Lexan Film Gaskets

Lexan is a type of polycarbonate (PC) that is incredibly tough and resistant to impacts. It is frequently used in a variety of applications when materials must be strong and virtually unbreakable.

Elevating Protection with Lexan Polycarbonate Film

In addition to Lexan’s inherent durability, it offers a selection of three primary finishes, each tailored to meet specific needs:
This finish provides a high-gloss, smooth surface, offering an aesthetically pleasing look and pristine clarity. It’s an ideal choice when aesthetics are a top priority, and you want to showcase the material’s transparency and luster.

When you require a balance between aesthetics and functionality, gloss/matt finishes are your answer. The matte surface texture offers a touch of diffusion and eliminates unwanted glare. It also has the added advantage of masking scuffs, fingerprints, and scratches, maintaining a presentable appearance.


For applications where aesthetics take a back seat to robust protection, the matt/matt finish is the perfect choice. This texture effectively diffuses light, enhancing visibility while obscuring imperfections. It excels in applications where the primary focus is creating an extremely resistant protective surface.
