Lexan or Maragard

4 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post

Hi All,

So whenever you talk about clear doors, everyone says Lexan. Lexan is just a brand of polycarb and pretty cheap as well.  However Margard is part of the Lexan product line which is a lot more expensive and much more scratch resistance.  Surely a more scratch resistant product would be better?

Has anyone here any experience with using Margard instead of standard Lexan?

Depends on how you use it and take care of it. Proper care Lexan can last a long time. Plus if you make a boo-boo with a heat gun (guilty as charged) it doesn't hurt so bad... ;)

Will Margard stand up to a windshield wiper? :huh:

The local plastic supplier here has "Margard".  They also call it hardcoat lexan.  It is more scratch resistant but will not hold up to a wiper.

I'm told it is just as workable as standard lexan.
