Breakproof headlamp lenses of Makrolon® Imagine driving along a hilly road at night. Suddenly, some chunks of stone come loose from the steep rocky wall, and although you do an emergency stop, a piece of rock hits one of the headlamps at full force. Somewhat shaken, you get out and, to your surprise, find that both headlamp lenses are still intact. But then that's not surprising: they’re made of breakproof Makrolon®.
Greater safety means more driving enjoyment
Today's cars can never be safe enough. And reliable headlamps are a vital aspect of safety. If the headlamp lenses are made of transparent Makrolon® plastic, they will not even crack if the car turns over in the notorious "elk test".
Unlimited freedom in design
Makrolon® headlamp lenses are also weather-resistant and lighter than their glass counterparts. But it is not only drivers who enjoy the benefits of this high-tech plastic. Vehicle designers are also delighted with it because its excellent forming characteristics give them enormous design scope. In fact, many car brands can actually be identified in the dark from the characteristic shape of their headlamps.
You can recognize an excellent product by the Makrolon® label. This high-tech plastic from Bayer MaterialScience gives greater added value. If it's quality you want, you can count on Makrolon®!
