – an application with rigorous 
requirements, including high optics, impact resistance and enhanced weathering capabilities. Bayer highlighted these materials at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2014, March 4 to 8 in Las Vegas. 
Bayer’s engineered polycarbonate sheet products for this market feature proprietary hardcoat technology for excellent abrasion and chemical resistance, and long-lasting outdoor weathering performance. Additionally, these materials are virtually unbreakable, for enhanced operator safety, and optically clear with low distortion and outstanding visibility. Bayer’s product portfolio for this market includes: 

  • Makrolon HV (heavy vehicle) polycarbonate sheet 
  • Makrolon AR (abrasion resistant) polycarbonate sheet
  • Makrolon FC (formable hard coat) polycarbonate sheet 
  • Makrolon TX (truck glazing) polycarbonate sheet 
  • Hygard laminate 
  • Makrolon OP (optical grade) polycarbonate sheet 

A supplier of extruded thermoplastic sheet products for more than 60 years, Bayer offers an extensive stocking inventory and full range of standard industry 
colors. In addition to glazing for heavy-duty equipment windows, the company’s broad portfolio of Makrolon polycarbonate sheet products has been proven in the architectural, security, transportation, industrial and recreational markets.
