Aikon® PC AR 1020

Hard-coated polycarbonate –

Aikon® PC AR 1020

Aikon® PC AR 1020 is a hard coated polycarbonate sheet, which offers superior impact resistance combined with increased scratch resistance from the hard coating. AR 1020 material is hard coated with standard Momentive SilFORT PHC 587. Hard coated polycarbonate sheet also offers very high resistance to UV-radiation and protection against yellowing and loss of translucence. The coated surfaces are also well protected against harmful chemicals and cleaning agents.
