Polycarbonate is an amorphous engineered thermoplastic that has a high molecular weight and exceptionally high impact strength over a wide temperature range. Polycarbonate characteristics include an excellent combination of toughness, heat and flame resistance and dimensional stability, making Polycarbonate a great material used in applications from machine guards, to outdoor signs, boat hatch covers and many more.

Features and Benefits of Polycarbonate

Polycarbonate is extremely versatile from a fabrication standpoint. It can be both cold formed and heat formed.

Polycarbonate is characterized by its exceptionally high level of impact resistance, chemical resistance, temperature resistance and dimensional stability. Polycarbonate is 250 times more impact resistant than glass, making it an ideal choice for window and guarding applications.
