Polycarbonate is one of the toughest thermoplastic materials available. Its natural color is clear and it is easily extrudable, has excellent clarity and can be colored to fit your needs. P/C is ideal in high continuous use temperatures (up to 250O F), but it is limited when exposed to high heat and humidity for extended periods of time. P/C has excellent outdoor weathering properties and is commonly used when an indestructible replacement for glass is required.
Some common applications include:
• Eye glasses
P/C also lends itself to many secondary processes such as welding, solvent bonding, heat stamping and printing. It can be machined and reshaped by using heat.
