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