Designers looking for a material with a high focus on product safety and effectiveness in food contact applications can confidently rely on Makrolon® polycarbonate approved by current regulations.
Makrolon® polycarbonate food contact grades offer long-lasting transparency, outstanding break resistance and superior dimensional stability. Makrolon® polycarbonate also delivers high heat resistance so that these components can withstand temperature fluctuations during washing.
Compared to glass, polycarbonate is not only more durable, but also significantly lighter in weight, which can result in reduced transportation and fuel costs. This benefit, along with its ability to be recycled, makes polycarbonate a more sustainable option.
