Polycarbonate Solid Sheetpolycarbonate-solid-sheet-2


Polycarbonate PROPERTIES

Polycarbonate is a very durable material. Although it has high impact-resistance. The characteristics of polycarbonate are quite like those of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA, acrylic), but polycarbonate is stronger, usable in a wider temperature range.
This polymer is highly transparent to visible light and has better light transmission characteristics than many kinds of glass. Unlike most thermoplastics, polycarbonate can undergo large plastic deformations without cracking or breaking. As a result, it can be processed and formed at room temperature using sheet metal techniques, such as forming bends on a brake. Even for sharp angle bends with a tight radius, no heating is generally necessary.

This makes it valuable in prototyping applications where transparent or electrically non-conductive parts are needed, which cannot be made from sheet metal. Low water absorption high heat resistance, thermal stability and good electrical properties and very high impact strength are among the many desirable properties that Polycarbonates possess.
