Description & Properties of POLYCARBONATE

Polycarbonate is a very durable, high performance plastic material.  Polycarbonate can easily be machined, material with high heat resistance, and is typically a great material for optics due to its capability of emitting light.  Polycarbonate is a heavy duty clear material with over 25 times more impact strength than Acrylic.

Glass fibers may be added in various amounts (10%, 20%, 30% and 40%) to increase tensile strength, stiffness, compressive strength, and lower the thermal expansion coefficient. Glass-filled polycarbonate is typically a natural (greenish white) in color, and is sometimes also available in a black color.

  • High impact strength
  • High tensile, shear and flextural strength
  • High modulus of elasticity
  • Good electrical properties
  • Excellent creep and low resistance
  • Low coefficient of thermal expansion
