What is PC?
Known by the trademarked names Lexan, Makrolon, Makroclear, arcoPlus® and others, PC is a widely used material in plastics manufacturing. Highly impact resistant, polycarbonates have a low scratch resistance.
Polycarbonate is High Impact and Shatter Resistance
Polycarbonate – PC is a durable plastic offering excellent shatter & scratch resistance. Polycarbonate is most commonly used in custom plastic parts for electronic components, construction materials, automotive & aircraft components, as well as data storage such as compact CD’s, Blu-ray disks, and DVDs.
Polycarbonates are groups of polymers that contain carbonate groups within their chemical structures. Their structure also allows them to sometimes be transparent and naturally transmit light with precision to that of glass.
This plastics stiff structure comes from its two components, methyl groups and phenyl groups. These groups act as a linear chain that is tightly bound. This structure also adds to its thermal resistance.
PC can be injection molded, blow molded, and extruded by our plastic engineers. This material has great electrical insulation properties, making it useful in hardware, safety helmets, computer parts, and vandal-proof windows.
