Product Overview

Polycarbonate - Engineering Thermoplastic

Polycarbonate, a versatile and transparent thermoplastic polymer, is known for its high impact resistance, optical clarity, and mechanical strength, making it an ideal substitute for glass in many applications. 

Polycarbonate is known as a high-performance material because it is 200 times more resistant than glass and 20 times more than acrylic. It provides excellent light transmission, heat resistance, and electrical insulation, making it suitable for both commercial and industrial use. Easy to machine, 100% recyclable, and available in a variety of shapes, sizes, and finishes, Polycarbonate is the material of choice for professionals in a wide range of industries.

Features and Benefits:

  • Optical Clarity: Similar optical clarity as glass.
  • Impact Resistance: 200 times stronger than glass and 10 times as strong as acrylic.
  • UV Resistance: Options available that will resist yellowing and degradation when exposed to UV Radiation.
  • Low Moisture Absorption: Performs consistently even in humid conditions, keeping its integrity intact.
  • Lightweight: Polycarbonates light weight makes it an excellent replacement for glass.

Applications:

  • Safety Equipment: Polycarbonate will not shatter so it is commonly used in safety visors and glasses.
  • Bullet Resistant Glass: Polycarbonate is impact resistant enough to make bullet resistant glass.
  • Building: Because of its lightweight, durability, and optical clarity, polycarbonate makes an excellent alternative to glass in almost any circumstance.
  • Electronics: Great for insulative and heat-resistant components.
  • Industrial Machinery: Highly durable, polycarbonate makes excellent machine guards.
