Email Print PDF

Polycarbonates plastics are among the strongest, toughest, and most rigid thermoplastics. In addition, they have a ductility normally associated with the softer, lower-modulus thermoplastics. They are transparent materials and resistant to a variety of chemicals. The creep resistance of these plastic materials is among the best for thermoplastics.

Applications: Typical applications include the following: safety shields, lenses, glazing, electrical relay covers, helmets, pump impellers, headlights, interior aircraft components, telephone switchgear, snowmobile components, boat propellers, and housing for hand-held power tools.
