Progard Plastics Logo



As Australia’s leading plastics consultancy group, Progard has assisted Australian customers from all sectors/industries using polycarbonates.

The strength, optical transparency, durability and tolerance to heat has made them a favourite material for many applications such as automotive glazing, health care safety wear, carbonated beverage bottles, and even optical firmware such as CD/DVDs. Makrolon, a product of Bayer Material Science, is the world’s leader in polycarbonate application, both in its own right, and in the many custom blends to which this remarkable material lends itself.
