All Signs Point to Bayer MaterialScience as a Leading Supplier of Polycarbonate Sheet for Channel Letters and Other Signage Applications

Las Vegas, NV, April 08, 2013 --( On building exteriors and inside malls across America, businesses are using channel letters to attract attention and set themselves apart from the competition. When it comes to selecting a plastic sheet material that can meet the rigorous requirements of channel letters and other thermoformed applications, all signs point to Bayer MaterialScience LLC.

Bayer, a full-service sheet supplier to the sign industry, will highlight a new generation of engineered polycarbonate sheet products for signage at ISA International Sign Expo 2013. Here’s a preview.

Makrolon® LD polycarbonate sheet from Bayer helps to deliver uniform light diffusion and eliminates hot spotting for today’s LED signage, including channel letters. In fact, the exceptional light diffusion offered by this specialized sheet grade reduces shadowing – even at smaller LED-diffuser sheet distances – making it possible to design shallow channel letters and sign faces. This grade is an enhanced UV resistant product and meets the UL 879 standard for use in electric signs.

Makrolon SL polycarbonate sheet, an enhanced ultraviolet-resistant product with exceptional weatherability and superior impact strength, will also be featured. It is available in a variety of sheet and reel sizes, also meets the UL 879 standard for electrical signage. Applications include flat and formed sign faces. Bayer will also highlight a matte-finish grade of Makrolon SL polycarbonate sheet, which is ideal for adding a non-glare to high-performance signage.

A supplier of extruded thermoplastic sheet products for more than 60 years, Bayer offers an extensive stocking inventory and full range of standard industry colors. In addition to signage, the company’s broad portfolio of Makrolon polycarbonate sheet products has been proven in the architectural, security, transportation, industrial and recreational markets.
