Makrofol – thermoplastic films (made of Makrolon)

Makrofol® is the brand name of the thermoplastic films that have been developed by Bayer. They consist of the polycarbonate Makrolon®. One of the strong points of Makrofol is its high heat resistance, which allows for a high degree of toughness and elasticity over a wide range of temperatures. In addition, Makrofol offers stiffness, electrical […]
