Industry Overview:
  Polycarbonates are perhaps one of the most pervasive plastic technologies in use today. Because it is both durable and transparent, it is ideal for use in a number of diverse applications, from DVDs and electronic components to ‘theft-proof’ packaging and bullet-resistant windows. Other uses include police riot gear, lightweight luggage, smartphone unibody cases, and eyeglass lenses.

One of the biggest advantages that polycarbonates hold over other materials is their ability to be formed at room temperature, utilizing sheet metal shaping techniques. Even though they can be predominantly shaped at room temperature, they still retain other properties that have made all plastics popular materials: they are durable and resistant, light weight, and cost-efficient.

Common Applications:
  • Bisphenol A (BPA)
  • Burning rates
  • Coating – wet polysiloxane etc.
  • Corrosion, cracking
  • Ductility
  • Extrusion
  • Flame retardants
  • Melt flow
  • Moisture, warping
  • Molding – injection, blow, rotational etc.
  • Phosgene
  • Polycarbonates – regrind, virgin
  • Scratch resistance
  • Standards – UL (Underwriter Laboratories) etc.
  • Thermoforming
  • 3-D printing
