Makrolon® FR – the flame retardant solution for your safety

Outstanding fire classifications for indoor applications

The Makrolon® FR solid sheet, which has been tested for its fire-resistant properties, is used wherever the use of flame retardant materials is required, for example, in public transport vehicles or in the production of electrical appliances. If, for example, a fire source develops as a result of a short circuit, this can spread quickly. Makrolon® FR can significantly reduce the spread of flames compared to other transparent, thermoplastic materials.

Makrolon® FR is UL94-V0 rated as of 2 mm thickness, and complies with EN 45545-2 (European fire standard for rail applications) requirements R4, R22, R23 and R24.

Typical applications for Makrolon® FR sheets include:

  • Lighting fixtures in railway vehicles or other modes of public transport
  • Electrotechnical components and guards which have to comply with the following fire protection requirements:
    • UL94: Fire protection requirements for the use of plastic materials for parts in devices and applications, for example plastic casings, switches, etc.
    • EN 45545-2 or FAR 25.853: Fulfilment of the fire protection requirements for material use in railway vehicles or in the field of aviation, for example, for lamp covers, linings, etc.
  • Any application where improved fire behaviour is needed for fire safe solutions

Available types:

  • Makrolon® FR clear 099: in 2 to 5 mm sheet thickness in the format 2050 x 3050 mm
  • Makrolon® FR DX white 139: in 3 mm sheet thickness in the format 2050 x 3050 mm

The sheets offer protection against involuntary breakage and wilful destruction. Makrolon® FR sheets can be thermoformed, cold-curved and machined with ease.
