Polycarbonate

Versatile and tough, this engineering plastic resists impact.

For superior impact resistance in your applications, consider polycarbonate machine-grade thermoplastic. This transparent material has a high modulus of elasticity, without compromising strength or structure. Excellent electrical properties and low moisture absorption extend its viability for use in a variety of electronic applications. For increased rigidity, machine-grade polycarbonate can be reinforced with glass fiber.

Easily machined, polished, welded, and bonded, polycarbonate transmits 88% of light, making it ideal for windows and similar transparent products.
