LEXAN* 8A13F Film

Product Datasheet

DESCRIPTION

LEXAN* 8A13F is a one side matte, one side polished transparent polycarbonate film and is specifically designed to help eliminate pinholes in demanding backlit applications. The next generation of our proven polish/matte polycarbonate film, Lexan 8A13F films offer the same excellent clarity, heat resistance, and dimensional stability with an even a smoother surface. The matte texture offers mar resistance, and can be used over light-emitting devices (LEDs). It’s low gloss level reduces glare in automobile int eriors and office environments. Recent technology improvements now in effect reduce texture variation by 50% and allow improved gauge control (see below)
