Polycarbonate Thermoplastic

Typical thickness ranges for polycarbonate are from 0.030″ thick up to 4.0″ thick.

Benefits of Polycarbonate Thermoplastic

Polycarbonate is a dimensionally stable, transparent thermoplastic with outstanding impact resistance, and is used in many applications which demand high performance properties.  Virtualty unbreakable, it is approximately 250 times stronger than plate glass and thirty times stronger than acrylic of equal thickness.  Makrolon® FD polycarbonate sheet complies with FDA requirements for food contact.  The addition of glass fibers to polycarbonate in various amounts (10%, 20%, 30% and 40%) increases tensile strength, stiffness, compressive strength, and lowers the thermal expansion coefficient.

Optical and mirror grades exist for applications that demand certain visual aspects.
