Polycarbonate is manufactured as a crystal clear and colorless, amorphous engineering thermoplastic notable for its high impact resistance (which remains high down to -40C). It has reasonably good temperature resistance, good dimensional stability and low creep but somewhat limited chemical resistance and is prone to environmental stress cracking. It also has poor fatigue and wear properties.
Applications include glazing, safety shields, lenses, casings and housings, light fittings, kitchenware (microwaveable), medical apparatus (sterilisable) and CD's (the discs).
Polycarbonate (PC) is a linear polycarbonic acid ester prepared from a dihydric phenol. Polycarbonate possesses extraordinarily good dimensional stability with a high impact strength which is maintained over a wide temperature range. This makes PC ideal for the manufacture of laboratory safety shields, vacuum desiccators and centrifuge tubes.
It has high strength and elastic coefficient, high impact and wide temperature range;
High transparency and excellent dyeability
Low molding shrinkage and good dimensional stability;
Good fatigue resistance;
Good weather resistance;
Excellent electrical characteristics;
Tasteless and odorless, harmless to the human body in line with health and safety.
