Bayer Corporation has developed a polycarbonate film which will retain a low first-surface gloss after forming and molding operations. The Makrofol DE VLG 7-1D film provides the lowest surface gloss available. Traditional polycarbonate film will become glossy and lose its texture during thermoforming, high-pressure forming and film insert molding operations. With Makrofol DE VLG 7-1D it is no longer necessary to overprint a first-surface decorated film to control first-surface gloss. Makrofol is ideally suited for flat appliqu applications, like appliance nameplates, dials and electronics. Three thicknesses are available, 0.010, 0.015 and 0.020 in., in 24-in. by 48-in. sheets, and in rolls up to 48 in. wide.
