New York State Office of Mental Health Approves New High Performance Polycarbonate Sheet for Use in All Facilities

Bayer Materials Science, LLC announces that its Sheffield Plastics business headquartered here has gained approval for its Makrolon® MAK 15 polycarbonate sheet as a high impact, break-resistant clear glazing material from the New York State Office of Mental Health.

Sheffield, MA (Vocus) March 28, 2010 -- Bayer Materials Science, LLC announces that its Sheffield Plastics business headquartered here has gained approval for its Makrolon® MAK 15 polycarbonate sheet as a high impact, break-resistant clear glazing material from the New York State Office of Mental Health.

The state agency approved the new product for exterior and interior applications after the material met rigorous performance standards for human impact, flammability and weathering life. These standards often serve as a benchmark for public facilities in other states as well.

According to the manufacturer, Makrolon MAK 15 is the result of a five-year R&D program with its parent-company Bayer Material Science, LLC. In addition to its inherent break-resistance, the new material delivers up to twice the abrasion resistance and weathering life due to UV exposure over prior polycarbonate sheet materials. As a result, provides longer life and reduced maintenance for external glazing and for interior partitions, windows and doors.

Based on performance improvements made possible with its new technology, Sheffield Plastics also backs Makrolon MAK 15 with an unprecedented 15 year warranty on weathering life, yellowing, abrasion resistance and breakage.

The new product is available through the manufacturer’s national network of distributors. Administrators and facilities managers can find complete information on the product at or by calling the company at 1-877- 413-7957.

Bayer MaterialScience LLC is one of the leading producers of polymers and high-performance plastics in North America and is part of the global Bayer MaterialScience business with nearly 15,100 employees at 30 sites around the world and 2008 sales of 9.7 billion euros.
