Premium Polycarbonate Sheet
Plaskolite LLC, North America’s largest manufacturer of thermoplastic sheet products, announced the launch of TUFFAK® Polycarbonate Sheet, a premium polycarbonate sheet product formerly known as Makrolon.

As part of the Aug. 1 acquisition of the Covestro polycarbonate sheet business, Plaskolite secured the Makrolon product line and a limited time license to use the Makrolon name. TUFFAK is the new name for those Makrolon sheet products. The name is the only change – the product itself and all manufacturing processes will remain the same. TUFFAK polycarbonate sheet is used in interior windows, automotive parts, security glazing, sign and lighting and other applications requiring a combination of strength and light weight.

“We will continue to produce the same virtually unbreakable, colorful, innovative and dependable polycarbonate sheet using the same manufacturing processes made from the same resin our customers are accustomed to receiving,” said Mitchell Grindley, President and CEO, Plaskolite. “The addition of the polycarbonate sheet business and today’s introduction of the TUFFAK brand further expand Plaskolite’s unmatched portfolio of plastic sheet solutions.”

“The TUFFAK name has long represented quality, durability and innovation and we are proud to bring it back to our customers,” Grindley said.

The Covestro acquisition was one of several Plaskolite acquisitions this year. The company also acquired the continuous cast acrylic business of Lucite International, Inc., and Rotuba’s profile lighting business.
