Exolon® GP Eco

Reclaimed polycarbonate –

Exolon® GP Eco

Exolon® GP Eco is a clear, polished polycarbonate sheet which contains at least 40 % reclaimed material. Exolon® GP Eco offers extreme impact strength, high light transmission and resistance to a wide range of temperatures. Exolon® GP Eco sheets resist temperature of -100 to +120 °C, exhibit high optical clarity and have a good fire rating. Typical applications for Exolon® GP Eco sheets are machine guards, lighting fixtures, signs as well as door and wall partitions. The polycarbonate sheets can be thermoformed, cold-curved and machined with ease.
