XtruClear Applications

XtruClear sheet/films are of high optical clarity and high transparency / light transmission properties before and after machining make them suitable for all kinds of challenging applications.

These thermoplastic films/sheet are tailored to meet the most demanding needs across a wide range of applications some of the advantages are the excellent impact strength and rigidity. Ultra-fast forming cycle times and good deep-draw behaviour with uniform wall thickness. XtruClear is suitable for external use as natural PET is excellent for up to 5 years exterior applications and for increased weather resistance an optional UV absorbing cap layer surface protection can be applied by co-extrusion to both sides of the sheet which can increase the weather resistance for up to 10years.
