Polycarbonate (abbreviated to PC) is a thermoplastic amorphous polymer that is formed by poly-condensation of bisphenol A and phosgene and is characterised in particular by its enormous impact strength.
Polycarbonate is known in Europe in particular under the brand names MAKROLON (BAYER AG) or LEXAN (SABIC).
Like almost all plastics, polycarbonate has electrically insulating properties and is resistant to dilute acids, many oils, fats and ethanol, but is not resistant to bases, hydrocarbons, ketones and esters.
Extruded polycarbonate sheets are mostly transparent plastic sheets that are heat resistant up to a temperature of 100°C (short-term up to 120°C).
Polycarbonate sheets have a very high impact resistance and rigidity and are therefore particularly well suited as shatterproof glazing in plant and mechanical engineering, or as roofing and are considered a shatterproof glass substitute. However, unlike acrylic glass, this plastic is notch-sensitive and has low abrasion resistance.
The physical density of polycarbonate is 1.2g/cm3, just like scratch-resistant acrylic, about 20% higher than the density of water, which is why polycarbonate has no floating properties.
Depending on the type, polycarbonate in thicknesses of 1 - 6mm complies with the fire standard ISO EN 13501-1 (flame retardant).
The polycarbonate sheets offered in our shop are equipped with UV protection on both sides and can be used equally well indoors and outdoors.
Polycarbonate can be easily processed using machining methods. Polycarbonate can also be easily sawn, drilled, ground or milled with standard tools. Thermoforming or thermoforming of polycarbonate are also common processing techniques.
Polycarbonate is polar and can be dissolved in polar solvents such as acetone and for this reason PC is very easy to bond.
We also supply on request
Our sheets are made of UV-stabilised polycarbonate and are supplied with a protective film on both sides to protect them from scratching during delivery and processing. Our polycarbonate sheets are solid sheets and not twinwall sheets or (double) web sheets.
Polycarbonate is used in most cases as shatterproof glazing, because this material does not splinter or break even at low temperatures. Polycarbonate is also frequently used in industrial plants, as well as in machine and apparatus construction, due to its shatterproof properties.
In addition to polycarbonate sheets cut to your individual size with millimetre precision, we can also produce milled parts in almost any contour thanks to our modern CNC milling centres. All we need from you is a design drawing as a DXF or DWG file (alternative file formats: STEP, IGES, AI (Adobe Illustrator) and EPS files).
In order to provide you with an inexpensive, customised offer including shipping costs, exactly according to your specifications and needs, we also require information about the desired number of pieces per delivery in addition to the sketch.
